GAINESVILLE -- Just wanted to pass something along this morning. The Birmingham News recently named Florida the Southeastern Conference's most successful athletics program of the league's first 75 years.
The rankings were based on a weighted formula, which awarded points for success and subtracted points for NCAA violations. Here's the link. CLICK ME! Florida is the only SEC school to compete in the College World Series, NCAA Tournament national title game and football national title game. Football, basketball and baseball, however, did not land Florida atop the SEC. The Gators' women's sports, which dominate the conference across the board, were the determining factors.
9. South Carolina
11. Ole Miss
12. Mississippi State
