I guess the painted fingernail ladies of the Women's Football team let the whole university down.

Duke’s women’s athletic programs combined to finish No. 5 in the 2011-12 Capital One Cup standings, tops among all ACC schools.
The final women’s Capital One Cup standings, which is an accumulation of points based on NCAA Championships performance and final poll standing, was dominated by the Pac 12 with five of the top eight teams coming from the west coast. The SEC also placed three teams in the top nine.
The ACC placed four other schools in the top 25 with Maryland claiming No. 10, Florida State No. 14, Virginia No. 16 and North Carolina No. 25.
Duke earned a total of 83 points – 69.5 behind the winner, Stanford (152.5). Stanford also took home top honors for the women last year.
Stanford defeated Duke in the women’s soccer final and the elite eight of the basketball tournament this season. Duke was bolstered with strong finishes in golf and tennis in the spring season.
North Carolina earned 34 points while NC State did not make the list of the 97 schools earning at least one. Virginia Tech was the only other ACC school not to earn any points.
In 2010-11, UNC finished No. 9 with Duke claiming No. 16 in the final women’s standings.
Capital One awards $400,000 combined in scholarships to the men’s and women’s winners each year.
The final men’s standings have yet to be released.
