How is the GateHouse Media SEC All-Sports titles figured?
Points are awarded based on the number of competing teams in a sport (e.g. - 14 teams compete in SEC baseball, giving the winner 14 points, second gets 13, etc. Four teams compete in equestrian, awarding four points to the winner). A program's points total is divided by the total number of teams competing in the sports the school fields and that quotient ranks the teams in the final GateHouse Media standings. The sports of cross country, indoor and outdoor track & field are combined. A program's outdoor track finish makes up half, while the remaining two quarters are based on the cross country and indoor finishes.

About the SEC All-Sports Trophy:
This is the first year GateHouse Media, which owns The Gainesville Sun as well as dozens of other publications around the country, awards the overall, men's and women's SEC All-Sports trophies.

The past three were awarded by the Halifax Media Group. The New York Times Regional Newspaper Group gave the awards from the 1994-95 through 2010-11 seasons. Prior to that, the league tabulated the SEC All-Sports totals.

What's Next?
UF is hopeful of finishing among the nation's top 10 most successful overall athletic programs for the 32nd consecutive year when final national all-sports rankings<http://www.nacda.com/directorscup/nacda-directorscup-current-scoring.html> are released June 25 or 26.

    High-Five to Jeremy Foley. Apparently he won, himself, some sort of trophy. That’s truly wonderful. I may be a minority of one but when I think of Jeremy Foley I think of things like that last four years of ineptitude at Ben Hill Griffins Stadium. I think for Florida v. Georgia Southern, Gator linemen blocking each other in an open field, losses to Florida State, what might have been with Charles Strong as head coach in Gainesville, ESPN showing for perhaps the 100th time a Missouri DE blowing past our OT and dropping Tyler Murphy like a rug doll. Football is King in Gainesville. It is the King financially. It is the King emotionally. When I think of Jeremy Foley I think about how Mr. Foley’s poor judgment and enormous ego brought a once proud program to its knees. One day Jeremy Foley will be gone and, guess what, the UF will still exist.
