FAB FIVE

FLORIDA

The Gators won national championships in football and basketball within 90 days of each other earlier this year. Enough said.

TEXAS

Two coaches with North Carolina ties – former UNC football coach Mack Brown and Hickory native Rick Barnes – have proven that two big-time programs can co-exist. Brown has averaged 11 victories per season since 2002, with a national title in 2005. Barnes' squad has averaged 25 victories, with 10 NCAA Tournament wins, in that span.

OHIO STATE

The Buckeyes produced national title game appearances in both basketball and football last year. They also turned out the Heisman Trophy winner (Troy Smith) and the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft (Greg Oden).

WISCONSIN

In basketball, the Badgers boast a streak of nine straight NCAA Tournament appearances, behind only Arizona, Kansas, Kentucky, Duke and Michigan State. The football squad has finished in the top three of the Big Ten for the last three years, averaging 10 victories in that span.

UCLA

The hoops program is flourishing again, with back-to-back Final Four trips. In football, the Bruins have made six straight bowl appearances.

Four on the verge: Southern California, Tennessee, Louisville, Oregon.
