    This year's Times Higher Education rankings have been released. And there is an alarming trend

    by Riot West
    2016-09-22 12:17:47


    In 2011, Utah was ranked 83rd IN THE WORLD!
    Every year since, Utah has dropped and dropped and dropped and dropped and dropped. Utah is now over 120 places LOWER than it was in 2011.

    And this trend isn't just showing up in THE rankings. As mentioned a few weeks ago, Utah has been dropping in the ARWU Rankings as well.

    FREE Bar Crawl - Tomorrow - PAC-12 Schools - Santa Monica

    2016-08-26 13:37:17

    Booze it up (or not) with the other PAC-12 alumni in Santa Monica. Drink specials and food specials.

    Talk shit. Network. Find that special someone!

    And if you get there early enough, you can get some PAC-12 branded swag. We all know how much us Utes love putting that PAC-12 on EVERYTHING!

    One last point. If you don't show up, you are a real L7. Total square. Lame.

    Houston clearly for political reasons and Memphis is willing to take little money and will come with the FedEx sponsorship.

    College Rankings That Are Worth a Damn

    by Riot West
    2016-07-12 12:51:45

    How is academics not a category here?

    Anyway, here are some recent college rankings:

    CWUR - Center for World University Rankings - Utah: 66; BYU-P: 435

    The Center for World University Rankings (CWUR) publishes the only global university ranking that measures the quality of education and training of students as well as the prestige of the faculty members and the quality of their research without relying on surveys and university data submissions.

    The Times Higher Education World University Rankings - Utah: 182; BYU-P: no ranking

    The Times Higher Education World University Rankings are the only global performance tables that judge research-intensive universities across all their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. We use 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons, trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and even governments. The basic methodology for this year’s rankings is similar to that employed since the 2011-12 tables, but we have made important changes to the underlying data.

    The performance indicators are grouped into five areas:

    Teaching (the learning environment)
    Research (volume, income and reputation)
    Citations (research influence)
    International outlook (staff, students and research)
    Industry income (knowledge transfer).

    ARWU - Academic Ranking of World Universities - Utah: 93; BYU-P: 301-400

    ARWU uses six objective indicators to rank world universities, including the number of alumni and staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals, number of highly cited researchers selected by Thomson Reuters, number of articles published in journals of Nature and Science, number of articles indexed in Science Citation Index - Expanded and Social Sciences Citation Index, and per capita performance of a university. More than 1200 universities are actually ranked by ARWU every year and the best 500 are published.

    Abortion and Fight Club

    by Riot West
    2016-06-30 13:20:29

    In the Fight Club book, Marla Singer says to Tyler Durden, "I want to have your abortion." This line didn't fly with the execs at Fox, and they insisted they change the line. Fincher agreed to change the line as long as the replacement line was allowed no questions asked.

    The movie line: "I haven't been fucked like that since grade school!"

    Thanks UFN for having the topics over the past week!

    Anyone up for being on a game show? I plan on bidding $80k every time.

    Hey there!
    I’m reaching out to you on behalf of The Price is Right. On Sunday, March 6th at 8:30am we’re taping a College Rivalry episode at CBS Studios in Hollywood and we wanted to personally reach out and encourage current students & alumni from the University of Utah to attend!
    Everyone from the University of Utah who attends will have a chance to be a contestant and play against contestants representing rival schools (like BYU) for cars, trips, and amazing prizes!
    We’d love to have the [Utes] proudly represented in the audience, no matter how many can make it, but the more, the merrier!
    If this is something you would be interested in, please let me know by January 22nd as space is limited.
    We look forward to hearing back from you!

    Damn my eyes! I clicked a comments link on an ESPN article and looked at Cougarbored...

    by Riot West

    They truly have an irrational perception.

    So, in their perverse "logic," if someone calls them dirty, then the person/team calling them out is to blame for any dirty plays that BYU-P will predictably make part of "playing on the edge."

    Do these same idiots also think their battered wives had it coming for talking back to them?

    Or, that the girl in the tight dress had it coming for wearing clothes like that?

    Pathetically, I strongly believe that the answer is yes, the zoobs do not hold themselves accountable for their own actions and reactions, and instead, blame others for the consequences that result from the zoobs lack of self control.

    Fuck those guys.

    **when picking the category, I always scroll too far because I'm looking for the "Zoob" category.

    How many of the nation's eyes will be watching just to see the dirty shenanigans from BYU-P? They have a reputation to hold up after all. If Roscoe lacked control before, he's especially going to be a lame duck now that he's out the door. I fully expect that our coach has already instructed our team on how to react once the hooligans in testicle blue start up with their cheap shots.
