    Penn State's definitely right where it belongs.

    Surprised they didn't have to extend the chart.

    They're all an embarrassment to an enlightened people.

    How did Indiana get on the "powerhouse" side?

    This is what you call "throwing shit against the wall."

    To say one program is more embarrassing than any other is to miss the point that the whole thing is a sham. I guess if you're using the "Right Way" model you could go with Stanford, Rice and the service academies as not being embarrassing and having at least some semblance of a relationship to the school's mission. But that's it.

    How KU isn't rated worse boggles the mind. Bad attendance. Tons of players who have been kicked off or left the team the last couple of years and on the field they belong as far toward "horrible" as they can slide with one Big 12 win in the last three seasons. (Though, it does say that rank is based on this season's projected wins.)

    It looks like you have to be a mid major to get into the crappiest quadrant of the chart.

    From Mizzou's standing, it appears the admirability of men kissing men is enough to overcome the embarrassment of men beating up women.
