Does anyone else think this is the most ridiculous article? UF students and alumni are known for being extremely arrogant, but this article is just beyond ridiculous. Let me count the ways...

  1. First sentence... "The question has lingered..." This writer doesn't cite a single person with whom the question lingers. In fact, a few paragraphs down, he cites UF's provost, who says just the opposite: "I think that U.S. News and World Report is not the end-all, be-all."

  2. Despite the headline, "What would making the top 10 mean for UF?," UF is currently #54 in US News & World Report's main rankings (http://colleges.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-colleges/rankings/national-universities/page+6). The writer has to rely on another USN&WR ranking to get UF even remotely close to the top 10 - they are the 17th best public university (FSU is #42, btw).

  3. This is an article. And yet it reads like an opinion piece.

  4. Surprise, surprise. The writer went to the University of Florida. http://www.linkedin.com/pub/joey-flechas/23/95/466
