    Started out small.

    They won back-to-back titles in 64/65 with small teams.

    Then didnt even make the NCAA tourney in 1966.

    Went on a tear from 67 to 74. (The teams between Alcindor and Walton were a testement to John Woodens coaching genius)

    Not sure what is the problem with the football team.

    Should have won AT LEAST 5 NCs with their location and recruiting advantages.

    Had one NC in the 50s.

    Pulled off some upsets - and won some Rose Bowls.

    Basically underacheivers..................

    I think there might be a bunch of ladies at the University of Connecticut who might have something to say about that "dynasty" talk. Not to take anything away from Coach Wooden and those UCLA teams, but I do think the UCONN women need to be in the discussion as well.

    USC basketball is the pits.

    Have done ZILCH in their history. (any final 4s??????????????)

    You would think - with their location - they would be better.
