in terms of academic year: they won basketball in 2005-2006. texas won football. florida would have to win both in 2006--2007.
in terms of calendar year: thet won basketball in 2006. the footbal game against OSU has been given the title Tostitos BCS National Championship: Arizona 2007 (for it will be played in 2007)
Florida is NOT halfway there
god this is going to get painful.
yes you are right they could not be double champions in an academic year (by the way when you do your taxes tell uncle sam you are basing your income off the academic year, let me know how that turns out). but if you go to the NCAA athletic website and look at the list of past division I Football national champions (http://www.ncaa.org/champadmin/ia_football_past_champs.html) they have Texas as the champions for 2005. Wow you better call them and tell them that Texas is not the champion for 2005, rather 2006, they would probably appreciate it. It does not make sense that the team who wins this game is the 2007 National Champion when the 2007 college football season has not even started! Oh I dont think you disagreed, but if you go to NCAA website and look at past basketball champions (http://www.ncaa.org/champadmin/ia_football_past_champs.html) florida is the 2006 champions. SO according to the NCAA (for what thats worth), if Florida wins this game they will be both football and basketball champions for 2006. Wait i didnt underline and italicize things, my argument must not be convincing.
