Penn State Finishes 19th in Director’s Cup

NACDA LogoPenn State Athletics finished 19th nationally in the 2008-2009 Director’s Cup standings for Division I programs. The final results were released yesterday by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics.

The Director’s Cup is awarded to the school whose athletic program is successful in all NCAA acknowledged sports, with equal weight placed on all sports. That means that Football and Men’s Basketball are equally as important as the sports that get less national coverage (Women’s Water Polo, for example). Each school may have up to 20 sports count towards their score (10 men’s and 10 women’s).

Penn State finished with a score of 813.10 points. Stanford, for the 15th-straight year, finished in first with 1455.00 points. Penn State finished fourth among Big Ten schools, behind Michigan (5th), Ohio State (10th), and Minnesota (14th). With the exception of Indiana (55th), all Big Ten teams finished in the top 50.

Grand Valley State (Mich.) took home the award for Division II schools, while Williams (Mass.) was the winner for Division III.

Three Words: For the Glory

When I sat back one night in January thinking about my time at Penn State, I tried to come up with a single word that would adequately describe my experiences here. As I attempted to determine what that magic word might be, my mind began to grasp the absurdity of that challenge. How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
