Massaging The Data

Found a Top 10 college list with no connection to sports and -- surprise! -- found the University of Kentucky checking in at number seven.

My first thought was, what the heck, they don't even have domestic partner benefits at UK. How can this possibly be?

But, alas, the story behind the numbers has more to do with U.S. News' poor ranking for our state's flagship university than with anything good.
