Georgia’s athletic program finished #18 in the 2011-2012 Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings released this week. The Bulldogs were the third-highest SEC program – fourth if you include Texas A&M. Florida was second in the nation behind perennial winner Stanford.
Georgia’s #18 finish is a slight improvement from the #20 position they occupied for the last two years. But it’s still a long way from the state of the program a decade ago.
