Did YoYoDawg delete his post only to be caught by TMs quote job?

And that's still a pretty defensive answer. Lighten up Francis.

I didn't delete it. I have no idea where it went. 

But back to the point. WTF does it matter what the 2009 USNWR is? So what if your school moves up 6 spots or moves down 5? Employers still don't care. They do care about where you went to school. But not so much that a new USNWR ranking will effect their thoughts. (I can see them now "Oh Stanford moved back to number 3. Their graduates must be absolute crap. Don't hire any more of them." Right...)

Where you went to school and what your class rank was at school are all that matters. And a new USNWR ranking by your school won't help or hurt you in the least bit for the foreseeable future. (if there's a steady downward trend over a few years, then maybe...but for the most part, it's not going to effect anyone)

What are you even trying to say?  USNWR is like March Madness; it's fun for all of us to observe & comment, and we like to see our favorite schools do well.

Nobody is on here talking about their jobs being predicated on a single ranking spot.  You're no fun.

I have 10:1 Iowa will hit #40

10:1 is pretty light for a school that has been unjustly entrenched in the T25 for so long.

In all seriousness though, these things are available online this Friday for 15 bucks or whatever; they should leak before then, right?

Today or tomorrow. It's always something to do with a Barnes & Noble/Borders connection. Someone will post, everyone will cry flame, and eventually someone will scan it and post the picture.

Really, I'm just excited to see what the big E does.  It's been all over the map the last few years.

Give it some time...I think after another year of workin their magic w/ endless moneybags like they are doin this year and T-20 is there.
