i've heard the exact opposite about berkeley- that it is overrated b/c of the "berkeley" name.  probably isnt any truth to this, but i have heard it several times on this board and from a lawyer or two.

I've heard the exact same thing- that compared to the quality of the rest of Berkeley, Boalt is just not up to par.

Another underrated school: UCLA & Texas.  It really should be Sweet Sixteen, not T14.

t14 is a little strange, but 'sweet 16' isnt any better.  vandy is as national as ucla

Clearly, by admitting yours truly, Villanova is now underrated, as my admittance alone should be good for and upward move of at least 20-30 ranking spots come next year.

Yeah.  They're included too.

I think the top 25 is a better term to use.  Of course, you can still distinguish between 1-10, 10-15, 15-20, 20-25 etc.

But it is not so hard and fast like we make it on the internet.

i agree, round #s are better and there t14 is a line in the sand.  regionality still comes into play for the lower t14 schools
