The Directors' Cup -- the system ranking college athletic departments based on their success across all sports that Stanford wins literally every year -- announced that this season's winner was determined. Unsurprisingly, it's Stanford.
The results had some surprises, though, because Florida finishing just 41.5 points behind Stanford -- a second-place effort was the closest in the history of the competition.
The Cardinal have now won 19 consecutive cups (props to North Carolina on winning the inaugural 1993-1994 edition while Stanford finished second) and will finish first in the final standings, regardless of the outcome of the ongoing College World Series.
Stanford's women's tennis championship and the fact that they finished well in the majority of their 24 sports led to the Cup victory. They didn't need to finish perfect in all 24 sports, however, as only the 20 best count toward the Directors' Cup.
The current standings for the top 10 are listed below, but they're likely going to change as North Carolina and UCLA still have active teams in the College World Series:
1. Stanford, 1261.25 points
2. Florida, 1219.75
3. Michigan, 1138.25 points
4. UCLA, 1127.25
5. Penn State, 1100 points
6. Texas A&M, 1081.5 points
7. Notre Dame, 1015.5 points
8. Oklahoma, 1014.25 points
9. Georgia, 1006.75 points
10 North Carolina, 992.33 points
Looking at that, this year's power conference champions are North Carolina (ACC), Notre Dame (Big East), Oklahoma (Big 12), Michigan (Big 10), Stanford (Pac-12) and Florida (SEC).

We get that this supposed to honor smaller, non-revenue sports as much as the big boys (and that's the point), but Louisville -- men's basketball national champions, women's basketball runners-up, baseball team in the College World Series, football team that won the Sugar Bowl and finished the year ranked No. 13 -- is currently seriously only in 41st place? Got it.
