I'm surprised that Villanova isn't on this list. Like Illinois, I would think that they'd want to clean up their image in the marketplace. I am actually of the belief that Illinois is one of the few schools that has data the market can trust now that they are under continuous, independent review.

Given it's just ousted dean, who never couched his words, shouldn't St. Louis be listed?

Perhaps there are more than a "few". I'll walk that back a bit.
