Stanford is going to need a bigger trophy case

It could hold lots of jelly beans.MSN has reported that WVU is 35th in the nation in the Director's Cup which leads all full-time Big East members as ND has more points but they don't count. The Director's Cup is an award for total athletic department achievement. From

This program honors four all-sports champions in the NCAA Divisions I, II and III and the NAIA. Each institution is awarded points in a pre-determined number of sports for men and women. The overall champion is the institution which has a broad-based program, achieving success in many sports, both men's and women's. The winner in each division receives a Waterford crystal trophy and a $5,000 postgraduate scholarship.

Stanford has won the award 12 out of 13 years and 12 straight with UNC as the only other winner. Other schools of interest. UMD is 32nd, Louisville 36th, VT 44th, Pitt 45th, Syracuse 193rd, Marshall DNQ. But, in Marshall's defense they suck.

Exactly how far does a $5,000 post graduate scholarship go at Stanford?

Looking specifically at the law program, for now obvious reasons, one year of Stanford Law runs $40k. So that $5,000 scholarship gets you, well, one class. W00t!

They would have had more available, but the trophy is really expensive and it comes filled with candy.

That would cover a couple books and a pen or two. I do enjoy candy.
