Talk about Gator Domination: as of March 4, 2014, five athletic programs for the University of Florida are ranked No. 1 in the nation. Men’s basketball, men and women’s indoor track, men’s swimming and diving, and softball all top the polls. If the women’s gymnastics team didn’t have the audacity to be ranked – gasp – second, there would be a sixth at the summit.
Florida currently has 14 varsity sports in season, of which 12 are ranked in the polls. Only baseball (which slid out this week) and women’s basketball are unranked. To put this in perspective: 36% of the teams are ranked No. 1, 57% in the top-5, and 86% are ranked.
Who says Florida is just a football school? NACDA Directors’ Cup, here we come.
