Winning the Sports Minutiae Battle

One of the columnists over at FoxSports released a list of his College Hoops and Helmets rankings for the past year. Basically, it ranks Division I universities, taking into account how they did in both of the major income sports for the 2005-06 school year.

I'm not one to gloat, especially not over something that doesn't really matter, but . . . oh, to hell with it. I'm gloating. Two of Our Man in LA's fave college sports programs - Texas and Ohio State - cleaned up in the rankings, coming in as #1 and #2.

Probably it's not surprising. Both are 2 seeds in the NCAA tourney beginning Thursday. Both had pretty big deal BCS bowl wins in January.

But it's nice to see them coming in ahead of hated rivals. You know, like Oklahoma, Florida State, folks like this.

Check out the list here. Argue if you will.

And by the way, undergrad alma mater Northwestern did OK, too, ranking 37 out of possible 119. And UCLA, home to Doc Noel (and the Professional Screenwriting Program that I attended last year) came in 4th.

I know it means nothing. But the air does seem a little fresher today.
