    For the entire time since they took all sports stats bro, not just since 93, but when it was still the Sears deal.

    I'm pretty sure that Buckyle's link is correct. Given which, I have no idea what your gatorcountry cohorts meant by "UCLA did not finish in the top ten in the Director's cup for the first time in 26 years", in reference to an award that's 16 years old. Typo, maybe.

    It was pretty easy to learn that Stanford finished #2 the first year, and has won it every year since. But don't let the facts, or your unwillingness to do some simple reseach, get in the way of pimping Florida on BP.

    But since it's really all about the SEC, I'm sure you're pleased that Georgia Bulldog Courtney Kupets recently won the Honda-Broderick award as best female athlete in the NCAA. :wink2:

    If you wanted to be really generous, you could say maybe he was including the National Collegiate All-Sports Championship, which was sort of the predecessor to the Sears/Director's Cup, although it was only run by the Knoxville Journal. Problem there is, UF didn't finish in the top ten of that every year.

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Batman! With all that fail going on, how did TSUN get to #2?

    It takes a special kind of sick fuck to even come across a picture of that magnitude. I'm impressed.

    They did since the 83-83 year, so they do have 26 straight top ten finishes. And this Florida Wiki page says that Stanford can't match that. So if that's correct, I apologize to Mr Ubet for my earlier 'pimping' comment. It wasn't accurate to say that Florida is the only one always in the Top ten in the history of the Director's Cup, since that only started in '93, but counting the earlier 'All-sports' championship apparently gives them the longest current streak.

    I have no idea what award they're talking about there, then. It's not the National Collegiate All-Sports Championship, which UF finished 21st in 1987, for example. Apparently, prior to the Director's Cup, "All-Sport Championships" were kind of like national football championships were in the '30's, with 5 different schools claiming a "championship" every year. At any rate, the original claim, as stated, was demonstrably incorrect.
