I really don’t have any solid answers for this and I hope some of you reading this will give your comments and opinions. I read an old article written back in 2011 that listed the top 20 football/basketball schools. The top 3 were Ohio State, Florida, and Texas,. So, why can’t Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Georgia,… do this? Is it facilities, coaching, or what? I always assumed those who said our schools (SEC) are football schools and basketball takes a back-seat to football were correct. This seemed to mean that schools can’t dominate in both sports. Then, Florida happened. This is during the years of their SEC and national dominance in football. Now they are winning national championships in basketball. How can this be, and better yet why can’t Alabama/Auburn/Georgia/LSU…..do this? All these schools seemed to have been on the right track at some point, then it just fizzles away. So, can these schools attract big name coaches or do they have to hire a “rising star” and hope he turns into a Billy Donovan?
Is North Carolina State a better job than Alabama/LSU/Auburn/Georgia? Yes
Is North Carolina State a better job than Florida?
