who here is going to use the next rankings to decide where to go?

Not exclusively, but I definitely plan to take any movement into account.

Finally, back to subject...Somebody may have already mention this, but what's the word on the street about George Mason.  Will it continue its fast climb or stabilize?

Stabilize. If they go up it won't be much. There is too much snobbery involved for Mason to go that much higher.

You think?  I thought the only thing holding them back was the fact that they were so new and they haven't had time to establish an academic reputation amongst the stogey older legal community who take these surveys.  Their acceptance rate is good and their student academic numbers are better than average and 1st salary is pretty high.  I really don't know, that's just what I've heard.  Am I incorrect?

P.S. Just like ESPN, posters on this thread talk way too much about the Yankees and Redsox.  Its like a argument among the Titanics' violinists about who plays better.  Baseball is dying.  As a pre-1994, pre-interleague play fan, I have my shovel ready to bury it.

Look for Hastings to recover a bit.

They were actually talking about Fever Pitch, but ummm . . . what?

No, I got that.

One of them brought up the Packers, and how they didn't sell themselves out for some bad romantic comedy. I linked that movie, in which the Packers are whored prominently.

How come so many teams set record breaking attendances last year?

First, cause football hasn't taken over every market yet....yet.  Also, the death rate is slowing down while older generations are starting to attend more games.  However, younger generations are not.  Baseball's losing them to football and probably soccer one day.  Give it a few years, baseball would lose its fan base to mortality.

That is interesting, usually Minnesota is a lock at 19. Although I can't seem to find their numbers from last year on their site, so maybe they will slip.
If they do slip it could be ugly since they base most of their propaganda on the fact that they are a "Top20" school.
