Ever looked at the tuiton to Harvard? It's a tad bit high.

The best schools churn out the most successful graduates who donate the most money back to the schools.

Yep.


It's expected at Harvard that you make donations.

It's expected from us at the Dental School, but good luck with that. I've paid that place enough.

They've also been around forever.

Damn I'm glad we dodged the B1G bullet. Funny how things work out.

There were 2 B1G games today.

Illinois beat (10)Michigan State 42-41
(20) Wisconsin beat Penn State 52-46

The WINNING teams combined for 94 points. Mizzou scored 104 in a game earlier this season. The losing teams combined for 87. Mizzou has scored 87 or more 8 times this season.

40 minutes of fail.

I found a list from 2009 that listed 791 schools by endowments. It's not 100% up to date, but I'm going to assume that it's close enough to paint a pretty accurate picture.



Boise State is 437th
Memphis is 246th
UCONN is ranked 189th
Wisconsin is ranked 187th
Kansas State is ranked 182nd
Clemson is ranked 158th
Auburn is ranked 157th
South Carolina is ranked 156th
Oregon is ranked 148th
Arizona is ranked 140th
Virginia Tech is ranked 138th
Florida State is ranked 128th
LSU is ranked 119th
Stanford is ranked 3rd
Yale is ranked 2nd
Harvard is ranked 1st


There is minimal correlation between endowments and athletic performance, and there is no causation because the primary purpose of endowments is not typically to fund athletic ventures. Your point, as usual, is retarded.

Can you provide the link to this list?

I'd like to chart some teams too.

Like... Alabama, Florida, Texas, USC, Ohio State, Miami, Oklahoma, Duke, North Carolina, Kansas



I'm just curious.

Bambi 01-31-2012 11:31 PM

Texas - 3rd
Duke -15th
USC - 21st
UNC - 29th
Ohio State - 31st
Florida - 54th
Kansas - 55th
Oklahoma - 58th

I stopped at top 60.

My list has 17 National Champions.

Yours has 5 National Champions.


(in the last decade)

You're a stud. Your list has more champions.

That will pull the best ass for literally weeks.

That's incorrect. We are in the conference we want to be in.

I think it's pretty clear that Wicked isn't very well endowed.

Saul Good 02-01-2012 06:10 PM

Mizzou should have stated in the Big XII. We would have the third best class.
