And we built that fancy locker room for our football players! That should have gotten us into the top 100. At least. :roll:

I don't want to turn this into something about LSU but the quality of your State school affects all of us

This.

And that gets forgotten on here too often.

And that's coming from me, someone who hates LSU more rabidly than most
“We will expect success in all endeavors and be prepared to assess and hold ourselves accountable when we aren't successful. Tulane is a top 40 academic institution and it should expect nothing less from its athletic department.” --Troy Dannen 11.5.16

Prof, Eamon Kelley used to go around telling anyone that would listen that the goal of both schools should be to mirror Duke and N. Carolina. Two great academic schools with different, but complementary missions. But seeing LSU rank 9(?) out of 12 schools, academically, in the SEC tells me they have no interest in making the structural changes necessary to meet Dr. Kelley's vision.

Depends how many schools we're tied with...a 5+ way tie for 40th isn't really different than solo 44th.
