    Yes, while it's accepted that the Big XI is the best "big conference" in terms of academics, it's not like the other conferences are not worth getting an education from. Sure, comparatively they suck, but they are still good schools and provide a good education.

    That's not even mentioning that where the Big XI really separates themselves is in post graduate academia.

        If you go by the silly US News rankings, the ACC is tops.

            Really? Because all ACC schools are in the top 30, just like the Big XI? Did you look at the rankings...I count 7 ACC and all 10 Big XI.

                Yeah, I never said anything about public only.

                  Ok, well 10/11 is still greater than 7/9. Throw in Northwestern being better than 2/3 of those, and I'm pretty sure the Big XI is considered tops academically, especially given the post graduate programs.

                    Penn State got shafted. I guess the weather being like 10 degrees for 3 months a year hurts us.

                      That party the dude described for UT, that is probably one of the larger frat's parties. I have been to one of those, it's douchebag central.

                            As most fraternities are. It's never good sign of your social acumen when you've got to pay stupid amounts of money to make friends and meet girls.

                              Yes, I am not a fan of schools that have their social scenes centered around the greek system. Which is why I love Iowa, and have heard that Madison is a perfect balance between greek and non-greek influence.

                                Hey,

                                I don't think having the highest ranked public at #15 is very good, sorry. And if you want to include all schools we can go head to head. The SEC is laughed at by everyone outside of the south as being schools that care more about football and care very little about academics.

                                Northwestern>Vanderbilt
                                Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Penn State>Florida
                                Ohio State>Georgia
                                Minnesota, Purdue, Iowa, Michigan State, Indiana>Alabama

                                So based purely on the non-biased rankings, every single Big Ten school is ranked ahead of the top 4 in the SEC. I'd say thats a landslide. But again, I've provided rankings, you've done nothing but call names and claiming I need to "research."
