Sun Tan U reverting to its normal form now that we are irrelevant on Saturdays. It’s a vacation school that turned football school after all.
Thanks for the analysis, I forget posts can’t be made without triggering your sense of personal attack. I know you are really proud of your alma mater, so feel free to put me on ignore so I don’t upset you moving forward..
You are one miserable fūck. You sound like a fūcking gaytor.
US News and World Report changed their metrics a couple of years ago which scores differently and hurt the University in their rankings. As you stated, I won't put too much into it.We're 39 in this one and ND dropped from 15 to 40 ..... All these lists are highly subjective... I wouldn't put much into what they say as far as ranking..These are the top 100 US universities, based upon the QS World University Rankings: USA 2020.

That and US News and World Report changed their metrics.Why am I not shocked that people, who complained when Miami was rising, is now pissed that after Momentum II, Miami fell a couple of spots. The USNWR rankings can be manipulated by high end fundraising, and FSU is in the middle of a huge fundraising drive, they are also doing everything they can to fudge their acceptance numbers, in order to look more selective. Never mind the fact that the difference between 33 and 50 in the rankings are a couple of rank points at best. When I showed up in Coral Gables in 2004, UMiami was ranked in the 70s. Miami has been able to hold over a 20 spot improvement for the better part of 15 years, with some peaks due to Dr. Shalala cleaning up in regards to fundraising and an increased yield of applicants.
That said, Frenk hasn't nearly been as effective in attracting top end faculty and administrators, so I wouldn't be shocked if his contract wasn't renewed. Then again, he wasn't my first choice to begin with. I wanted Stavridis, because of his research connections and the fact that he would have brought in a new, tech forward administrative team that would have found new opportunities for the University.
I can't believe we're rehashing an old list here but your larger point is absolutely accurate. The only thing I will say about this specific ranking is that it does show how adept at p-r the schools that shuffle annually between spots around 35-60 are. And that your ranking here does affect your freshman applicant pool. It's just not a good look despite the obviously flawed metrics to drop out of the top 50.Only idiots give the USNWR credence as an actual academic barometer.
“Best” in this case is not about academics.
Most of you don’t even have a clue what their ranking criteria is.
No doubt that we failed on the PR front. But it has nothing to do with academics, it has to do with leadership, namely Frenk.I can't believe we're rehashing an old list here but your larger point is absolutely accurate.

You really put faith faith in lists? The metrics used are ridiculously subjective. We’re supposed to believe that FSU went from about 105th to tide with UM? Sure.Got passed up by UF. And now TIED with FSU
Not elite in academics or sports. Smh.
