Tracking UK's national championships

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Much has been made of South Carolina's national championship in baseball, in large part because it was the school's first national title in any men's sport -- ever.

That had us here at UK thinking about how many total national championships Kentucky has and it apparently caught the attention of ESPN blogger Chris Low. The Southeastern Conference blogger beat us to the punch a little bit but nonetheless has a great breakdown of all the national championships in the SEC conference.

Kentucky ranks eighth all-time in the SEC with seven men's national championships. All seven titles are with men's basketball, although, according to research by Jeff Sagarin, who compiles the Sagarin Computer Ratings for USA Today, UK is the national champion for the 1950 season under that ranking system.

A bit surprisingly, Arkansas paces the SEC with 30 national championships. The Razorbacks have a rather large margin of separation as well, as the next-closest school is LSU with 20.

Check out the full breakdown on Low's blog.

Your first graph is not exactly true... 2010 baseball was the Gamecocks' first MEN's NCAA Championship... South Carolina women won the 2002 Outdoor Track & Field Championships.
