further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
The final 2012-2013 NACDA Directors' Cup standings were released today. Link? LINK
Stanford is the winner (only their 19th straight).
Florida jumped us for 2nd place.
Michigan is 3rd, followed by UCLA then Penn State.
Two out of the Top 5 are Big-10; not bad.
Michigan has finished in the Top 3 in 3 of the last 10 years, Top 5 in 6 of the last 10 years, and Top 10 in 8 of the last 10 years ('09-'10, and '10-'11 are the bad years).
And I say it's sort of the final standings, because the CWS is still going on. Even if UCLA wins, apparently it won't be enough to pass Stanford. I'm still rooting for IU, FWIW. UCLA may be able to pass us if the win the CWS...I'm not sure on it though. So we may be looking at a 4th place finish.
Also, in Division 2 news, GVSU lost to Grand Canyon (AZ) in back to back years, after winning it in 8 straight years. GVSU has placed 1st or 2nd in 12 straight years.
