    Nuts. Had higher hopes than 12th. Thanks Ord, appreciate the work. Maybe we could admit Stanford to the B10? Go Bucks! Really enjoy seeing all the B10ers ahead of the SECers…..

    We choked in softball and baseball, and under-performed in Gymnastics and volleyball, also usually late strengths for us. Skunk bears slipped in ahead of us. It was the Gators' 11th straight top-5 finish. We'll see if the TSUN can sniff a CWS again. Dynasty or flash in the pan? I see some southern school with better weather and facilities taking their coach, frankly.

    Still, tOSU and UF remain among the elite athletic programs every year.

    STREAK SNAPPED
    If you're under the age of 27, you have not been alive for a time when Stanford didn't win the Director's Cup, an award that crowns the nation's top-performing athletic department.

    The Cardinal have claimed the cup for absurd 25-straight times, but that streak has finally been snapped.

    Perhaps the longest 'win' streak in sports.....

    The final winter sports have been completed and, with the addition of men’s and women’s gymnastics’ team points from NCAA championship competition, the Ohio State Department of Athletics continues its fine 2022-23 athletics season by holding on to third place in the LEARFIELD Directors’ Cup standings.

    Great stuff. Congrats to all tOSU teams that scored points. Now to figure out how to include synchro swimming in these results. If we had a decent baseball coach, maybe top two?

    This one (i.e. 25 wins in a row) is impressive too:

    BUCKEYES FINISH FOURTH IN FINAL LEARFIELD DIRECTOR’S CUP STANDINGS

    The Ohio State Department of Athletics concluded the 2021-22 academic year with yet another top-five finish in the LEARFIELD Director’s Cup standings. The Buckeyes finished in fourth place with 1,184.5 points.

Stanford was second with 1279.25 total points and Michigan finished third (1,195.25 points). After Ohio State, Florida rounded out the top five (1,130.75 points).

    Well, if USC gets points for beach volleyball, then synchro swim should be included as well. Not every school has a beach, but purtener every school has a pool.....
