UCLA Moves Toward Century Mark.: Even though the Bruins' Women's Soccer team lost to the North Carolina Tarheels 2 - 0 today, the men's team still has a chance to make UCLA the first Division I school to attain 100 NCAA Championships.

Another reason for the rest of the country to hate Southern California.

I would have assumed Stanford was ahead of everyone else in this category, given how long they've completely dominated the Director's Cup. Does anyone know where there is an updated listing of such championships?

Deep in the bowels of the NCAA site. And your Stanford guess turns out to be pretty good, too, tieguy.

TBH: you're Da Man. Or something like that. Spectacular that the three cali schools are up there and then there is a huge dropoff from USC (84) to #4- OSU with 48. Duke has 8, which is nice- I didn't realize they'd gotten up to four in women's golf. (All in the past 8 seasons, even- not quite Carolina in women's soccer, but working on it.) If only one of the sports that keeps threatening but never quite makes it (lacrosse, field hockey, soccer, women's basketball) would break through. Feels like we've been to a ton of final fours in the past decade that haven't paid off. Sort of surprised that UCLA doesn't count the '54 football title and make it a nice round 100, the way that Carolina counts the '20s basketball titles. Should be some way to drop out sports that one school completely dominates- Carolina in Women's Soccer, OSU in men's wrestling (34 titles!)

UCLA probably gets to first from a lot of tennis and water polo, plus the men's basketball, while USC has Rod D. and the baseball team to thank. USC (men's water polo, defending national champs who face Cal today in the finals), Stanford (women's volleyball) and UCLA (men's soccer v. UC-Santa Barbara) are all still live for an additional title each in the current Fall sports too!
