Call it the Gator Slam. The Florida Gators became the first program to hold football and men’s basketball titles at the same time Monday night with a 41-14 victory over top-ranked Ohio State.
Much like when Tiger Woods held all four golf majors — he didn’t win all of them in the same year, so it was dubbed the “Tiger Slam.” Same case for UF.
Nonetheless, only six Division I schools — including Florida and Ohio State — have won championships in the NCAA’s two marquee sports. But none of those had come closer than eight years apart — until now. The others are Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State and Syracuse.
Key thinking to this is “current holders of the championships;” and of course “thanks for playing.”
