    Marlow, make sure when you pay her off, you do it in cash, small bills not consecutively numbered, and above all, make sure she stays quiet about it ! And as for the new automobile.... get it registered in someone else's name.

      How is that list calculated? Texas doesn't make the list and they're nationally ranked in pretty much every sport.

      If it's by GPA and graduation rates, then I understand.

        And no SEC school in the top 20. What a joke.

          It's ranked by lamest mascots, so Stanford wins every year. As for the SEC, you'd be surprised how few varsity programs these schools have. Since they are so much into football, they have to cut down somewhere. . . Title IX, for better or worse.

            Marlow set up is confusing. Only 5 sports have had championships so far and you can score 10 mens and 10 womens sports so the season is nowhere near 2/3 over. For something that makes considerably more sense take a look at last years final standings.

              I'm very familiar with the varsity programs in the SEC. Those schools excel in the major U.S. "ball sports" (football, basketball and baseball). They also excel in the three major Olympic sports (t&f, swimming and (women's) gymnastics). Toss in top tennis and a few other teams, and I think you have an awesome athletic department.

                Deloss Dodds, UT AD, said when he took the AD role he was going to limit the number of sports but each sports would have every possible resource required to achieve national prominence. He didn't think you could fund 30+ sports well across the board regardless of how successful your football team is.

                  2/3 of the way through what season? We've had fall championships so far, nothing more. With winter and spring sports still to come, don't you mean 1/3?
