You may have noticed a seemingly constant stream of stories and Tweets and Facebook posts the past few months that include the phrase “Gators win SEC title’’ or something similar to that.
There’s good reason. Florida’s athletic teams have added SEC regular-season titles this sports calendar year in soccer, volleyball, women’s cross country, men’s basketball, men’s indoor track, women’s tennis and men’s golf. The UF women’s lacrosse team won its conference title, too.
UF now has 200 SEC titles in school history, easily the most of any school in the conference. And each one is important to UF athletic director Jeremy Foley.
