Thread: Team of the Decade So Far: Tallied Up

    Default Team of the Decade So Far: Tallied Up

    Theres a thread about this over on TheMat about the debate between Okie State, Minnesota, and Iowa as prospective teams of the decade.

    The decade quite obviously isn't over yet but I thought it would be interesting to actually tally things up to see how these teams fall as well as what teams would (assumingly) complete the top 5.

    I gave 10 points for a team championship, 9 for a runner up, and so on all the way down to 1 point for finishing 10th. Finishing outside the top 10 gets no points. I also gave 5 points for a National Duals championship, and 2 points for an individual champion.

    1. Oklahoma State: 113
    2. Minnesota: 102
    3. Iowa: 83
    4. Iowa State: 65
    5. Oklahoma: 58
    6. Michigan: 37

    If you count a decade as 00-09 (which I do) then Iowa has a shot at leap frogging Minnesota this year to move into the #2 spot but it would seem that Oklahoma State has their #1 spot cemented.

    If we're tlaking about program overall of the decade, I think it has to be Okie State. If we're talking about singular team, it's either that Minnesota team that had 10 AA's or that Okie State team with 5 champs...so far.

    Can Missouri get a most improved award?

    Not for this year but for the decade, I would say so.

    I would also consider CMU.

    If you take the individual awards away from the TEAM of the decade, the results are a lot closer:
    1. Oklahoma State - 87 points
    2. Minnesota - 86 points
    3. Iowa - 67 points
    4. Iowa State - 61 points
