UAlbany in Final Sports Directors standings


Recommended Posts

Definitely something to be proud of. After the College World Series is over -- the last NCAA sports event of the academic year -- the Learfield Sports Directors Division 1 Final Standings are compiled, ranking athletic programs by success. It's not perfect, but it is something take seriously. Each school can offer 10 men's and 10 women's sports for consideration. This year's winner is Stanford (which is usually at or near the top of any kind of rankings of athletics success).


The rankings list 292 Division 1 programs. In those rankings, UAlbany finished . . . 113th! That's in the top 37%. The highest ranked non-BCS school is . . . Denver (?), at 43rd..


You can look at several categories of rankings here:




But you will notice in the rankings by conference that actually New Hampshire is first, ahead of UA . . . and I can't figure out why. The numbers shown don't help. Maybe their CAA football was considered, although NH remains placed in the AE group??


Still, I'll take it, 113th out of 292. Another aspect of McElroy's notable service here.

Fall standings


Winter standings


UNH's winter points came from women's gymnastics and skiing, fall points from football, women's volleyball, and field hockey.


Scoring is based on performance in NCAA (and FBS football) championships, not on regular-season or conference tournament play.

Thank you for clarifying this! No wonder the numbers didn't make sense . . . I only glanced at this -- from another fan board, for another school -- and the person who posted it there also assumed incorrectly it had something to do with more than just championships . . . so, I apologize to BPF board members for the misleading approach! Still, it's better to be 113th than 292nd, even for such a narrow context. Thanks again, UAalum72 . . .
