I took a look at the men’s champions in Football, Basketball, Baseball, Lacrosse, Hockey, and Soccer from 2000 to the present to see if my impression – that we no longer win anything in men’s sports – was correct, and here is what I found. We have won 1 such championship since 2000: Men’s Soccer, 2013.

Contrast that with:

North Carolina – 6 (Basketball - 3, Soccer – 2, Lacrosse – 1)

Virginia – 6 (Lacrosse – 3, Soccer – 2, Baseball – 1)

Duke – 6 (Basketball – 3, Lacrosse – 3)

Syracuse – 6 (Lacrosse – 5, Basketball – 1)

Florida – 4 (Football – 2, Basketball – 2)

LSU – 4 (Football – 2, Baseball – 2)

UConn – 4 (Basketball – 3, Soccer – 1)

Alabama – 4 (Football – 4)

Denver – 4 (Hockey – 3, Lacrosse – 1)

BC – 4 (Hockey – 4)

(Happily, Michigan stands at 0, although their football future right now looks far better than ours. And, yes, I know I left off fencing . . . along with golf, cross country, etc.)
