It would be better if he didn't include Arkansas, Missouri, and A&M teams that were representing other conferences when they won their titles.
Also, Tulane won a national title in tennis in '59 while representing the SEC...guess that isn't worth mentioning......

You may be right. Kentucky's basketball program qualified for it in '89, according to the NCAA's investigating committee, but then that committee chickened out and let them continue playing.

That listing is incorrect--Tennessee reduced their capacity by 4,000. If LSU adds just a few more seats, then they'll vault to #7 on the list. It's odd that A&M has a larger stadium than LSU now--A&M used to play LSU only in Baton Rouge for years and years because their stadium was so much smaller...
