2012 Princeton Review Top Party Schools

The Princeton Review released the list of the top "party" schools today. Apparently, having your school in a town named after an ancient Greek City-State was a big factor. Complete list and analysis below the jump.
  1. Ohio University, Athens, Ohio
  2. University of Georgia, Athens, Ga.
  3. University of Mississippi, Oxford, Miss.
  4. University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa
  5. University of California Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, Calif.
  6. West Virginia University, Morgantown, W. Va.
  7. Penn State University, University Park, Pa.
  8. Florida State University, Tallahassee, Fla.
  9. University of Florida, Gainesville, Fla.
  10. University of Texas, Austin, Texas
  11. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
  12. Syracuse University, Syracuse, N.Y.
  13. Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, La.
  14. University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, Wis.
  15. DePauw University, Greencastle, Ind.
  16. Indiana University, Bloomington, Ind.
  17. Arizona State University, Tempe, Ariz.
  18. University of Maryland, College Park, Md.
  19. University of Vermont, Burlington, Vt.
  20. University of South Carolina, Columbia, S.C.
The Princeton review is just like the BCS - it's all a conspiracy. Nobody knows how their "computer rankings" work, and everyone knows the voters don't have time to go to all the parties. They probably just watch the highlights of the West Coast schools and don't get the real experience. There's clearly an East Coast bias at work here. Exhibit A: Ohio University. Really? Now, the Bobcats probably got the voters attention in 2010 with this epic beat down of Brutus Buckeye, but who really wants to go party at Ohio University? We here at Permanent Press would rather party with #TeamGarcia any time. Also, a little known factor is that having Stephen Garcia attend your institution gives you "Automatic Qualifier" status if your other rankings finish you in the top twenty-five overall. That's why the rankings just "happened" to come out concurrently with Garica's reinstatement. (Think Notre Dame in the BCS.)

Rather than just having the Princeton Review voters go into Conclave and then bring forth a list, PP would rather have a bracket of 64 schools in a single-elimination tournament to decide who is the best. Let's settle it on the field beer pong table, as gentlemen.
