Who's the Greatest SEC School in Football, Basketball and Baseball COMBINED?

Roll 'Bama Roll takes a stab at ranking the SEC based off more than just football

The last week or so I've seen (and been a part of) multiple conversations on different SBN sites revolving around the ranking of SEC teams. There were tiers with Alabama being on a level all by their lonesome and then a mixed bag of who should fall behind them. Of course these discussions focused primarily around football..

On those same threads, LSU fans were hinting at their baseball success when compared to Alabama's "claimed" dominance in football. And I'm sure if Kentucky fans had a say in the matter they would be rather quick to throw their eight National Titles in basketball in all our faces.

This got me thinking, "Which SEC team is the ALL-TIME greatest among the 3 major sports? OFF-SEASON Y'ALL

For fairness sake I left out Mizzou and A&M for the main reason that this is all-time stats and they've only been in the conference for a year. Yes, we are using all-time wins, not just SEC, but again, one year. (I had to use all-time wins because of USCe and Arkansas' relative short time in the conference)

I also kept the scope to just Football, Baseball and Basketball. I don't really feel the necessity to clarify why I didn't include others. ($)

Finally, many times over the last week during these conversations some Bama fans (and many others as well) pointed out that some fan bases ::cough LSU cough:: like to think that history only started in the year 2000. To make sure every team was placed on equal footing this is ALL-TIME wins, Championships (yes, some claimed) and winning percentages. Example: I completely understand that Ole Miss hasn't won a national championship, in any of these three sports, since the invention of the color television. Doesn't matter. They have a championship and it counts, no matter how old it is.

Stats were complied by several different sources including NCAA.com, SECnetwork.com, several media guides, wikipedia pages and even some twitter resources. If my stats or total numbers are off, please let me know.

Football Wins Losses Ties Win % SEC Championships Claimed National Championships
Alabama 827 321 43 71% 23 15
Tennessee 799 354 53 68% 13 6
LSU 744 393 47 65% 11 3
Georgia 760 402 54 65% 12 5
Florida 680 387 40 63% 8 3
Auburn 721 414 47 63% 7 3
Arkansas 683 464 40 59% 0 1
Mississippi 628 492 35 56% 6 3
South Carolina 566 544 44 51% 0 0
Kentucky 580 582 44 50% 2 1
Vanderbilt 573 578 50 50% 0 0
Mississippi State 515 549 39 49% 1 0

Everyone knows who the king of college football is and this only further proves the point. Alabama rules all. Are we on a Bama only tier or in some god like atmospheric level with every other SEC team looking up at our accomplishments? YOU BET YOUR GUMPNESS IT DOES.

Honestly though, only Tennessee, LSU and UGA (where do they get 5 from?) have any beef with being left out of the "top tier".

Basketball Wins Losses Win % SEC Championships Claimed National Championships
Kentucky 2084 649 76% 27 8
Florida 1258 1033 55% 3 2
Arkansas 1537 866 64% 1 1
LSU 1425 1090 57% 1 1
Alabama 1546 936 62% 6 0
Tennessee 1507 957 61% 4 0
Mississippi State 1310 1080 55% 3 0
Vanderbilt 1491 1045 59% 2 0
Georgia 1298 1204 52% 2 0
Mississippi 1169 1218 49% 2 0
Auburn 1241 1091 53% 1 0
South Carolina 1297 1148 53% 0 0

Again, there is a clear cut winner and the gap from 1st to 2nd, at least when it comes to SEC titles, is the largest of any sport. KENTUCKY Y'ALL.

Only Florida can claim to be at or near the level of Kentucky and honestly that's laughable too. It's Kentucky and then everyone else. And seriously Ole Miss? 49% winning percentage? Try harder.

Baseball Wins Losses Ties Win % SEC Championships Claimed National Championships
LSU 2172 1428 5 60% 10 6
South Carolina 2211 1375 17 62% 1 2
Georgia 2019 1516 23 57% 0 1
Alabama 2356 1376 23 63% 7 0
Mississippi State 2308 1336 27 63% 7 0
Florida 2129 1394 24 60% 6 0
Tennessee 1847 1444 14 56% 3 0
Auburn 1879 1270 11 61% 3 0
Vanderbilt 1902 1577 35 55% 2 0
Mississippi 1907 1423 20 57% 2 0
Kentucky 1468 1315 22 52% 0 0
Arkansas 1829 1178 5 61% 0 0

I'm starting to see a trend here with one team dominating each sport and the rest of the league just trying to keep up.. LSU has a stranglehold on the "most dominant baseball team" tier and again, it's not really close. Baseball is South Carolina's claim to fame and that has been only in the past 5 years. Mississippi State and Florida both post 6+ SEC championships but none have any national titles.

I would like to point out that Alabama has the highest winning percentage and the most wins. #gumping

So....

Who's the Greatest SEC Team in Football, Basketball and Baseball COMBINED?
All Time Wins Losses Total Win % SEC Championships Claimed National Championships
Alabama 4729 2701 7430 64% 32 15
Kentucky 4132 2546 6678 62% 29 9
LSU 4341 2911 7252 60% 13 8
Tennessee 4153 2755 6908 60% 16 6
Georgia 4077 3122 7199 57% 17 3
Florida 4067 3175 7242 56% 14 4
Auburn 3841 2775 6616 58% 11 3
Mississippi 3704 3133 6837 54% 8 3
Arkansas 4049 2508 6557 62% 9 2
South Carolina 4074 3067 7141 57% 2 2
Mississippi State 4133 2965 7098 58% 7 0
Vanderbilt 3908 3200 7108 55% 4 0

Just to explain, I first sorted by national title > SEC titles > winning percent > total wins.

Alabama is the clear winner here, sorry fellow SEC'ers. 'Bama has more total wins, the highest winning percentage, more national titles and more SEC titles. Yes, this primarily comes from football, but Alabama is also near the top 1/4 of every sport and isn't at the bottom in any category. We aren't going to start throwing out sports just cause it may or may not inflate one teams ranking.

Kentucky and LSU battle it out for 2nd place and I'm inclined here to give the nod to LSU. However, it's hard to minimize Kentucky's dominance in basketball. But again, LSU owns baseball. That's a toss up.

I was surprised to see Mississippi St so low on the final list. I figured with their "rich" SEC history, they'd have more SEC titles and at least one national title... Poor Vandy though...
