Growing up in Maryland as a baltimore sports fan I still occasionally check some maryland forums to see what people are saying about the teams. There was a topic looking at big ten and national titles since Maryland joined the big ten. Maryland is tied for second with Michigan for most big ten titles (its a little wonky since they only include regular season, not tournament titles) behind osu, which is pretty impressive since they only sponsor 20 sports coimpared to Michigan and OSU's 28.
But what stood out to me was the number of team national championships. Since MD joined the big ten, in 2014 for sports Michigan hasn't won a single team national title. The schools that have according to them:
OSU: 5, wrestling, womens rowing, mens voleyball x2, and football
PSU: 4 Wrestling x2, women's soccer, women's voleyball
MD: 3, women's lacorsse x2, men's lacrosse
Minnesota: 2, women's hockey x2
Nebraska: 1 women's voleyball
MSU: 1, women's cross country
So what was our last team national championship? I'm thinking it was men's gymnastics? Also does this dissapoint anyone? It seems like we have a lot of sports where we are good but pretty few were we are the top program in the country conversation.
