Arguably the greatest athlete of all time (greatest olympic athlete anyway) is a Michigan alum. Who's got it better than us?

There was a list on US News taking about colleges with the most athletes and Michigan wasn't listed. Judging by this list they should have been. Anybody know why not?

It was a club sport. There were a lot of good sailers though, some went on to compete at various levels after college. I knew Bora (sort of) through my roommates and he was obviously head amd shoulders above everyone else. The kind of sailing he does is closer to trapeze circus act than the traditional dinghy sailing most people are familiar with.
