      Stanford and UNC women's soccer would have a shot but they are both jock factories. (Tennessee women's hoops and Iowa wrestling have the same problem).
      I suppose it depends on the definition of what makes the sport #1 at the school.

      If money is a metric, then we can probably start with the schools that don't have football and play in a minor conference. Maybe a school like Portland? They've won a bunch of women's soccer national titles, and I can't think of any success in men's sports.

          I’d probably say:
          1. Football
          2. Men’s Basketball
          3. Women’s Basketball/Volleyball/Soccer (depends on the school)

          Outside of basketball and football, men’s sports are a crapshoot because it depends on what men’s sports that school actually has.

            Are we talking about student interest or money? Either way, I think football is probably still #1 in a lot of places you wouldn't even think, just given its power over entertainment and society. Football hasn't done squat at Cornell in decades, but as you mention it might still rake in more donations because of the pre-1970 history. I think there's some other state that a football stadium is the largest stadium/arena in 48 of 50 states (I want to say the other 2 are Alaska and Vermont), partly because it requires more seats, but partly because in places where you wouldn't think people care about football, they still do. Football controls the eyes and money everywhere unless there's a strong force saying otherwise.

                  There are schools where (local color) moves to 2 or even 1. At UMBC #1 is, and I swear I'm not making this up, Chess.

                  My impression is the schools where #1 is Hockey are: SLU, Clarkson, RPI, maybe Cornell (Football is weirdly still big among the Rich Olds), BU (I... guess?), maybe Maine (never quite sure where football is there), maybe Vermont (never quite sure where basketball is for them) and for the West, I dunno, CC? Denver? The UP schools?

                  Baseball is #1 at some schools in the southwestern belt -- Wichita State, Cal State Fullerton maybe? Problem for Baseball is it overlaps with Factory Football Schools (Pac Ten, SWC, SEC).

                      I wasn't thinking about donations. Concussionball will always be the biggest in donations because of the Football --> Business --> Rich Shmuck conveyor belt that ends in huge "gifts" (c.f. religious charities, police funds, conservative think tanks, and other authoritarian expressions of prestige).

                      I remember talking to a "development" (i.e., begging) professional about 15 years ago and asking when those 1940's Olds would finally start dying so hockey would become the #1 Cornell legacy donation and he kinda laughed and said, "Never -- the kind of person who makes huge public donations will always be for football. He's That Guy." I suppose we might have the occasional finance twatwaffle who does it for Lax.

                      I wasn't really thinking about just student interest, either, or I'd have had no problem ranking men's hockey #1 at Cornell (women's hockey is probably of higher student interest than football at this point, or at any rate it should be).

                      I was thinking about the undefinable sense of what the most "important" sport is at the school -- the very thing that is so weird about Cornell football still hanging on like a malignant tumor despite its half century of utter uselessness and hockey's qualitative superiority on every metric.

                              Yep. Congratulations to the blue states on this map. Everybody else sucks.

                              I retract everything I've said about the Dakotas. Not Mass though -- they're still losers.

                              • If it’s a plastic surgeon in NV, I’m guessing it’s a pioneer in a field like sexual realignment (reassignment didn’t sound great to me and I have no idea what the correct medical term is now). Otherwise I can’t imagine a plastic surgeon being on staff at most universities especially not at the highest paid position.

                                I vaguely recall Minnesota was a pioneer in “reassignment” in the early days, but I might be thinking of some other major surgery. Heart transplant? I have no idea.
