My soccer knowledge is limited. I'll admit the Messi placement was driven largely by so many people telling me he's the GOAT far and away.

For what it's worth, I don't think you can be the athlete of the decade by playing soccer anyway

odd thing to say about the most popular sport in the world!

I'd almost get it if you were judging it by pure physicality, but then you wouldn't be picking LeBron either so idgi
And if you don't know, now you know.

Best College Sports Team of the 2010s: UConn Huskies Women's Basketball
Runner Up: Alabama Crimson Tide Football

Of the dozen or so categories I'll be presenting, this one was literally the hardest to decide between the winner and the runner up. No other major collegiate athletics programs even come close to touching these two in terms of dominance for the decade. And it's hard to imagine any other team will for many years to come.

There are a few factors at play in this one. On one hand, I think it's uncontroversial to state that it's much harder to win a college men's football game than to win a women's college basketball game. The physicality, the competition, and the stakes are just so much higher in the former. That's what makes Alabama's series of annihilation throughout the course of the decade (4 national titles and 10 solid years of being in the running) so impressive. But it's also what makes the UConn Lady Huskies' decade so f***ing astounding as well.

It goes without saying that women's basketball is a little different than Alabama football. However, those differences and the success this team had in spite of them is why I am awarding them the Team of the Decade title. Alabama made millions and millions of dollars from their sports program. They enlisted dozens of the best recruiters to snatch up the best football players in the country, year after year, and their success only made them an even bigger juggernaut. UConn, on the other hand, doesn't exactly live and die by the success of their women's basketball team. Athletes are scouted, sure, but there isn't an entire industry made out of it. And because of that, many of the best female basketball players go to school based on where they want to go to school--not based on where they want to play. In short, UConn murdered everyone not because the best talent was drawn to them, but because their program was that unparalleled.

A few quick stats from this team in the 2010s:
-5 NCAA tournament championships
-4 consecutive titles
-4 undefeated seasons
-111-game winning streak, which is the longest winning streak of any college sports team in the history of college sports

We will not see anything like this again.

Stupid trivia:

The trinity college squash team has that last record with 252 consecutive wins, if you count it

You did indeed stab me in the back. However, you are only level one, whilst I am level 50. That means I should remain uninjured.
