Florida Second In National Directors’ Cup Race; Keep Getting Better

If it seems to you that the University of Florida athletic program is getting stronger and stronger each year… you’re right.

Florida has placed a school-record 14 teams in the top 10 nationally for 2009-2010.  In doing so, the Gators have locked themselves in for the #2 slot in this year’s Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings.  That’s UF’s highest finish ever, besting a second-place tie in 1997-98.

According to The Gainesville Sun, Florida is the only program in the nation to finish among the top 10 of the Directors’ Cup standings in each of the last 27 years.

Athletic director Jeremy Foley sees no signs of a let-up.

“Looking to be among the teams in the hunt at the end is the goal of all our student-athletes and coaches.  We are so fortunate that they compete so hard and represent the University of Florida so well.  We look forward to the future as the Gators continue to work toward more success.”

More success?  I’m sure fans across the SEC are happy to hear that.
