I missed voting by only a few minutes. That would have put Vandy at a tie for #6. Blah!

You'll get 'em next year.

Wasn't a problem. I enjoyed myself. Now, to try to get Cooley to use this in their recruiting materials...

I expect a recurrence of these rankings AT LEAST once a year.  Well done.

Well he's had it in for me ever since I kinda ran over his dog... Well, replace the word "kinda" with "repeatedly" and the word "dog" with "son."

Well of course. Actually, some time in the next few days, I plan to recompile the rankings based on the total number of votes received by each school over the course of the contest. Then, we can have two sets of rankings sort of like how USNWR has two sets of rankings for medical schools, or like college football. ;)

Thanks to everyone for the positive feedback and for playing along.

Agreed. This will fare well for Vanderbilt (7) challenging UVA (20-something) in UVA's Softball Invitational next spring.  I encourage other schools in the new T-20 to attend as well... as fun as a discussion board BOD is it doesn't compare to an intramural slow-pitch softball tournament in C-Ville.

It will be interesting to see if Cooley publishes these BOD rankings on its web site.  Would they be pleased that an independent third party had ranked them in the top  50?  Or would they see it as detracting from their own rankings which place them much higher.
