...yawn... :roll: Times are not changing. This looks like one of those late-90's rankings. The top-20 looks the same as always...just musical chairs.

U-Washington is by far the big winner this year. Arizona St. improved by 14 spots, but UW made the most significant change. Top-20 is only a notch below T14. A lot of people don't know that U-Washington was #23 at one time. The significant thing about U-Washington being #20 is that it's in a very desirable major city with relatively low cost of living.
Their applications are going to skyrocket next year, and that could push them even higher...#17 or so. They have been increasingly getting more and more apps from top students.

Apps aren't weighted heavily enough for any of that nonsense to happen.

I give this year a 167. No rankings-induced meltdown that involved a poster trying to get TLS into legal trouble because of anger over how his school was 'on the decline' and ended in a perma-ban, so hard to see it cracking the 170s. Curve is set to high. But the "we get it rad, no one takes it seriously" posts alternating with the "why did H fall below S, I thought their spending per student rates were the same?!" posts was pretty good.

They'd need to start letting in a lot more URMs before that could happen.

Yes,Columbia has a basketball team. They even have a football team! They play in the sports league known as the ivy league.

After initial disappointment about the rankings, I've been reassured by this: Brady Hoke - "This is Michigan" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oja8RXz6wb8

The apocalypse has struck. Cornell can never come back from this death knell. It will undoubtedly sink into obscurity, a la 'nova. Your best bet is to buy a rising stock, think IPO!, and that golden, flaming rocket, drunk on vainglory for the top spot, is Arizona State.

It is like they all take a turn.

Wisconsin
Iowa
Illinois
Indiana
Minnesota gets its turn this year.

Next year will probably go to Ohio State.


Minnesota has been in the top 25 for the last 25 years, or thereabouts.

Yeah, USNWR put a bunch of arbitrary numbers in a big coal-fired machine and turned the magic lever.

I wonder if USNWR has 2014,2015,2016,2017........all ranked and ready to go. More efficient. They probably use some fortune cookie company for the rankings...
