After the announcement of UCLA winning the Men’s Capital One Cup and Stanford (once again) winning the Director’s Cup, many Louisville fans were outraged, due to the marvelous seasons Louisville athletics had all across the board.
CBS Sports decided to make an award of their own that was similar to the other two awards, but different in its own ways. For one, it only took into account men’s basketball, football, women’s basketball, baseball, and a “wild card” slot. The wild card slot was basically the best sport for a school that isn’t one of the main four; for Louisville, it was men’s soccer.
Honestly, I think it’s trivial to complain about things like not winning awards given by Capital One and the NACDA, but whatever. Even though it’s technically not an award, it’s nice to get some recognition for the teams’ achievements.
