    I followed the University rankings when I was applying to schools, and the only SEC school I remember being on there was Vanderbilt. It took until about #60 to find another team. I know that doesn't tell the whole story, but #60 is pretty far off, and even then that's only 2 schools in the top 60. I'm not saying they suck at academics; but rather they place a gigantic emphasis on football. I'm not from the south, but at least here in the Midwest if you name just about any SEC school, football immediately comes to mind over anything else.

    I'm jealous that football is so big in the south, I just think it dilutes the overall goal of the university. That is all.

    Hey Crimson,

    You should check out my story on what happened at Penn State and let me know what you think. Whether you agree or not, it's an in depth story that also examines college sports and the mores of society today. Thanks in advance for giving it a look.
