Director's Cup

Slightly off-topic, but I wanted to get my $0.02 in here.

Rivals.com has an interesting breakdown of the major conference's overall performance in the "Directors Cup" which is sort of a championship awarded to the best overall athletic departments in any given year.  It factors in a school's performance not only in the money sports but the eentsie teensy wittle bitty ones as well.

Its a cool concept but I think the scoring method to date has been dubious but thats for another day.

Where I quibble today is the author's contention of who are the Big Five sports.  He lists football, men's and women's basketball, baseball and softball.  Its just me but I'd either 1)remove softball or 2)keep softball but add men's and women's volleyball and women's soccer as well as men's and women's outdoor track and/or 3)tier this sucker, Tier I of high value being football, baseball, track and men's and women's basketball and Tier II being the others named.  Everything after that would be Tier III.

I realize track isn't what it used to be but its still a tremendous sport with a rich collegiate history and continued prominence, one that pulls in many football players, basketball players and athletes in other sports when they're not bound by a commitment to their team.

Sponsors aren't going to fork over anywhere near as much money if they risk getting saddled with games involving non-lucrative teams. This is the market at work
