Longhorns Tumble in Playboy Party-School Rankings

UT goes down.
Face it: UT has a lot of trouble with rankings, whether it's college football or Playboy.

Sure, they sometimes (read: very rarely) come out on top -- Vince Young can lead them to a BCS title, Playboy can name them top party school in 2010 -- but mostly it's a series of disappointing finishes.

Such is the case again this year, as UT drops dramatically in the Playboy rankings, falling from the top spot all the way down to fifth.

And yet this calamity is not worthy of being addressed as emergency legislation in Austin? It's not more important than pointless resolutions about balanced federal budgets? This is why we're failing as a party state, people.

It's no use arguing with the rankings, because we're sure Playboy invests tens of thousands of man-hours developing rigorous criteria and applying them with manic precision.

So settle for it, Longhorns: You no longer rule.

That honor goes to what Playboy calls in a press release "The University of Colorado at Boulder," which we assume is Colorado University (at Boulder, though; we'll give Playboy that).

Rounding out the top five: Penn State, Arizona State and, ummm, the University of Western Ontario.

The thing is...UT never has been - and never will be - a "party school" in the same way or on the same level that a school like Arizona St. is. People actually do go to UT based on its academic quality.

In any event, Connelly and the others can keep on hatin'.

I think the annual Playboy ranking for University party listings is a joke. Every University has plenty of parties to go around. As far as everyone attacking Connelly, thats fucking ridiculous. Tom Jenkins did you even attend an accredited University? Let me say as a Tulane Grad, we had plenty of parties to go around and were located smack dab in the middle of New Orleans.

Thank the lord. When I was at UT, bangin sorority girls two at a time and trying to make sure they both had enough coke kept me EXHAUSTED. Sometimes I think it's why I ended up at UVA law instead of someplace respectable. Maybe it's easier for those poor kids to get a good education now that it's toned down a bit.

And yet Rice is still the only wet campus in Texas. I guess nerds getting drunk on $1 beers while other nerds run naked across campus covered in shaving cream just isn't enough for Playboy. Funny enough, during the '60s Rice had Playboy involved in some of its parties. Then again, Rice also had minstrel shows, too.http://scholarship.rice.edu/ha...

Connelly aligns with ND. the school that churns out all those fun loving, child molesting, jesus freaks. he's just sore that our network now trumps their NBC deal.

Yes, it's CU. It's also University of Colorado at Boulder. Colorado University is incorrect. Backwards, yes, but that's the way it is.
