    Why is that comical? Programs like those are the bread and butter at schools like USC, NYU and Northwestern. FWIW, UGA also has a good business and communications programs and are currently ranked #46 overall by US News. That's higher than UF was five years ago.

    UGA is much better than FSU, except in music/arts. UF however is MUCH better than uga at pretty much all technical/engineering degrees, and UF is exceptional in some engineering fields. You aren’t ranked as tied with Georgia tech and not have some exceptional degrees. I know several executives at intel, Exxon and other large fortune 500s that tank UF grads in their top 5 to recruit from.

    It's just not a major you ever see a football recruit basing a decision over.

    I believe this came asfrom as why kids may go to another school as far as education, not to play football.

    How much eligibility does his uncle have? Can we offer him again? Or even better would Matt be able to warp in through the transfer portal?

    It's funny, I don't have anything wrong with theatre film cooking it's all good I just don't think of that as college. Underwater basket weaving doesn't register either...I am joking, kind of.

    And I believe USCe still has the #1 rated international business school of any public university. Takes like a 3.9 GPA to get admitted into the program I've heard.

    Had a few moments so decided to quickly fact check this. rating: FALSE.

    Accounting - #11
    Biological/Agricultural Engineering - #4
    Materials Engineering - #8
    Industrial Engineering - #15
    Aeronautical Engineering - #15
    School of Business - #19
    .
    .
    .

    Took 5 minutes to get these and never got beyond biz and engineering (and did not finish either). There are plenty of excellent schools in the US, and you can get a terrific education in many places. But to say that UF is just "pretty good" and never great is inaccurate I believe, and to say UF has less than a handful of top 20 programs is demonstrably wrong. Now, would I like more top 5 programs? Sure. And that will take a ton of alumni giving and a much larger endowment (which is being worked on).
