Thanks to a prestigious 2020-2021 Texas Longhorns athletics season, the school has been awarded its first Learfield IMG College Directors’ Cup, the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics announced last week. It’s a big deal. Here’s why, per Texas Sports.

From Texas Sports: “Points are awarded based on each institution’s finish in NCAA Championships. Division I schools can score points in a maximum of 19 sports, four of which must be baseball, men’s basketball, women’s basketball and women’s volleyball. ... Texas ... claimed the 2020-21 Directors’ Cup with 1,252 total points. The Longhorns scored in all four mandatory sports – women’s volleyball, men’s basketball, women’s basketball and baseball – and 13 out of the 15 additional sports. Stanford placed second with 1195.75 points and was followed by Michigan in third (1126.50) and North Carolina in fourth (1126.25).”

See what we mean? It’s a big deal. Hook ‘em!
