Murray & EKU about a 2 or 2.5, not far behind Morehead.

I'm guessing you skipped NKU because you consider them an Ohio team? 05-nono Ok, I'll include them in Ohio

10 - Ohio State - Probably tied for #1 in the country with Texas and Michigan

8 - Cincinnati - compared to P5s in similar size regions (like Iowa, Oregon, and West Virginia), large fan base when their winning, but a smaller core of die-hards. Institutional commitment to football and basketball.

6 - Dayton - possibly the biggest basketball-only fanbase in the country
6 - Xavier - Big East money and more luxury boxes, but smaller fanbase than Dayton
(note -for basketball, Dayton and Xavier have almost equal resources to Cincinnati)

5 - Ohio
5 - Toledo
4.5 - Akron
4.5 - Kent
4.5 - Miami - they used to be tied with Xavier, but they've really fallen off the map
4 - Bowling Green
4 - Northern Kentucky - easily the best arena of the Horizon schools
4 - Youngstown State - the Tressel machine has given them a fair amount of resources for athletics.
3 - Cleveland State
2 - Wright State

I mostly agree with this, but would put Cleveland State at a 2 and Wright State at 0.5, 0 if athletics end up getting cancelled, 1 otherwise. They have a big arena, but it's the non-basketball events that people show up for.

RE: Rank Division I programs in your state in terms of resources
1. Maryland - Probably one of the biggest disparities in resources between a state's flagship and its other institutions in the country.

2. Navy - Obviously not a resource issue when it comes to athletics but rather the requirements that go along with being at the Academy.

3. Loyola - Large endowment, but the shift from the peer institutions of NE/Mid-Atlantic Catholic schools in MAAC to the academic-focused schools of the Patriot. Great lacrosse program but minimal fan support in basketball.

4. Towson - Emerging FCS level contender, both revenue sports have turned around with the move to the Colonial. Brand new basketball arena. Needs to grow its fan support in football, but will be tough with the area's love of the Ravens.

5. UMBC - More focused on growing its academic profile than athletics success. Some lacrosse success like many Maryland schools, but little else of note.

6. Mt St Mary's - Small private school and relatively remote from the larger metro areas. Decent basketball tradition for its level.

7. Morgan State - FCS football and the highest endowment of the three HBCUs, but limited athletics success.

8. Coppin State - Some basketball tradition from the 90s and 00s, located in Baltimore with Morgan, limited athletics success.

9. UMES - Remote geographically with no recent history of athletics success. One of the least competitive schools in the MEAC.

I'd lower Akron and elevate Kent. Kent has very good Olympic sport program compared to Akron. Plus they more than twice as large of a school.

Wright State Has a very good baseball program but that is about it. It might as well be an OSU branch college. When my cousin was there in the early 90s there was some basketball support but that has eroded somewhat.

I would guess Minnesota would be the biggest disparity.

Do you ever listen to yourself talk?? Or maybe even read the thread topic before posting?

RE: Rank Division I programs in your state in terms of resources
8/9 - BC - ACC - Power conference member, I believe they just passed $200 Million in athletic facilities renovations

5 - UMass - A10 - Just completed new basketball and football facilities. With a huge football stadium issue.

4 - Harvard - Ivy - Probably more money that any university in the country, but doesn't use much of it for sports.

3 - Holy Cross - Patriot - In the process of a $100 million sports upgrade. Plenty of money. They de-emphasized sports in the 70's.

2 - UMass Lowell - America East - Elite level hockey recently, the rest of the sports are brand new to D1. Recently took over ownership of the Tsongas Arena for basketball/hockey. A great baseball facility shared with the Red Sox A ball team.

(04-09-2017 10:08 AM)sctvman Wrote:  SC has 12 Division I programs, more than almost any state of our size (less than 5 million population). They are at varying rates of resources, but the big schools, of course are at the top.

1a. South Carolina (10)- SEC money has helped to make Carolina one of the fastest growing ADs in the country. Before the SEC (25 years ago), it was a school with no identity. Now, it is doing well in most sports, with the basketball success only helping.

1b. Clemson (10)- Basically no gap between Carolina and Clemson. Clemson's football facilities rival a couple of the NFL teams. Their football money allowed them to renovate their baseball stadium and basketball arena, and the school's prestige has only grown since Dabo came in.

Huge gap

3. Coastal Carolina (probably a 6): Coastal has become the #3 in the past few years, with the baseball national title, football going to Sun Belt, more media coverage, and the new basketball arena. As recently as the late 2000s, CCU was probably 6 or 7.

4. The Citadel (5): Citadel has a lot of resources for a FCS. Large football stadium, a league (the SoCon) which they can do very well in after schools like App and Georgia Southern left, lots of old money alums who spend a lot of money into the program.

5. Wofford (5): A school with a small enrollment that does very well. Has been very consistent in football and basketball the last 20 years, has Jerry Richardson (Panthers owner)'s backing, with a arena named after him, and Panthers training camp.

6. Furman (5): Another school with a lot of money headed to it. Has added lacrosse in the last few years, growing market, and many of the same resources as The Citadel (Furman's long-standing rival).

7. College of Charleston (5): Growing program. 2/3 female students, has no football team, but has grown in prestige with the new basketball arena, and their conference move has helped them recruit students throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

4-7 is interchangeable. There is a gap though to the rest.

8. Winthrop (4): Basically a men's basketball school to most observers, but good in soccer and other sports. Stuck in the shadow of other Charlotte area schools. Sends out a lot of teachers.

9. Presbyterian (3.5): Small school in a small town (40 miles from Greenville, 60 from Columbia). Hasn't really had success in most sports since they moved to D1. Does have a pharmacy school and some well-to-do alums.

10. Charleston Southern (3): The third school in Charleston. Football has improved over the past few years, but basketball still plays in 900 seat gym. Just lost their head coach to a coordinator position at Coastal. Doesn't have a lot of resources, but have done pretty well with what they have.

11. USC-Upstate (2.5): Basically an outlier. Only SC school in A-Sun, and hasn't grown an identity since they joined D1 about a decade ago. Still treated as a "branch campus" by Columbia.

12. SC State (2): Has been a threat of closing at pretty much all times over the past decade. Came very close to happening, but school has stabilized over the past year. Football program does well, but basketball draws poor attendance, and has no baseball program.

Some of the D2s in SC actually do very well. Newberry, Francis Marion, and USC-Aiken would possibly be D1s in other states.

Hard to argue with any of this, although I'd probably move SC State up to 9 or 10 because of their profile and football success.

NKU is a Kentucky team, I would put them in there with Murray, Morehead & EKU.
