Any doubt that the University of Florida had the dominant athletics program in the Southeastern Conference during the 2010-11 school year was put to rest Sunday as the university was named the SEC All-Sports champion by the New York Times Regional Media Group for the third-straight season. Sweeping all three titles – overall, men’s and women’s – the Florida Gators won by staggering numbers in each category, literally dominating the competition.

Florida is the only school to sweep all three titles in a single season, accomplishing the feat for the 11th time, fourth in the last five years and third-in-a-row (2006-07, 2008-09, 2009-10). All 16 of UF’s sports (nine women’s, seven men’s) were counted with cross country, indoor and outdoor track & field combined into one unit per gender.

The Gators won eight SEC titles over this period: baseball, men’s basketball, men’s golf, men’s track & field, women’s cross country, soccer, women’s tennis and volleyball. It is the fourth time UF has won seven or more SEC titles in a single season.

Florida has been victorious in 21 of the last 24 All-Sports awards with the men’s program winning its 15th and women’s program winning its 18th respective individual titles.

The Gators lead the SEC with 201 all-time team titles.

    It’s GREAT to BE a Florida Gator!

    Congratulations, Gators! This is a testament that Foley is a probably the best AD in the country and supports all sports, not just football and basketball.

    Foley is the best AD in the history of AD’s. UFs fanbase ain’t to shabby either.

    With our resourses and other advantages it would be a travesty if UF did not win this. It’s ours to lose every year so to me it’s a birthright not a wow!

    Us gators are entitled to nothing…everything must be earned…this is a major accomplishment..no matter how many times we win it….”its our birth-right” is the type of mentality that breeds bad seasons…
