How so? The only conference with better ranked teams in NCAA basketball right now is the Big 10. But the Big 10 hasn't won a national championship since Michigan State in 2000. The ACC has won five since then. The Big East and SEC each have won three, but one of those Big East winners (Syracuse) is jumping ship to the ACC.

Current AP basketball rankings:
#5 Duke
#6 Syracuse (joining)
#9 UNC
#16 NC State
ARV - Pitt (joining)
ARV - Notre Dame (joining)
ARV - Maryland (leaving)

Current Soccer rankings:
#2 UMD (leaving)
#3 Notre Dame (joining)
#5 UNC
#14 Wake Forest
ARV - UVA

End of last season lacrosse rankings:
#2 UMD (leaving)
#3 Notre Dame (joining)
#4 Duke
#5 UVA
#11 UNC
#14 Syracuse (joining)

End of last season baseball rankings:
#3 FSU
#5 UNC
#15 UVA
#16 NC State
#21 Miami
#24 Georgia Tech

It's a strong all-around conference. Just because it gets knocked around in football doesn't mean the other sports are weak.
