DUKE LEADS ACC SCHOOLS ACCORDING TO STUPID MAGAZINE

Meanwhile, over in the real world, the U.S. News and World Report put together a set of rankings based on somewhat legitimate criteria. Obviously, basketball wasn't one of them. The considered freshmen retention rates, acceptance rates, faculty resources, alumni giving percentages, etc. Here’s how the ACC stacked up.

Princeton University, 2. Harvard University, 3. Yale University, 4. Stanford University and 5. University of Pennsylvania.

Best ACC school was Duke #8, followed by UVA (23), UNC (28), Wake Forest (30), Boston College (35), Georgia Tech (35, tie), Miami (52), Maryland (54 – three quarterbacks), Clemson (67), Va Tech (71), NCSU (85), FSU (112 – no quarterback).

Here are a few other majors (non Ivy, non nerd schools) for perspective:

Vanderbilt (19), Notre Dame (20), Cal (21), Georgetown (23), UCLA (24), Michigan (25), USC (27), William & Mary (33), Wisconsin (38), Illinois (38), Washington (42), Texas (44), Penn State (48), Florida (49), George Washington (54), Ohio State (57), Pitt (59), Purdue (63), UConn (64), Delaware (71), Colorado (79), Kansas (85), Alabama (91), Nebraska (91), Auburn (96), Tennessee (97), Oklahoma (110) and South Carolina and Kentucky (112).

Do notice how those SEC schools are ranked down near the bottom…
