It sure seems like all 3 major Men’s sports are currently in good shape. Lots of ground to make up in football, but seems like we are on the right track.
Made me reminisce a bit, thinking back on my favorite sports year of the 3 major sports. We have had several examples of 2 out of the 3 teams having a great season in the same year, but never really all 3. For me, my favorite 2 years were:
Football: 11-1. Finished #3 after destroying OU in the Orange Bowl
Basketball: 32-4. SWC Champions. First ever Final Four, 3rd place. Finished #5.
Baseball: 31-13. 2nd in SWC. No postseason, but set the table for the first CWS team the following year
Football: 10-2. Won SWC. Ranked in top 10 much of year. Lost to Tennessee in Cotton Bowl
Basketball: The beginning of a great decade. 30-5. Won SWC/Tourney. Final Four. Finished #4.
Baseball: 47-15. Won SWC. Lots of players returned from CWS team, but lost in regional
Any years you remember to be better than these?
