    Really amazing.

    2 in football
    2 in basketball
    2 in gymnastics
    5 in track
    2 in tennis
    1 in women's swimming and diving.

    And the year isn't even over yet, we have legitimate shots in several more sports.

    We now have 32 Natty's:
    30 NCAA's
    2 AIAW's

    Anyone know how this stacks up to the rest of the SEC?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NCAA_schools_with_the_most_Division_I_national_championships

    From Wiki--but something like this is probably fairly accurate. It includes AIAW and other titles as well.

    Simple answer to the question would be 4th. Arky has a ton of titles in track and CC. uga has several (10 maybe) women's gymnastics.

    UCLA 130
    USC 119
    Stanford 116
    Yale 97
    Princeton 79
    Cornell 78
    PSU 77
    Navy 72
    Ohio State 60
    Michigan 56
    Harvard 56
    Arizona State 55
    Penn 52
    Oklahoma State 51
    Texas 51
    Wisconsin 50
    California 49
    LSU 47
    Washington 45
    Arkansas 43
    North Carolina 41
    Maryland 40
    NYU 37
    Columbia 35
    Michigan State 34
    Georgia 34
    Denver 31
    Army 31
    Iowa 31
    Florida 31
    Nebraska 29

    It includes championships won by schools in one of the 26 sports that are (or were) sponsored by the NCAA or AIAW, during years competitive championships were organized by other bodies. These 26 sports are: women's badminton; baseball; basketball; women's bowling; boxing; cross country; fencing; field hockey; golf; gymnastics; ice hockey; lacrosse; indoor rifle; outdoor rifle; women's rowing; skiing; soccer; softball; swimming; women's synchronized swimming; tennis; indoor track; outdoor track; men's trampoline; volleyball; water polo; and wrestling. Finally, the "Other Team Titles" column also includes championships won in three other sports: men's rowing (1871–present), which has voluntarily remained outside NCAA sponsorship, and two NCAA "emerging sports" that organize championships: women's equestrian (2002–present) and women's sand volleyball (2007–present).

    As more specifically detailed on the table of sports, below, the "Other Team Titles" column includes: (i) historic non-NCAA tournament titles compiled here, (ii) non-AIAW women's championships listed here, (iii) overall women's equestrian championships, (iv) Wingate lacrosse championships, (v) pre-NCAA golf championships; (vi) pre-NCAA swimming championships; and (vii) ISFA soccer championships.

    I know LSU and Arkansas have more, but they are limited to a few sports. For example, Arkansas has 43 national titles but of that number, 41 are from either indoor track, outdoor track or cross country. Their only other program titles are one in football and one in basketball. LSU is a little more diversified, but still of their 46 titles, 31 are from indoor or outdoor track.

    We have fewer titles, but we have won national titles in 12 of the 21 sports we compete in. That is pretty impressive, not to mention you have to figure sooner or later we are going to break through and get our first in baseball, softball and lacrosse.

    Thanks Iowa....but I think we've earned 32 now with our recent gymnastics win.
    Anyone else here think we should have more overall titles than either LSU, the poodles or Maryland?
    At the very least we should develop our women's sports teams further (swimming, tennis, soccer, volleyball).
    There was a time when we owned the swimming pool....but now Georgia & Auburn seem to own them instead.
    And the total number of wins that UCLA, USC & Stanford have collectively is just ridiculous to consider.

    Yes, 32 is correct. I simply took what was there rather than trying to add it any missing titles for anyone.

    Included in Maryland's total are 26 titles in sports we don't compete in [11 for men's lacrosse, 3 for men's soccer, 8 for women's field hockey and 4 for rifle], plus they have another 10 in women's lacrosse, 9 of which they won before we stared the sport. Maryland counts 5 for competitive cheerleading as well.

    But hopefully we pass UGA by soon, LSU and Arkansas might take a little time.

    This is one of those how do you want to present it tricks. What year do you start? What sports should we count?

    For example:
    UCONN isn't even on that list. but they have won 10 Basketball National Championships alone since 2000.

    Any way you slice it, the Gators have one of the best programs in all of college sports...

    14 national championships since 2006...... 1 more than FSU has in the entire history of their athletic program. It amazes me how some people wake up in the morning, put on their ketchup and mustard colored t shirts, and claim FSU has a better sports program than UF. Sick people i tell ya!!

    Exactly!!! It is all in how you slice and dice the numbers. My preference would be to include only the sports in which we field teams. If we did that we would be pretty high up the list--but still behind Arky and LSU. Iowa has 31 titles==23 in wrestling and 5 in rifle! I would imagine Princeton, Yale, Cornell etc all have titles in some obscure sports or they are national titles in football from the OLD OLD days of leather helmets! Unfortunately I did not find an easy to use list that would allow you to count only certain sports.

    As you said--we are at the TOP of the game! Every year in the top 10 of Director's Cup! This year will be the same--when the new standings come out this week we will be top 5!! at the end of winter sports.

    No matter how you slice it, the numbers UCLA, USC and Stanford have put up are astonishing.

    UCLA has notched all but five of them in the past 50 years.... they are averaging 2.5 national championships per year since the 60s.

    Crazy.

    I agree, but you also have to consider different eras, rules, etc. I think somewhere around 2000 and on is a good reference for now.

    Could also expand to 1990 and beyond or show how strong some of these teams where in the past like 1950-2000.

    Since 2000 (manual count on the Wikipedia page), UCLA has 31 national championships. Still averaging more than two per year.

    Stanford has 33 national championships since 2000.... although five of them are in Synchronized Swimming. I have a hard time counting those, but if the NCAA counts them, I guess we ought to.

    Gators have 16 national championships since 2000. I think that's pretty impressive, but it's half what those programs have produced.
