1. Florida (1281)
2. Stanford (1206.75)
3. FSU (1061)

I have never bothered to look but what sports is it that Stanford excels at that put them on top every year?
Rowing, fencing, synchronized swimming
synchonrized swimming -- growing up in Sanford it was called water ballet.
You guys need to read my Thoughts of the Day more closely. Here's what I wrote about UF finishing No. 2 last Friday:
" . . . But considering the Cardinal sponsor 36 NCAA sports to Florida’s 21, and only the top 10 finishes on the men’s and women’s side are counted, it’s an advantage the Gators may never have the chance to overcome. Forget that the Cardinal received 100 points for their national championship in women’s water polo, 60 points for a 10th-place finish in fencing, 25 points for finishing ninth in women’s field hockey, 73 points for a fifth-place finish in men’s gymnastics and 58.5 points for a 10th-place finish in wrestling – all sports UF does not sponsor – and were able to drop a 24th-place finish in women’s golf, 17th-place in softball and ninth-place in women’s rowing, the Gators don’t even have 10 men’s sports (they have nine) and consequently can only drop the results in two women’s sports. On a per sport basis, Florida clearly out-pointed every school in the nation, but that’s not how it works, so the Gators will have to be satisfied with simply their best finish ever. So number two may be considered the new number one in this race . . ."
There is no synchronized swimming in the NCAA
You forgot men's gymnastics, sailing, mens soccer, men's volleyball, wrestling, field hockey and squash. These are all sports with significantly fewer competitors that are easier to get a top 10 finish in.
There is no sailing and no squash. Let's not go too overboard.
How about croshay? Is there croshay?
Those sports are listed on their official athletics website.
