WSJ College Football Rankings including Academics


Posted: Oct 13, 2016, 10:41 AM
 

This is not at all what I expected. The ACC on average comes in as the #2 conference behind the B10, but Clemson comes in at #207. One of their factors is graduates salaries, this could be main reason we don't come out higher, even though we are ranked in the Top 25 of public universities.

Any consolation...USuC is #265...

Sigh...

Without reading - there are only 128 FBS schools so I assume they are including FCS schools also, based on your post. Correct?

The college rankings numbers are for all colleges (public and private) and not just those with FBS or FCS football programs. For instance, Stanford is ranked #1 academically and MIT is ranked #2 (don't think they have football at all).

I subscribe to WSJ and reading the article of academic ranking. the category that really hurt Clemson was diversity of student body.

So its not just an academic rating

but an arbitrary list of criteria that some journalists put together who really don't care about football. Should be based upon graduation rates of the football players, and their success after college. Then again I couldn't read the article because I'm not a subscriber, so I'm just shooting from the hip, a hip shot if you will.

The title suggests the rankings are based on academics, and has nothing to do with football.
