MSU: Worst of the Big Ten

I don't normally go in for Spartan bashing, but this one is too good to pass up. TNR's Jon Chait (a U-M and Michigan Daily alum) points out this great Radar feature on America's worst colleges. Michigan State is highlighted on the first page as the Worst of the Big Ten:

It's not surprising that this hard-drinking football school hasn't made it to the Rose Bowl since 1988: Much of its student body seems to be in jail. ... Mix MSU's licentious ways with notoriously high acceptance rates and low SAT scores, and you get the school ranked dead last among the Big Ten.

Go to Chait's post on the Plank for more fun.

First off, this Radar 'publication' went out of business not too long ago, and is trying to get back on track. For all we know some Daily alum is behind this whole thing. Secondly, MSU is on the U.S. News & World Report's list of top universities. Lastly, MSU isn't even the lowest-ranking Big Ten school on the list. There is one tied in the same position and another one lower on the list.
