USC ranked 48th

The final standings for the year for the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics were announced this past week.

We came in at 48, our lowest rank ever. They have been ranking the 279 athletic departments since 1993.This is our lowest rank since 1993, but in such a down year for Gamecock athletics, to still be in the top 50 is not as bad as some would make it out to be.

Here is a analysis of Clemson vs USC to get an idea of how the two programs stack up:

SC vs CU

1993 - USC 40 CU 16
1994 - USC 44 CU 51
1995 - USC 42 CU 27
1996 - USC 33 CU 51
1997 - USC 33 CU 25
1998 - USC 27 CU 28
1999 - USC 32 CU38
2000 - USC 25 CU34
2001 - USC 11 CU26
2002 - USC 18 CU26
2003 - USC 34 CU42
2004 - USC 34 CU52
2005 - USC43 CU39
2006 -USC 32 CU36
2007 -USC 48 CU43
Our average finish is 33rd and Clemson's is 36th.
