for verbiage to fill space.

Resulting are inanely-contrived, humorous pieces that say a whole lot of nothing...and mean even less!

Did you read the methodology?

[2]
Posted: Mar 20, 2014 7:24 AM
 

All they are doing is measuring how big the Wikipedia pages are of the people who are listed as alumni.

You can help Clemson out by going to a bunch of Clemson players' Wikipedia pages and making them really long.

Given the methodology, it's just a silly exercise, and I can't see why anyone would get upset about it.


good for them***

Are you really upset about this?

Number one, they're using Wikipedia as their source. That automatically kills their credibility. Number two, it's a completely unscientific survey. Number three, who cares?

SCar graduates more people in general than Clemson, which alone is bound to give them more nationally prominent people. They also produce more politicians on the state and national level. (Of our 9 Congressional Representatives, 4 of them earned some sort of degree from SCar; only one earned a degree from Clemson.)

I don't really think it's that big a deal.


I can't find what you are referring to.

I typed in USC and Carolina and found no reference to the Gamecocks.

Adolf Hitler was TIME's "Man of the Year" in 1938 ... that's

a fact. And Joseph Stalin was selected in 1939.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_Person_of_the_Year

Just show's what sort of thinking goes into the process of deciding who/what is "influential" at TIME ...

I'm not sure people read the article.

There was no "thinking". It's a silly measurement based on Wikipedia.


Wow Stalin won it twice

Stephen is a sad case of a young man being failed by an 'institution of higher learning.' If he's turning USuCk and SOS's failure into something positive it's a credit to him and his family.

I wish the boy the best.

Wow - I didn't realize TIME mag was still in existence as I haven't read that mag in 30-40 years. I guess I would have missed all of this important info about the stupid chickens.


I stopped reading after this:

The University of Florida is 2.76 times more influential than Johns Hopkins. (It got a big assist from sports-star alumni like Tim Tebow and Aaron Hernandez.)


Yeah, right.

bigger alumni base = more influence. not sure why this is a surprise


I haven't read the criteria, but "inflence" can be both good

[1]
Posted: Mar 20, 2014 7:49 PM
 

and bad. Stephen Garcia would certainly seem to indicate bad is weighing heavily.


LOL, Alvin Greene as coot alumni***
