This question is pretty straightforward, and I think I already know which answer will win, but it's a great topic for debate all the same.
Given the choice of two years: Baylor's 2011-2012 or Louisville's 2012-2013, which would you choose for your athletic program in totality?
.@UofLSports ends great year 3 wins shy of Baylor's '11-12 NCAA record 129 total wins in FB/MBB/WBB/BASE (BU 10/30/40/49, UL 11/35/29/51).— Heath Nielsen (@HeathNielsen) June 17, 2013
Baylor in 2011-2012 (The Year of the Bear):
National record for wins in a season (129)
40-0 WBB, National Championship
Louisville in 2012-2013 (not named yet, we'll call it the Year of the Cardinals):
MBB National Championship
BCS bowl win over Florida
NCG for WBB
College World Series appearance
I could list all the accolades of each team's individual players, like all-conference teams, other national awards, etc., but I won't. Let's just stand on this. Give me your thoughts in the comments. I think there are good arguments on either side; supporters of Baylor probably point to the uniqueness of 40-0 and a Heisman Trophy, while Louisville fans put the MBB natty up there and say little else.
