As someone who was a history/political science major in undergrad and who is now in law school, I would argue that UVA is a much more important school academically.
Dominate The State
Judges, lawyers and politicians are pretty good professions too... Love the hate on UVA lol It's a great school
WE ARE! And we will always be...
We will see if those reports are true. They certainly might be, but I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't.
Here ya go, if VaTech gets in the B1G I will buy you two tickets to the game the first time they play at PSU. On me, I'll try to get you solid seats as well, not just stick you in the corner.
You owe nothing in return when this never happens.
In my opinion, UNC and UVA would probably make the Big Ten the premier lacrosse conference...not that anyone cares.
Rutgers (decent) and Maryland (perennially good) make a solid five-team league with PSU, OSU and Mich. UVA and UNC are very good on a yearly basis.
What is "lacrosse"?
And men's and women's soccer and field hockey.

If you measure professions by how much those in it line their pockets, then yes I would have to agree. Judges, lawyers, and politicians are "pretty good professions." :-)
Seriously though, it's no secret that the B1G is heavily focused on engineering. 7 B1G schools are in the top 25 (would be 8 with VT) -- 9 in the top 30.
It's not "hate" on UVA. It's just that an engineering research institution (that get research $$$, that can then be shared) is the academic profile of the B1G. Even if you feel Judges, lawyers, and politicians are "good professions," liberal arts is not the academic profile of the B1G. Adding a liberal arts school does very little, from an academic perspective, for the B1G.
You are way too fixated on this engineering thing. That has nothing to do with anything. You could just easily state good business schools.
GT would blow as an addition, even though I wouldn't mind playing them OOC in football every 10 years or so.
I am rooting for UNC and UVA (and that is assuming TX and ND are out of the equation). Part of me wants to stay where we are at for now too, but blowing up the ACC sounds like too much fun.
A Buick :)
You made me laugh with that one. And I actually like lacrosse.... played it in high school.
Haha. I honestly debated about posting for about five minutes because I knew I was going to get a sarcastic response from someone.
Ah I just like messing with Andrew, he's a good guy. Lacrosse is interesting but we don't really have it out here, especially growing up. From what I've heard though its growing quite fast up north in the 'burbs. Seems like a great sport for kids to get into. Hopefully by the time I'm having kids we'll have that so I don't have to put them into soccer.
Are you serious?! UVA is one of the top schools on the country bar NONE. There might be 1 or 2 schools that are better academically in the B1G.
But not in engineering. You're missing the point.
Strangely, its really taking off where I am in Texas. Certainly surprised me.
It's all about the $$$, and other than medical research, engineering research is where the academic $$$ is. We know how much the B1G likes money.

Easily the fastest growing sport in the country. We had around 100 varsity teams when I started playing in high school in 2005, now theres 190 in New Jersey.
California, Colorado, Texas all have growing HS followings. Michigan just went Division I last year.
Is it cool if I call it "running hockey" instead of lacrosse? Doesn't sound so fancy.
At my sons school more kids try out for "latosse" than football!
Yeah, you can call it whatever you want, I'm sure someone would understand what you were talking about if you tried to describe 'running hockey.' There are actually a lot of aspects of basketball when it comes to offensive sets and defensive formations, but the goals, goalies, penalties and changing on the fly definitely have their hockey aspects.
It really is an awesome sport when you figure out the gist of the game and the rules. I only started playing in 2005 (have been playing hockey since '92 when I was three) and I play more lacrosse than I do hockey now. Awesome way to keep in shape, especially running midfield.
There's constant action for the most part, usually high scoring and lots of contact. As a spectator watching a high-level lacrosse game is very entertaining.
So does anyone think this article is legit? Aka UVA is coming early this week?
I agree. The first time I watched it was in 88' here in Denver because my brother-in-laws played. My youngest son wanted to play and he use to call it "catchie stick!" He decided to play hockey.
