Big 10
Pac 10
ACC
SEC
Big XII
Big East

Pac 10 #1 Granted its a bit top heavy, 4 in the top 16 is getting it done
1.  Stanford (3)
2.  Cal-Berkley ( 8 )
3.  UCLA (15)
4.  USC (16)
5.  Washington (28)
6.  Arizona (44)
7.  Arizona St. (51)
8.  Oregon (82)


Big Ten #2  Big 10 has the good US News rankings but I gave the edge to the Pac 10 as I am skeptical as some of their schools have low LSATs for their ranking (Iowa, Wisconsin, Ohio St) and a large drop between the middle and the bottom
1.  Michigan ( 8 )
2.  Northwestern (12)
3.  Minnesota (20)
4.  Iowa (24)
5.  Illinois (25)
6.  Wisconsin (31)
7.  Ohio State (31)
7.  Indiana (36)
9.  Penn St. (91)
10.  Michigan St.. (Tier 3)

ACC #3 Lacks the homerun hitters, but 6 in the top 36 is nothing to laugh at
1.  UVA (10)
2.  Duke (10)
3.  BC (28)
4.  UNC (36)
5.  UMD (36)
6.  Wake Forest (36)
7.  Florida State (53)
8.  Miami (80)

Big Ten, Pac 10, ACC...unfortunately for Big Ten fans, this is not the case for actual football

the acc has some good schools, but for football? are you kidding?


the acc is at most the best conference for basketball, but i can think of at least 4 football conferences better than the acc.

Let it be known that no one has migrated from the ACC since the early South Carolina left before the conference technically formed.

However, the best Law School football conference would probably be the Ivy League, if we're looking at technicalities.

Otherwise, Pac-10, Big 10, ACC, SEC

The SEC is sort of the darkhorse in this race... UGA, UF, Bama, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vandy, and LSU are all top 100, and 5 of those are Tier 1 schools. Ole Miss is a Tier 3.

I can has lauskul!

no team has migrated out of the acc... they just dont have any real good football squads. UVA is ok once and a while, BC is shown to be a fraud. the only team in the acc that is usually very good to great is VATech and they dont even have a law school. FSU and Miami were once good, but now they are decent teams at best.
the sec, pac 10, big 10, big 12, and the big east are better football conferences than the acc.

as for law schools, i would probably argue that the big ten or the pac 10 are probably the best.
