    Football The "real" #1
    Baseball Ranked #1
    Basketball Probable NCAA berth
    Womens Basketball Ranked #14 (and should be higher)
    Softball Ranked #3
    Women's track Ranked #1
    Men's Track Ranked #2
    Women's Tennis Ranked #2
    Men's Tennis Ranked #12
    Gymnastic Team Ranked #4

    I don't know about Stanford and their water polo but 7 teams ranked in the top 5 nationally is pretty darned good. I think we want Skip to stay around for a long time.

    I think you have to give Mark Emmert a lot of credit here also.

    I said, all during football season: Don't think for one second that
    it's a coincidence that all of this success is happening on Skip's
    watch as AD. To say that the man knows a thing or two about taking programs to the next level would be a gross understatement.

    I brought my daughter to LSU vs Auburn in gymnastics last week and will be going to watch them beat Ohio Friday. Excellant to watch. These girls do things that have hospital wrote all over them. That's extreme sports for me.

    The rankings go UCLA, Bama, Georgia, LSU. Way to go SEC.

    There was a great article in the TP the other day about the state of LSU athletics and it was linked on here somewhere I believe.

    They are doing a great job!!:geaux:

    Emmert is responsible for Saban. Without that foresight, the rest of those rankings are much more insignificant.
