UM #20 in yet another "Best Universities on Planet" list

UM #20 in yet another "Best Universities on Planet" list

Yet more to brag about.  The QC World University Rankings, done for several years now, ranks universities on the planet "using a methodology that evaluates academic reputation, employer reputation, student-to-faculty ratio, as well as international reputation."  MIT apparently scored a perfect 100 in each category.

The "2019" rankings are out, and we are #20, the only public US institution in the top 20.  (Berkeley didn't even make the top 20 -- it was #27.)  OSU was #89 and MSU was #141.

It seems like the number of posts and comments have started to pick up in recent weeks. It got me thinking back to the argument that began after MGoBlog 3.0 rolled out with all of its bugs about whether or not the update had killed the board, or if the board was always so quiet during the peak of the off-season.

There's still a lot to fix on the new site, but one of the frustrating things about the old site has been decisively remedied: It used to be nearly impossible to access any board threads beyond the first page.

That has been corrected. While the front page tile only shows 7 threads, significantly fewer than the old site, there is a button at the bottom of the tile that says "Go to Mgoboard."

The Bronco is on its way. The Blazer is back (as a crossover, but sure). The resurrected Camaro is on its 3rd face. What now defunct car do you want them to bring back? You'd buy it in a heartbeat... if only they still made it.

Let us know what and why!
