    #2 Public school in the midwest and #25 in the midwest overall not too shabby.

    Maybe we aren't the University of No Intelligence after all.

    Great link! Good foreshadowing in terms of Fordham and ironic li'l Towson State mention at the end too. I had always heard that it was the Ivies who reached out to get the Patsies formed but never knew it really was that clear cut and simple. Wow, one league telling a group of schools to form another league. To be their Ivy-Lights. Doesn't get much patsier than that!

    William & Mary was actually in the original Colonial League. However, W&M dropped out a year before the league began formal play due to a dispute over (what else?) scholarships. Davidson came in as a replacement and competed in the 1986, 1987 and 1988 seasons and dropped out in the Spring of 1989, to be replaced by Fordham.

    Missouri State is the #1 choice among Missouri high schoolers taking the ACT: http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/e...217ca46f4.html

    Too bad US News does not assign value to schools fulfilling their missions.
    The only untenable situation is the one you are in right now. Support the dissolution of football at Missouri State University.

    Since William and Mary is the oldest school in Virginia, and the 2nd oldest in the country, is William and Mary considered the "Flagship School" in Virginia?

    "The carrot was the Ivy promise to provide at least 16 games a season, many in Colonial League stadiums. ''Yale Here Saturday'' would be more exciting in Lewisburg, Pa., Bucknell's home town, than Towson State."

    Would have been, but in the time since this was written, Yale has played Bucknell only twice ('96 and '97), both times in New Haven.

    Today, just 11 games, and three are with Georgetown, which is now 6-30-1 (.175) vs the Ancient Eight.
    And only one against Colgate, the most-played OOC Ivy opponent.

    Not FCS but Temple comes in at #115 for National Universities, #53 for public national universities.

    Not sure of the updated department rankings but our undergrad business program had been 57th as of 2015 iirc.
