    Bob Bowlsby, Stanford AD:
    “I don’t think you can have a uniquely successful athletics program without also being successful in football and men’s basketball and women’s basketball and volleyball, baseball here. You have to have your flagship programs be successful. It’s wonderful to win the Director’s Cup, and I hope we continue to win it every year. But I don’t think you can proclaim us to be a highly successful program until we are winning in the flagship sports as well.”
