For a long time, the PAC was the conference for Volleyball, swimming, and track.

The Big East was always robust in rowing/crew. Same with the Ivy.

For the SEC, women's gymnastics and equestrian are two "hidden gems" that don't come up a lot but the SEC consistently does really well in

Here's a rough stab at some:

SEC - Football/Baseball
ACC - Basketball/Lacrosse/Baseball
B1G - Football/Hockey(?)
Pac - Swimming
Big XII - Wrestling
Big East - Basketball

I'm most interested in finding hidden gems. For example, are there any conference that are especially (more so than others) into fencing? Skiing? Riding? Field hockey? Soccer? And so on.

Perhaps you can make a case for Big 10 Lacrosse in a few years -- adding Maryland and Johns Hopkins to Penn State and Ohio State helps credibility, and Rutgers is ranked #7 at the moment.

But it's only the eastern schools in the conference that participate.

I think that you have to include basketball, hockey and wrestling for the BIG.

Yeah... University of Colorado (on the D1 level) always did well in both downhill and Nordic (cross-country) skiing.

Also in the State of Colorado is Western State College which actually allows you to MAJOR in the subject.

Not that I live in their footprint, but what sports are Big West fans rightly proud of?

Baseball. Fullerton's a traditional power and LBSU and Cal-Irvine have both had solid strings of success.

I'd add volleyball to the B1G. Maybe I'm biased being in Nebraska and all, but the conference has been pretty stacked in recent years.

The conferences that had at least one team win a game in the NCAA Division I Men's basketball tournament every year from 1998-2012 were the Big Ten, Big East, SEC, ACC, Big 12, and the Horizon League.
