Points expected.                                                                     Reality

200 m Micaiah Harris - 10 pts (1st place)                              4th place - 5 pts

400 m  Jonathan Jones - 8 pts (2nd place)                           4th place - 5 pts

800 m Yusuf Bizimana  - 0 pts (9th place)                             9th place - 0 pts

4x100 m Relay team - 0 pts (9th place)                                  6th place - 3 pts

4x400 m Relay Team - 6 pts (3rd place)                                4th place - 5 pts

                TOTAL:        24 pts                                                                        18 pts 

 

So instead of 44 total pts, Texas scores 38. Meanwhile, Florida goes wild and scores 54 pts. Texas ends in 2nd

Florida on the other hand had a much better than expected finish to win the national championship. Texas stumbled a little bit but honestly, with how good Florida finished Texas was likely to be 2nd even if they hit their marks.

400 m - 3rd and 10th ranked - 6 pts                                                         2nd and 5th - 12 pts

4x100 and 4x400 both ranked #1 - 20 pt                                                 2nd and 1st - 18 pts

Lots of the credit goes to the Ladies.

The women will end up tied with Stanford for the Capital one cup. 

This is very impressive because the capital one cup gives three times the points for finishes in 7 women's sports and Texas only competes in 4 of those (Stanford all 7).

The other 14 women's sports that are included, Texas competes in 7, Stanford 10.

On the Men's side, we compete in 3/7 of the triple scoring sports and 6/13 of the regular sports. Even in our best seasons, that is hard to overcome.

So I'm assuming that the capital One Cup different than the Director's Cup? I ask because it shows Stanford winning both the men and women's last year which would make them the overall winner. Why do some sports (which ones are they) count as "triple" and others don't?

Yep, it's different. Similar idea but different formula. I think the idea behind having tier A and Tier B sports is to emphasize the sports that are more popular overall (football, basketball, baseball for example) and giving more points for them.

On the men's side, Texas would need very high finishes in baseball, football and basketball in order to have a chance.
