I’d even argue in favor of #3.
Who’s #3 behind UCLA and USC?
This wasn't even close until about 15 years ago. LBSU was way more successful across the board. However, now it isn't even close the other way. SDSU is arguably the 4th best sports program in the state of California at this point.
SDSU will be P5 soon. They are committed to facilities and budget.
We could still find sustained success , and basketball could be top 50-75 type program , but SDSU is moving forward past our overall cache. Most our other sports are competitive or better than SDSU but football, basketball, and community engagement is what matters most.
I would probably agree that overall our athletic success is stronger than SDSU's. In basketball we will never reach their level as they have football which generates much more than we ever will. Other factors are in place also in San Diego that will never be approached in LB.
