Just in the same way they rank medical, business and law schools, assume they treated college sports like a professional program with factors such as tradition, NFL placement, quality of coaching staff, on-field performance, etc. serving as the metrics. If you consider the only sports which most people care about (football, men's basketball and, to a lesser extent, women's basketball), who would be the T14 of college sports?
Not going to rank in order but Oklahoma, Texas, 'Bama, Florida, USC, LSU, Ohio State (primarily football schools with some basketball crossover ) Duke, North Carolina, UCLA, Kansas (primarily Basketball powerhouses). So that's 11. Maybe Notre Dame and Michigan (even though they've sucked as of late in football). Then I don't know Standford? Wisconsin? Miami?
so in no particular order
7. Ohio State
9. North Carolina
12. Notre Dame
