Lol, I'm not seeing "75% ugliness of state LS is located in" in the USNWR methodology.

Green onions are great but idk if I would go so far as to call them "food."

I actually have a bazillion of them growing in my garden (well, when it's not winter and all covered with snow anyway) so pistachios are defs more valuable to me atm.

North wrote:The Rules for Grading

    Everybody starts off with 100 points. I'll compare your submitted list to the USNWR list and deduct a point for: (1) every school that isn't at the rank it should be and (2) every school that is at a rank it shouldn't be.

So if I said
7. Berekely
8. UVA
But in reality they flipped, so the right answer would be
7. UVA
8. Berk
Then I would lose four points (UVA is not at 7, UVA is at 8, Berk is not at 8, Berk is at 7), but if I said
7. Whittier
8. UVA
and the correct answer turned out, for some strange reason, to be
7. Berekely
8. UVA
Then I would only lose two points?

*does some math*

So I'm guaranteed 50 points if I do this:

    23. William Mitchell
    24. Kansas City
    25. Stetson

Idgit. Aren't you guaranteed 50 points regardless since you can only lose 2 points per slot?

Drat. You're right. BUT by that logic, this is my new 76 point prediction:

    13.
    14.
    15.
    16.
    17.
    18.
    19.
    20.
    21.
    22.
    23.
    24.
    25.


If I don't predict a school, then it can't be at a rank it shouldn't be!
