Not sure West End was saying to weigh just football and basketball...

I think he was saying that certain sports (for example: rifle and squash) should be weighted based on the number of school's participating in the sport. If all the sports are weighted the same, then I agree with West End that the Director's Cup only benefits the programs with deep pockets.

It should never be a surprise to see the schools with 30+ programs in the top 25 every year. The fact that Tech gets ranked as high as we do, while never winning a Natty in any sport, is actually very respectable... some years impressive.
