    DOWN GOES STANFORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




    LOL! :D :D :D :D :D :D

  2. take this bracket!
  3. Not at all surprised to see the Pac 10 do so poorly.

    When you have the best team in college football in the Pac 10, Southern Cal, basketball takes a back seat.

    Even at their peak, UCLA basketball was never as popular as SC football.

    We have had so many Pac 10 national basketball champions, 2 in the past 10 years, that a down year or two is meaningless.
  4. There is no doubt that the Pac-10 was very weak this year.

    This was nothing new. It was also nothing new that Stanford frequently let teams "back into" games in the second half, only to dispose of them in the last 2-3 minutes . . . Unfortunately for the Cardinal, they got way too complacent with a pretty decent team.

    As far as Division 1 Intercollegiate Sports Programs are concerned, there is no doubt that Stanford is #1.

    They created an endowment for the intercollegiate sports program that is the envy of the entire Nation ( and I am a CAL grad saying this! ). Not one penny comes from the University to support 33 D-1 teams . . . not one penny!

    I mean, we are talking about a freaking athletic machine here what with nine consecutive Sears Director's Cups! And this isn't coming from some hayseed football school like Nebraska or Texas that only fields HALF the D-1 teams that Stanford does!
  5. I'm just curious.
    What big time D-1 sports college did you graduate from?

    University of Florida baby!

    Go Gators!

    Florida ain't doing too bad either. Florida ranks in top 10 in football, basketball, track, soccer, baseball, swimming, golf, gymnastics almost every year. One of the best athletic departments in the nation.

    And Waggie, you have not been to a football game until you have been to the Swamp in november when 86,000 people pack the stadium to see Florida State and Florida duke it out. There really are no comparable experiences in life. And watching Florida and Kentucky in basketball is a close second.

    The University of Florida's intercollegiate athletic program pursues and achieves excellence across the whole spectrum of sports competition. A founding member of the Southeastern Conference, Florida finished first in the 2003 SEC All-Sports Trophy competition for the 12th consecutive season. For an unprecedented seventh time, Florida swept the SEC all-sport trophy titles (men's, women's and overall). Only Florida and UCLA have ranked among the nation's 10 best athletic programs in each of the last 20 years, according to national all-sports rankings (USA Today, Sears Directors' Cup and NACDA Directors' Cup).

    In 2002-03, UF placed a record 193 student athletes on the SEC Academic Honor Roll. The 2002-03 season marked the sixth consecutive year UF placed 100 or more student athletes on the SEC Honor Roll.

    Go Gators!!!!!!!!!:D :D :D :D

    Not really. LOL. There is not much competition in schools out west as far as athletics go. I mean seriously, west of Colorado and not including Texas, how many schools win national championships outside of USC, UCLA and Stanford. You have one major conference out there. From Kansas east on you have the Big 12, Big 10, SEC, ACC and Big East. All about numbers kid, all about numbers. :D
