I mean our women's programs are yearly top five in cap on cup. The three main sports: football, basketball, and baseball we are top ten in each in the last polls of each sport. Is any other university competitng like ours in terms of all around athletic strength.

We are right at the top if not the best. Stanford, Texas, and Ohio State would probably be the only ones in the same category.
Best public sports university
We may as well be private. We pay our own way here!!
Lol I agree but we still are Public land grant institution, I saw the Lincoln commercial...
If you go by the Capital One Cup, yes, two years running in Men's, can close 2 years running in Womans.
Ovearll, taking all things into consideration, its Stanford and UF neck and neck each year.
Was just thinking its pretty awesome to be a gator right now. Basketball team looks great and is a possible title contender this year and may be even better next year. Football team also has outside title shot and next year returns most of the best defense in football(sorry but no team had faced this schedule and done so darn well on defense....rankings say Fsu...they play no one). Baseball team is on fire and any given night I can go watch swimming or track or gymnastics or tennis and know my team has a great chance of winning.
Most national titles by school:

I know that list. Doesn't mean anything now. If I cared about past titles princeton is better than nd and bama. I'm talking right now....recent history. My time here at school.
Woodens ucla titles mean nothing to me...I wasn't alive.
What about the last two decades? We have to be close to the top.
Winningest Program in College Football since 1990!
I always want to go through this and strip out titles won by dynasties (UCLA/Stanford water polo, UNC women's soccer, Arkansas track, etc.) to show that Florida's recent success is kinda staggering.

Negative!!! Darnit. I'm guessing that was some douche from another team..
Here if you want more recent this is probably up your alley, similar to the Capital One Cups but it is the Director's Cup. It started in '93-'94 and Florida is all up in that. Hard to beat Stanford and UCLA though.

Ohhh let's doooo it
ooorrrannngeeee and bluuueee it
Stanford and ucla have incredible womens programs. Most strong academic universities have good women teams. Yea since foley was hired uf has been a great sports program. He deserves so much credit.
What the hell does that have to do with who is the best overall University regarding atheletics right now????
Go to the History Thread, lol ;)
Holy jeez Stanford wins.
BTW, FYI, college football is NOT included on that list for FBS schools, not a sancationed NCAA title.
I wasn't showing it to knock UF, but only to provide a point of reference.
Your points are interesting. On the flip side, i doubt UCLA cares about UF's indoor track titles with its double-digit basketball banners.
Just keep in mind your list doesn't include FBS football. And UCLA has a great history, but most of us weren't around for it, but we were around to see UF beat UCLA for a recent basketball title.
Over the last 30 years its hard to argue that anyone is better atheletically than UF, and only maybe Stanford has been as good overall.
Stanford has been very good. People will say they have more sports than UF, but it's also a private school and far harder to get athletes into school than UF ... or just about anybody else.
Florida has been very good.
Gators have had an excellent all-around program for awhile. When football and hoops were down at times in the 1980s, it was still winning big elsewhere. It's quite an achievement, but most people don't really notice unless you win in football, basketball or MAYBE baseball. The masses still don't care about college baseball, but at least people in the South do.
Doesn't Stanford have like field hockey or equestrian or some shit as well? Kind of glad we don't have a team that involves people riding ponies and jumping over fences decorated with flowers, but that's just me.
So, are you saying if UF had those teams you wouldn't count the championships?
Actually intelligence is only a factor in major sports. Football, basketball, baseball players usually score lower than other athletes. In fact female athletes do better than other girls in school in a lot of cases. Stanford does incredibly well in female sports...and female athletes generally aren't the same as high profile male athletes. It's weird but it seems females may never have the fake idea sports is their way to success so school is just ss high a priority.
Maybe not equestrian, since that was the only sport at the Olympics I just couldn't make myself watch no matter what. Ping pong was more entertaining to me. Wouldn't mind field hockey or water polo, though. Those are just sports that have a smaller range of competition, since not as many schools have those kinds of programs.
Stanford has 35+ NCAA sanctioned sports.. UF only has 21 I believe.. Thats why we always finish second overall in total points for the directors cup.
UF is the best sports program in the nation overall and has been for a decade+ now. Texas/Ohio State are right there. These are really the only three who consistently have very good football and basketball programs. Texas and UF also have baseball, although their baseball program is much better than ours.
