We saw an interesting article on Wisconsin-Whitewater athletics today and how they seem to be dominating the D-III landscape in most sports.
We all know the success that the football team has had (seven straight appearances in the National title game, and four national titles in the past five seasons, including the past three in a row), the men's basketball team just won the national title after coming back from an 18 point deficit in the title game, and last season the baseball team made it all the way to the D-III World Series.
A fascinating note that we saw in the article...head coach Lance Leipold has won more National titles (four) than he has total losses as the head coach (three). Leipold is 72-3 as the head coach and is carrying a historic 45 game winning streak into next season (the longest winning streak in all of college football).
Over the last few months we heard Leipold's name in the wind for some jobs. It will be interesting to see how Whitewater tries to entice him to stay with the program long-term.
No NCAA team has ever won National titles in football, basketball, and baseball in the academic year. Whitewater is two thirds of the way there.
The article is a truly interesting read. You can read the whole thing here.
