Hawaii (only if they'd let me take an OV)
This thread inspired me to re-watch BMS. I want to go wherever I can get that party experience. (Minus the syphilis from Oksana, of course)
Not many people will get this reference.
Other than Michigan
As you can tell, I hate the cold.
First time posting on this board I believe, interesting topic. In no order:
Honorable mentions: Ohio State and South Carolina.
I ignored academics because if I have offers from everywhere, my degree is probably just a backup plan.
Come back to the thread on sunday.
I'm serving a bet, man!
Cope and Wags agreed to lift it for the game on Sunday.
K, I'll check in for the game.
As a student in Hawaii I can say that they'd definitely let you visit. Although you wouldn't want to come thanks to some of the worst facilities in the nation.
1. Michigan - No explanation needed.
2. Stanford - The Farm is nice, and obviously the academics and weather are outstanding.
3. Wisconsin - Madison is an awesome environment for college
4. UCLA - Academics, weather, women.
5. Washington - Awesome campus and surrounding area, great stadium
UChicago- even if they are D-III
I'm a senior right now, I still don't know where I'm going to go.
Did you apply to Michigan?
With Kiffen at U$C I wouldn't even give them a look either
Does U of Chicago have a team? I thought they gave it up when they left the Big Ten

UChicago is for nerds.
No kidding but they do have the highest percentage of Noble prize winners teaching there. My doctor is there also.
You are correct
1a: USC - Even harder to gain acceptance than Michigan, in an area with gorgeous weather and women, and a football program known for its success. I'm ignoring the fact that their coach is a tool here, obviously.
1b: Michigan - Elite academics, great campus, elite facilities and coaches who genuinely care about their players as students. The only minus is the weather.
3: Stanford: Elite academics, great weather and a rising football program.
4: UCLA - For all of the same reasons as USC, minus recent success. Still, academics outdo football by a mile for me; my skills can only be honed by coaching to a certain degree.
5: Florida State - I almost applied there in high school to see what kind of scholarships I could get and I regret not doing it, although I dodged listening to southerners by going to UM instead. Not terrible academically, but the weather and the rate they put out NFL players would be hard to overlook.
I wouldn't ever attend an SEC school: academics are poor all around, I can't stand southern accents and I wouldn't be able to take their "this is SEC country!" bull for more than a day. And stop with the "I could get paid in the SEC" rants, please.
Also, freakin' awesome topic Steve. Very interesting.
2. The U (if they got better facilities i.e. on campus stadium)
4. FSU (loved wathcing Ward and Dunn back in the day)
Honorable mention: Bama, Georgia, Texas
Yeah, I was deferred. So I'll probably end up at Illinois.
My dad got a couple of Masters' degrees there, confirmed that its for nerds.
No he's not. UofC DOES have a football team. We sent a kid there this year to play football.
