We all know that no school has doubled up with championship trophies in football and hoops in the same year, but no school has even turned the trick in a gap of less than eight years. Wendell Barnhouse of the Star-Telegram breaks it down:

NCAA Double Winners
School Football Basketball Gap
Michigan 1997 1989 8
Ohio State 1968 1960 8
Florida 1996 2006 10
UCLA 1954 1964 10
Stanford 1926 1942 16
Michigan State 1952 1979 27
Arkansas 1964 1994 30
California 1920 1959 39
Syracuse 1959 2003 44
Maryland 1953 2002 49

Of course, we respectfully disagree with his assessment that "The task for Ohio State is more difficult" when breaking down the two teams that have very real shots to accomplish this double feature this season, but we digress..
