UNC, which I remember as quite comparable to UIUC in most rankings, is now 56 in the Times. I couldn't get the Shanghai to work, even from a Google search.

would like to think that the AFAM studies controversy is having an effect somewhere, even if not on the athletic fields.

I didn't see UVa on the list of the top 50. They used to be the top public university in the country, what happened there ?

You made me curious, so I did some searching. In 2009, they were too 100. Then 4-5 years in the 101-150 bracket. Last two years in the 151-200 grouping. Are you sure about that too spot history? If so, how long ago, because they've fallen a lot.

I was using the rankings out of US News & World Report , which by the way , has them tied for 24th in the US with UCLA, two spots behind Cal, which they have ranked as the top public school in the land.
