Bad Education: Worst Colleges in America

Bad Education: Worst Colleges in America

Happily, many of life’s decisions are reversible. Shoplifting misdemeanors can be expunged, Crocs can be incinerated, and tribal tattoos can be removed.

But, alas, you can’t unflash your tits. And your alma mater is forever.

Take it from us: The decision you make as a 17-year-old will haunt you for the rest of your life. Luckily, we’re here to help. Every September suburban mailboxes across the nation are stuffed with earnest periodicals that rank academia’s most elite institutions. But it’s not much of a challenge to identify America’s best colleges. For millions of students whose SAT results place them south of Stanford, identifying the worst colleges seems like a far more valuable service.

Our annual college survey is an exhaustive, semiscientific guide to the most substandard schools in America, incorporating statistics on academics, graduation rates, and student life from a diverse array of sources, including the Princeton Review, U.S. News & World Report, and the U.S. Department of Education.

Explaining the New College Football Clock Rules

Last year the average college game lasted 3 hours and 21 minutes. Many televised games went well over four hours. Compare that with the NFL timing system where virtually every televised game ends between 2:55 and 3:05. So the college football overlords have devised a new system modeled on the NFL system. What they haven’t done, unfortunately, is replace the biggest issue: a 20 minute halftime for colleges vs. a 12 minute halftime for the NFL. Nevertheless these new clock rules replace the disastrous changes from the 2006 season which were scrapped after only a year. If you recall, those idiotic moves included starting the clock on kickoffs and beginning the play clock on a change of possession. Confused? Here’s a short tutorial. [Deadspin]

28 Most Cliche Dorm Room Posters

As long as there have been dorm rooms, there have been dorm room posters. Some of these posters have more staying power than others, however, and many of them have grown to be so popular that it’s literally impossible to visit a college campus without seeing them.

If you’ve ever visited someone at school, you have probably seen most or all of the posters that follow. [College Happens]
