The Final Four

[4]
Posted: Jan 21, 2018 5:10 PM
 

Who among the final four in the football playoffs --- Clemson, Georgia, Alabama and Oklahoma ----- is known as a basketball powerhouse? Who among the elite basketball programs ---- North Carolina, Duke, Kentucky, Kansas and Villanova ----- is known as a football powerhouse? Very few programs at the top of the football or basketball programs, excel in both sports.


Oklahoma is top 10 in basketball

OU won't be top 10 after this week as they've already lost 1 or 2 this week. They're a one man show and were also in 2015 with Buddy Heild dropping 30+ a game. He said elite programs not programs with a good year. Oregon I would say is a different story, they tend to stay in the picture a bit in basketball more than they do in football but they're alright at both, can't say elite.


That’s a good point...this year Oklahoma Basketball

Is pretty solid, however they are not a perennial power. The most recent program that comes to mind was Florida in the mid to late 2000’s. Won two titles in basketball and football, with both teams winning it all in 2006.

2006


Ohio State is typically very good at both.***

I was going to say, historically, probably Ohio State.

Much as I hate to admit that! Aren't they first in B10 bball right now? And we beat them on their home court earlier this year!

Texas was good at both for a while

with Brown and Barnes


Michigan St has been good at both***

Very true. Nobody consistently is great at both.

Oklahoma is even overrated this year and have had some moments, but they are nothing overall.

OU has been to 5 final fours.

Georgia made one too.

Bama and Clemson.....Not so much.

Michigan State has done really well at both

Not quite national title caliber in football, but they made the playoff two years ago and have won the Big Ten a few times.

Florida had an amazing run where they won two football titles AND two basketball titles in 3 years. That was ridiculous...
