Best All-Time College Sports Conference

The PAC-10 is the Best All-Time College Sports Conference. When you consider all sports, it’s really not even close. Once you get past the major sports (football, basketball and baseball, the PAC-10 is clearly #1 in most of the other sports.

Let’s look at the SEC first. The SEC has had an incredible history. It has been home to 7 national championships in football alone in the past 20 years. This is an incredible figure. If we look at the past 3 years alone, we have seen Florida, LSU, and Florida bring home BCS titles. Let’s forget about football for a minute, even though it’s what funds most of the Athletic programs at these big time schools, and we will take a look at every other sport within each conference. The SEC is home to roughly 167 National Championships excluding football. This includes sports such as, M/W Basketball, baseball, softball, m/w soccer, m/w indoor track and field, m/w outdoor track and field, bowling, equestrian, lacrosse, m/w volleyball, swimming, diving, golf, tennis, cross country, gymnastics.

Arkansas and LSU lead the SEC in total NCAA National Championship wins with 41 each and Georgia coming in at 3rd with 26 titles. Arkansas however had 17 titles prior to joining the SEC, but we will count them all in this case. After hearing these staggering numbers you may think and believe that the SEC deserves to be the best conference of all time.

But when you compare these statistics to the PAC-10, the SEC stands far off in the distance and does not even compare. This past college athletics year alone, that means the 07-08 school year, we have Arizona State, Stanford, and UCLA topping the charts with a total of 6 National Titles. That’s almost unheard of. Three PAC 10 schools lead the rest of the Nation in Titles for the past year. WOW!

But wait, it gets even better. Washington State has only had a measly 2 National Titles in school history. There are 4 SEC schools with 1 or less. This includes Vanderbilt with 1, South Carolina with 1, and Ole Miss and Miss State with 0.

The next team on the bottom of the list for the PAC 10 is Oregon State with only 3 titles. That’s still more than those 4 teams combined. I don’t even want to mention UCLA because my argument wouldn’t even be fair, when you see that they have 104 National Championship Titles, one may finally start to think that the PAC 10 needs credit where credit is due in regards to the ALL TIME BEST college sports conference.

The PAC 10 as a whole has roughly 367 NCAA National Championship titles in all sports combined. I would love to see a conference with better statistics, but it’s just not possible. If we look during the 07-08 seasons we will see that only 4 SEC schools recorded a National Title, however there were 7 PAC 10 schools that recorded a title. I rest my case.

The top NCAA college athletic conference in America is clearly the Pac-10.
