Still, after all of these years.    We have so much to be proud of.  (sniff)
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Well at least we ranked higher than Georgetown, ND, and BC in something.

Don't know about all but there are some legit college girls in Playboy's college edition.

I know, Kim Hiott from a few years back was a legit student at Texas A&M.

kind of a jumbo-shrimp style award, but that makes it even a bit cooler.  one school i'm surprised we beat out is Loyola-Marymount, they can get after it and are on da beach.

I'll agree with that, how the Marquette/Milwaukee package outdoes the Loyola-Marymount/LA package, I dont know. I don't know what the criteria are for this award though. My opinion is this has everything to do with Marquette being in Milwaukee, a nice compliment nonetheless. This could inflate an already soaring application rate to MU. I recently read in the MU Tribune that MU outdid itself once again for # of applications, I think it was around 19,000, not too shabby considering each class is around 3,000.

Marquette, being the difference in drinking establishments across Milwaukee

Worried? What's wrong with you? Of course we should be proud.

Loyola Marymount is bush league out here. The real Catholic party school is the University of San Diego. everybody lives at the beach. Many more bars than Playa Vista; bigger beaches and students from UC San Diego,San Diego State and others all living along a few miles of beach wearing board shorts. Plus the women are spectacular

What the hell is there to worry about? I was just worried the kids today were becoming to big of nerds and not focusing on their social education.
But I like to throw handfuls...

Playboy 2010 top 10 party schools announced--Congrats Badgers!
« Reply #18 on: April 18, 2010, 10:27:12 PM »
Football in a BCS bowl? Nope
Beat Cornell in NCAA? Nope

PERENNIAL TOP 10 power in Playboys Top ten party schools? You Bet!!

Congrats to the No 3 party school , and No 1 (natl Champ!) beer drinking college in USA.
With really good recruiting of more partiers, more mandatory beer drinking, and the newly established UW Intl School of Partying, UW is sure to challenge for a natl championship.

Here's Playboys scouting report:

3 UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-MADISON
It’s the best beer-drinking school in the country. Quote us. And with Badger sports improving (but still frustrating), the faithful show they can drown their woes in drink without rioting (take notice, WVU). Come Thursday night, (it)spills its students onto State and Mifflin streets, which we call Lager Nirvana.

You do realize that Playboy chose Marquette as the Best Catholic Party School...that has to count for something.

Oh, how MU has declined.  In the seventies, MU was not mentioned in this list, but then in a footnote, the Playboy article said "Marquette University was not ranked because the author thought that it was unfair to rank professionals with amateurs."
You actually have a degree from Marquette?

No...and after reading many many psosts from people on this board that do...I have to say I'm MUCH better off, if this is the type of "intelligence" a degree from MU gets you. It sure is on full display I will say that.

And that is bullcrap.  That same story has been told about just about every university in the country.  There was never such a footnote - ever.  There was a reference to some university, (not Marquette) in a response to a reader's letter to the editor.  When I was at Marquette, we heard the same story about Wisconsin.

When I was at Marquette in the late seventies, it certainly seemed it could be true.  a top basketball team and a drinking age of 18 were HUGE advantages.  Of course, Wisconsin shared one of those advantages.

+1 and I wasn't even alive then.

There is nothing more ridiculous than when MU students today argue that we go as hard, or have the same identity that alums did back in the day.  Back then, MU had a much more slaberknocker, beer guzzling, keg in the dorm urinals feel to it.  Being uptown people was such a great classification because of the self aware irony of it all.  I'm not even necessarily criticizing, because that punch you in the mouth mentality just sort of has to begin to fade away with some of the academic concessions MU has made, but contemporary students need to acknowledge things just aren't like they were.
