    The 30 most dominant college-sports programs

    >>The University of Florida has the most dominant athletics program in the country.

    Business Insider has compiled a list of the schools that run the most dominating sports programs from top to bottom.

    To create the ranking we used data from the last three years of the Capital One Cup (which ranks how well schools do in all sports each year), championships won since 2000 in the keystone sports of football, men's basketball, and women's basketball, revenue generated by the school's athletic department over the last three years according to the Department of Education, attendance in the keystone sports over the last year, and Niche's ranking of the best college athletic programs for students.<<

    No question that UConn is ESPN's best value in its entire "book of business".

    I kept scrolling looking for BCU or Rutgers, but I had to stop due to stomach illness after what seems to be a naked picture of sleazy Rick at number 28. Maybe our regional friends are at number 29 and 30.

    Tell me more about how UConn doesn't bring value to the B12 or ACC again?

    UT and UConn to the B1G!

    #7 certainly "dilutes the pool", right ESPN?

    To a bunch of universities president's representing culturally southern schools who look down on northerners to be in with, wile being so engrossed in the cultural power of that game and the associated money, yes UConn dilutes the pool in their eyes. Not that hard to see where they are coming from.

    It's an "old money" club, with a few grandfathered exceptions. UConn is a relative newbie to football and school Presidents, ADs, and networks are making sure we pay our dues. As soon as UConn football can win again and draw fans again, our time will come. Football performance and fan support is quite literally the ONLY thing preventing us from a P5.
