Seven Colleges In America Are Very Good At Football, And Very Good At Partying


While the country’s “experts” are fumbling to find a functional rankings system for college football, we at SportsGrid have created our own formula to calculate the nation’s top schools. And we’re only paying attention to the things that matter.

By cross-referencing the preseason AP Top 25 with the Princeton Review’s Top 20 Party Schools, we’ve compiled a small list of institutions of higher learning that excel in both football and partying. You know what that means?

These are the most American schools in America:

1. Georgia

Princeton Score: 5; AP Score: 6; Composite Score: 11

2. West Virginia

Princeton Score: 1; AP Score: 11; Composite Score: 12

3. Florida State

Princeton Score: 8; AP Score: 7; Composite Score: 15

4. Wisconsin

Princeton Score: 13; AP Score: 12; Composite Score: 25

5. South Carolina

Princeton Score: 17; AP Score: 9; Composite Score: 26

6. Florida

Princeton Score: 6; AP Score: 23; Composite Score: 29

7. Texas

Princeton Score: 15; AP Score: 15; Composite Score: 30

    The Ap and Princeton links both go to ESPN.

  • Uptowner

    LSU specifically asked to be left off of the PR party list because of developing a “bad reputation”… That’s your real winner here

  • Just wondering…

    WhAt about academics? What about the real reason those students are there?

  • football and academics

    UGA, Wisconsin Florida and Texas are all excellent schools.

    Not really. Wisconsin is excellent but that’s it.

    You clearly don’t know anything about public universities. UGA is considered a “public ivy”. Texas and UGA are among the 5 or 6 most selective public schools in the nation.

    When it comes to football UGA is far from a public Ivy, its a great school, but the selection process for football is based upon whether Richt gave the kid a scholarship, and they meet the NCAA’s minimum requirements. uga is among the nation’s leaders in granting special circumstance acceptances.

    That’s standard operating procedure for pretty much everyone in the SEC (aside from Vandy). Of course UNC (one of the original Public Ivy’s) is likely to get hammered for the handling to Julius Peppers’ (and several other players) eligibility, so the SEC is certainly not alone in this (from what we know they haven’t cheated to keep their players eligible, let unqualified players into the university? sure, but those players either managed to meet the requirements or were put on academic probation and/or kicked out when they fell below them).

    “uga is among the nation’s leaders in granting special circumstance acceptances.”

    Complete load of horse shit from some idiot who doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

    “When it comes to football UGA is far from a public Ivy”

    He was not talking purely about football dumbass. He was talking about overall academics at the University. Please do everyone a favor and shut the hell up.

    Douglas you are an idiot, Florida and Georgia are both considered public ivy’s from a purely academic standpoint, football has nothing to do with it. And It’s not like the recruit these players because they are smart academically, they recruit them because they can play football, and that goes for any school.

  • Public Ivy, lol

    Bahahahaha, what are you talking about? Who in their right mind would consider UGA a public Ivy? It’s ranked like number 60? It isn’t even the best public school in it’s own state, and it’s not even close. Most selective, you have to be kidding. UGA accepts 60% of its applicants.

  • big b

    uga accepted 5000 of its 20000 applicants last year

  • http://www.facebook.com/brad.drawdy.16 Brad Drawdy

    thats ridiculous. check out gpa/SAT requirements to get into uga. look at their ACADEMIC ranking. fool.

  • http://www.facebook.com/brad.drawdy.16 Brad Drawdy

    ahahaha you are a fool. 60% of their applicants? when i got into uga you had to have a 3.7 gpa in honors classes and a 1350 and it’s gotten even harder since 05′. people like you are the reason we have dumbasses out their. they go and read some bs on the internet / /, and then try to pass it off as truth.

  • Qwerty

    All that is required to attend uga is a pulse and a check. If you have neither of those things you must wait a year and transfer. The only reason uga is selective is because the HOPE scholarship drove up the volume of applicants that would have otherwise gone out of state. Academically uga can be compared to the 13th grade. I haven’t laughed so hard in quite a while. Thanks for that fellas.

  • emurf15

    thats completely false…get your facts straight. you have no clue what you are talking about

  • Anonymous

    You’ve completely missed the point of this article. It’s comical. Go ahead and laugh now.

  • RLGodlewski

    Sorry you didn’t get in.

  • NotSorry

    What public school in the state of Georgia is better than UGA, pray tell. The only school that may be considered better than UGA is Emory (and it’s private). Thanks for playing. Better luck next time.

  • Just wondering

    I agree. I am sure there are some talented students and profs, bit to be ranked for athletics and partying??? Really?

  • Georgia = Fail

    Is this a joke? Georgia Tech is a much better school and that’s not even up for debate. And not that anyone’s counting, but they have twice as many football national championships as Georgia and are more successful than UGA at virtually every other NCAA sport. Suck it bitch, thanks for playing.
