They don’t rack up Learfield points on bowling and squash.

As I understand it, and someone correct me if I’m wrong, the rules require every D1 school to count 4 sports, MBB, WBB, WVB, and Baseball. Then schools can count other sports, up to the same total sports.

Now does Stanford (and some others) have a built in advantage by offering more total sports than other schools, thereby giving them more opportunities to have point scoring sports? Absolutely. But they count the same total sports as everyone else. And they have solid programs across the board usually. And excel in enough to be at the top every year on the Learfield standings.
