I can't see Illinois sustaining medians on par with UCLA, UT, and Cornell when the job prospects from Illinois are so much worse than the aforementioned schools. But crazier things have happened.
You guys realize that this year's USNWR rankings are based on last years medians, right? Nothing about this cycle will influence rankings until next year.
