3 SEC Schools Make Playboy’s “Party School” List

So who do you think knows more about partying?  The folks at Playboy Magazine or the gang at The Princeton Review?

Last month, we told you that the Princetonians listed five Southeastern Conference schools among their top 20 party schools in the nation: Georgia (5th), Florida (6th), Ole Miss (14th), South Carolina (17th) and Tennessee (20th).

This week, Playboy took the wraps off — get it? — their list of the 10 best party schools in the nation.  Three SEC schools made their list:

 

1.  Virginia

2.  Southern California

3.  Florida

4.  Texas

5.  Wisconsin

6.  Georgia

7.  Vanderbilt

8.  Tulane

9.  TCU  (The administrators at Texas Christian have to love that one.)

10.  Ohio State

 

In a separate category, Playboy also ranked Texas A&M and Auburn among their top five for “Sporting Life,” which apparently means tailgating and partying before, during and after games.

Congratulations (?) to all those SEC schools who were recognized this year.

Welcome To The Big 12: TCU Drug Bust Nets Some Footballers

For the past few months, Big 12 officials have been trying to convince the world that they’d actually improved their league by replacing Texas A&M and Missouri (major combined media markets and AAU-member schools) with TCU and West Virginia respectively.  Wonder how happy interim commish Chuck Neinas is today with the news that a major drug bust has resulted in the arrests of 17 students and our Horned Frog football players at Texas Christian?

The six-month sting operation caught students selling marijuana, cocaine, Ecstasy and prescription drugs.  Yikes.

Ultimately, we’re talking about four members of an 85-man football squad.  It’s 17 students on a campus of 9,500-plus.  And to be honest, this kind of thing could have happened at any institution… including Mizzou, A&M or any other SEC school.

But it didn’t.  It happened at TCU.  It happened on the campus of the Big 12′s shiny, new toy.  It happened at the school that’s supposed to be the perfect replacement — the perfect upgrade! — to Texas A&M.

Nope.  Neinas probably isn’t too pleased to see this story in the day’s news cycle.  Not at all.
