Florida Has Something to Be Proud Of

The Princeton Review unveiled its annual list of biggest party schools and the winner is ... Florida! The Gators edged fellow Southeastern Conference member Mississippi, with Penn State finishing third.

On the other end is Brigham Young, voted No. 1 among stone-cold sober schools. Outside of BYU, you probably won't recognize many of the schools unless you carefully study nonconference schedules of SEC teams.

Here are the top 20 party schools:

1. University of Florida
2. University of Mississippi
3. Penn State University
4. West Virginia University
5. Ohio University
6. Randolph-Macon College (Ashland, Va.)
7. University of Georgia

12. University of Iowa
13. University of Colorado
14. Indiana University
15. Tulane University
16. University of Illinois
17. Arizona State University
18. University of Tennessee
19. University of Alabama
20. Loyola University New Orleans

My alma mater is #5 on the stone-cold sober schools.

First: Not a suprise that Gag Me Scott is on the sober list, even though it is in Atlanta.

Second: Couldn't pass up a chance to take a shot at the SEC again, could you. Jealousy is not flattering.

Maybe the SEC joke would have made some sense if any teams the SEC has played were on the list, or even if the list included a lot of SE schools. As it stands, its just an unnecessary cheap shot that doesn't even make all that much sense.
