Maryland, Championships, and the B1G (Summer '22 Update)


Last year I published a Fanpost about how Maryland compares to other Big Ten schools in terms of Championships (both conference and National) since joining the conference. After the 21-22 school year, the lists look mostly the same near Maryland (that is, near the top). Some noteworthy changes from last year include:

  • Northwestern has joined the ranks of B1G Teams to have won a team National Championship since 2014-2015 after clinching the Natty in Field Hockey.
  • Michigan became the 4th team to win the B1G Football Championship in that span. In case you haven't been paying attention, yes, all 4 are in the B1G East.
  • Rutgers finally earned their first conference championship when they were crowned the regular season champs in Women's Soccer.
Here is the updated list of Big Ten schools with national championships in any sport since the 2014-2015 academic year, and how many they've won (the list of the sports/years they won is at the end).

1) Penn State (7)
T2) Maryland (6)
T2) Ohio State (6)
4) Nebraska (4)
5) Wisconsin (3)
6) Minnesota (2)
T7) Iowa (1)
T7) Michigan (1)
T7) Michigan State (1)
T7) Northwestern (1)

Next is the list of B1G Championships, but first, some notes; I counted them as the B1G counts them. If you finish the regular season in first place (or win the football championship game), you're the champion. Even if you tie for first, you get credit for a whole championship. Tournament Winners are not Conference Champions. I did not include affiliate teams (though Notre Dame won Men's Ice Hockey once, and Johns Hopkins won Men's Lacrosse once). Now that that's been covered, here's the list of B1G Championships by school (as with the NCs, the lists of which sports and which years is at the end)

1) Ohio State (48)
2) Michigan (42)
3) Maryland (27)
T4) Penn State (18)
T4) Minnesota (18)
6) Wisconsin (16)
7) Iowa (13)
T8) Illinois (12)
T8) Indiana (12)
10) Michigan State (11)
11) Nebraska (8)
12) Northwestern (7)
13) Purdue (3)
14) Rutgers (1)

Here's how the schools breakdown when looking at the number of sports in which they've claimed at least one B1G Championship:

T1) Ohio State (17)
T1) Michigan (17)
3) Minnesota (11)
4) Penn State (9)
T5) Iowa (7)
T5) Maryland (7)
T7) Indiana (6)
T7) Northwestern (6)
T9) Illinois (5)
T9) Michigan State (5)
T9) Nebraska (5)
T9) Wisconsin (5)
13) Purdue (2)
14) Rutgers (1)

For the "Football is all that matters" crowd, here are the standings there:

1) Ohio State (5)
T2) Michigan (1)
T2) Michigan State (1)
T2) Penn State (1)
T5) everyone else (0)

And I'll add Men's Basketball, since that's the other sport people tend to care most about.

T1) Michigan State (3)
T1) Wisconsin (3)
3) Purdue (2)
T4) Illinois (1)
T4) Indiana (1)
T4) Maryland (1)
T4) Michigan (1)
T8) everyone else (0)
