That is fantastic!!!!! :o ;D 8-)

Owldaylong, here is another one to add to the list of who is one step ahead of who.

We are # 4 behind the big 3. Miami is not that far ahead. We went from 123 to 79 in one year. That has to be from the huge success of the women's programs this year. They had a great year.

# 79 out of 326 colleges. Only 25 years participating inter collegiately.

This shows the commitment to these programs to make them succeed. Now if someone can get the BOT to further enhance the programs success, they can approve some sort of stadium so football and possibly basketball can succeed as well.

I'm as proud as the next Owl about the ranking and I very much appreciate the progress we've made in such a short time. But before we get big heads let's not forget that we won those 5 conference titles which gave us this ranking in the tiny A-Sun…not C-USA like Central Florida, not Big East like USF and not Sun Belt like FIU. Winning 5 A-Sun conference titles against Belmont, Campbell, Gardner-Webb, Lipscomb, Mercer, Jacksonville and Stetson is just a wee bit easier than winning 5 titles in the Big East IMHO. Let's see where we rank after our 1st year in the Belt.

As a side not, the fact that Miami, Florida and Florida State were ranked ahead of us while competing in the amazingly competitive SEC and ACC evidences just how far ahead of the other D-1 schools in Florida they really are.

It's nice to get a bit of good news every now and then. We are so used to complaining about the Dome progress (or lack thereof) that sometimes we lose sight of how good our programs are, all things considered.
