Academic rank of FBS schools

Posted: 07/05/2013 8:48 PM

Academic rank of FBS schools 


I live near Coastal Carolina which has been passed over by the CAA and Southern Conferences.One of the reasons stated was academics according to some stupid message board.So this made me curios CCU is ranked 596 according to Forbes.

Six FBS schools were ranked 600-650 with BSU at 616.
The list only went to 650 so is Boise one of the Six worse academic schools in FBS.


Coastal is in a growing area and is growing like a weed so its surprising they would get passed up.

I put the link with the original post.
I have no idea how this list was made or the criteria .Looked it up to see why Coastal did not get an invite .Coastal publicly campaigned for a CAA invite .

this simply can't be true.....
after all..........
boise has won at least 2 national championships, countless nationally televised primetime bowl games against the best teams in the country, and has the best football team in the country for at least 20 years running...........
this list must be put together by jealous Vandals........
obviously another anti-boise conspiracy!

I think it's much worse that Idaho is 396th on that list...really? Not smack but the list of schools before Idaho really surprises me.

College of Idaho is quite a bit higher than Idaho, they came in at 222nd.

Also note the high ranking of BYU and then note the amount of advertising the Y does with Forbes.   At least I thought I saw a lot of Y online stuff advertised.   These polls are often out of whack with so many different variables --- but UI sure isn't at the far, far end.

Old news, like our local, regurgitated, "Metropolitan University of Research"?  Crock of chit dad9 and you know it.  Bobby can grow a good football team, but in academics he is seen as a clown. . . .and just reading your "pretty good posts that tell me you are not the norm in broncomania", I think you realize this too.biggrin

Ask anyone on the street in Boise to name the BSU current AD and most will have no clue ---- probably, end up saying, "Kustra".  The guy has an up side, of course --- he is a fighter for the Bronco nation, but my Lord, his "negatives" are killing you with possibilities of Big 12, and for sure, PAC 12.  He certainly radiates that "back-stabbing" politician.  Don't think for a New York minute that the academia of the FBS big boys have not taken note of this.  Like I have always said, right now, the best student recruitment tool (for the merit type kid) for the state's other schools (UI, ISU and LCSC) is Bob Kustra.  Parents and students hear his name and I would venture, a big negative thought pounces right into their minds.  You can still maintain the football quality and have a real collegian as your Pres.  But, please keep him.  I love the mileage we are getting out of him.  Oh, it's Coyle?  Or something like that, as your AD.  Right?biggrin

Kustra has taken that football program and is getting the most out of it. Even Vandal fans have to admit that the growth has been amazing on campus, even outside of athletic facilities. I'm not going to argue the point that Boise State has alot of growing to do academically. But Kustra has had a great affect in seeing how to take advantage of what he's got and using it for gains campus wide. Back-Stabbing politician? Whatever you call him he's getting great results.

UI was founded in 1889, and bjc was founded in 1932.  I see you must be taking your remedial math class at the jc, eh dumfk?  As your remedial math teacher will tell you, 85 does not equal 43.  I understand this math thing can be kind of tricky for stupid people such as yourself, so I will go slowly:

If you subtract 1889 from 1932 (forget they are years -- that just makes the story problem confusing -- just remember years are really numbers -- that should help).  The buttons on your calculator should help if you have a problem carrying the ones.  You should come up with 43.  

You should take solace in the fact that among the MWC schools (and any respectable schools) - there is only one that offers remedial math classes for credit.  Most (real) universities require their students to meet standards before pursuing their dream, but I guess "Regional Research Universities of Distinction" appear to like to start their building blocks from the literal ground up.
