Damn. Knew I should have changed mine to a tie.

Oh well, I'm glad Duke is getting more respect.

Looks like Mich's death grip on the T10 isn't giving out for at least another year.

There's the top 9. For a variety of business reasons I need to go slowly and can't just dump them out here. But will keep tweeting all day!

Also, I have about 15 PMs already so I don't think I'll have time for "where is my school ranked?" even though every single PM I have is from people here who I like and respect. Many apologies for that --in hindsight I should not have scheduled conference calls all day today.

I got a good laugh out of that, ultra aggressive tactics by Columbia allowed them to place twice and out Chicago.

HA! Fixed that. I'm pretty slammed right now. For the record slammed in the waiting tables busy sense, not the 3am TLS posting sense :)

Mike: might as well tweet #10 (Duke and Michigan) tie. (Process of elimination from USNews sneak peak!)

Ugh, "massive ties past top 20."

I HATE ties! I really think that in the event of a tie that they should have a panel that makes a call, flips a coin, etc...

This. Their job is to rank the schools. Ties are a cop out.

+1 Ties are some "everybody gets a medal" boomer bullshit.

If they just didn't round the scores, there would almost never be a tie.
