Florida, Stanford Named Most Successful Athletic Programs Of Past 25 Years

By Barry Janoff

August 8, 2017: College athletes generally believe that their university is the best ever.

A new study might support the beliefs of some and disavow those of others.

The best Div. I college sports program over the past 25 years is Florida-Gainesville, followed by Stanford, UCLA, Connecticut (Storrs) and North Carolina (Chapel Hill), according to "The 30 Most Successful College Sports Programs" from BestCollegeReviews.org.

According to the editors, the ranking "is intended to inform and inspire student-athletes."

To determine the base ranking of the sports programs, Best College Reviews said it "referred to data gleaned from the Capital One Cup, which measures colleges' achievements in multiple sports. Data were analyzed for the number of NCAA championship finals that each college has both reached going back to 1992."

The basic equation method: Base Ranking + Championship Ranking = Overall Ranking.

Although a variety of sports were included in the equation, the following Div. I sports were given priority: Men's Football, Men's and Women’s Basketball, Men's Baseball and Women's Softball.

So the University of Minnesota, for example, whose men’s and women’s hockey teams have won nine national titles since 2000, is not on the list.

In addition, major incidents involving student athletes and/or coaches were not factored and did not detract from the equation, such as the situations with Penn State and Baylor, as well as problems encountered by numerous Florida Gators athletes over the course of several years.

Florida took the top spot for its plethora of titles and sports achievements.

According to BestCollegeReviews.org, "The University of Florida Gators made yet more history when they clinched all three Southeastern Conference All-Sports titles of the 2016-17 season. This feat is something that has never been achieved by any other school in the conference’s history — and yet, incredibly, it was the 16th time that the Gators have managed to triumph.

"Moreover, those new trophies helped take the Gators’ total league titles to an astonishing 234 — a tally that beats all of their Southeastern Conference rivals. University of Florida athletes have done exceptionally well when it comes to NCAA team championships, too, with 30 such trophies won during the Gators’ history, including two for the men’s basketball team, three for the football team and seven for the women’s tennis team."

Stanford place second, according to the report driven by its 23 consecutive wins of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Learfield Directors Cup, presented annually to the university in the  U.S. with the most success in collegiate athletics.

"Stanford stands alone. Indeed, the California college’s peerless 23 consecutive wins of the prestigious trophy may be a feat that no other school will match. And as that record suggests, Cardinal athletes are no strangers to sporting success.

"For example, 2017 NCAA championship triumphs came for Stanford’s women’s water polo team and the women’s swimming and diving team . . . 30 Cardinal (student-athletes) made it to Rio 2016 (Summer Olympics) — the largest number from any U.S. university."

In addition, Stanford has won ten national women’s tennis titles since 1997. although that was not mentioned in the summary of the University’s achievements.

At No. 3, while acknowledging the university’s success in producing football and basketball who went on to outstanding pro careers, “Many other varsity teams have helped take UCLA to 113 NCAA championship titles. In 2015, for example, the men’s water polo team clinched their tenth championship win, while nine years prior the men’s volleyball team established themselves as top UCLA athletes by earning their 19th NCAA national title."

"Stanford stands alone. Indeed, 23 consecutive wins of the Learfield Directors Cup may be a feat that no other school will match."

Connecticut was No. 4 largely due to the overwhelming success of its women’s hoops program.

“With a remarkable 11 NCAA championship titles to their name, the University of Connecticut’s women’s basketball team has dominated the varsity sport for much of the past 25 years. To date, they have also appeared in the Final Four 18 times and have broken records left, right and center. The only women’s team in Division I to have won NCAA titles four years in a row, Connecticut furthermore racked up an astonishing 111-game winning streak from 2014 to 2017. “

Michael Jordan’s school, UNC, rounded out the Top Five, but not just for hoops.

"After their narrow defeat at the hands of the Villanova Wildcats in 2016, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s men’s basketball team claimed their sixth NCAA Tournament trophy the following year — adding to 2016’s ACC Tournament crown," per the study.

"But, while legendary alumnus Michael Jordan is undoubtedly proud, the Tar Heels’ sporting successes aren’t limited to just the basketball court. Most notably, the college’s women’s soccer team have brought an incredible 21 NCAA championship titles back to Chapel Hill since 1982, with nine of those won over consecutive years. The men’s lacrosse team are also in excellent form, having clinched an NCAA title in 2016."
