OK, so I linked to #Year of the Cardinal in another post, but it matters here. CBS Sports is running an article about which school had the best year in sports. Can there truly be any other? They are not just mimicking the Capital One thing, but weighting Football and Basketball accordingly. They have listed the schools 10 - 7 already. Wednesday they list 5 & 6 since there was a tie. Top 4 get listed Fri, Mon, Wed, and #1 on Fri the 19th.
Can there be any doubt? The criteria is FBS football, Men's basketball, women's basketball, baseball, and any other sport that reflects kindly on that school. 5 sports. We already have the best two sport total, with the NC and the women's Runner up. We made Omaha, even if we did not play well there. Football has to help out here, since we did finish in the Top 15, and they are counting the top 25.
So, which other sport do we include? Women's soccer with a top 8 finish? Swimming? This year just keeps giving us one blessing after another. This particular story will end July 19th, and the #Year of the Cardinal story also finishes up on the 19th. Coincidence? I think not.
