Two thoughts:
Alabama is the new Iowa.
Lol @ FSU, trying to game the rankings to beat UF. They cut their incoming class by 1/3 and planned to admit a monster transfer class, plus they offer huge amounts of scholarship money to anyone who would get an acceptance to UF. Pretty funny.

Agreed.  All the FSU students I know have been telling me for the past 2 years how "this is the year" they'll pass UF in the rankings.  It's going to be pretty hard, given the disparity between their reputation scores, for them to pass UF anytime soon.

Absolutely.  T1 in a couple of years?  The Penn State name is a strong branding around the Tri-State area.
I'm the most recognized and loved man that ever lived cause there weren't no satellites when Jesus and Moses were around, so people far away in the villages didn't know about them.

I think the addition of the State College campus will really help the school.  I have seen the designs and looks really nice.  If Pitt continues to fall or at best stagnates, PSU will replace it on the way to t1.

Do any of you know where I can find the rankings methodology?

Do you have a link you could give me?

Anyone think Penn State will be Tier 1 in 3 years time?

This is the closest I have come to finding the methodology explained.

It's old and some of the values have changed, but it does a good job of explaining the criteria.

I posted this on another forum last night, but I thought that I'd drop by here and post it as well for anyone who might be interested...

With all of the excitement surrounding the new ranking, I went ahead and created an Excel file with all of the top 100, and a separate section for the big gains and losses.

I've uploaded the entire file to my weebly site, so feel free to download.

Enjoy!
