    Only one university in the nation ...

    * Has its football team in the BCS Top 25

    * Has its men's basketball team in the AP Top 25

    * Has its women's basketball team in the AP Top 25

    Anyone want to guess who it is?

    Hardly. My guess is that it would surprise most people.

    I believe it would be Stanford.

    Good guess. No cigar.

    Not in top 25 in men's basketball.

    Unbelievable isn't it? A relatively small*, private, Baptist university in Texas is the only unversity throughout the entire country that has all three teams in the top 25.

    Not Texas, not UCLA, not Georgia, not Michigan, not Wisconsin, not Ohio State, not Florida or any other major state university. But Baylor.

    * Baylor has about 12,500 undergraduate students, which is hardly "small." But in the era of big time college athletics, with those universities noted above and others with 30,000 - 40,000 students (or more), 12,500 is pretty small.

    Pretty amazing.
