Questions about USA Today
I have some questions about how important being named to the USA Today All American Team is. Now, don't get me wrong because I think it is a great honor, and many of the people that are named to the team are great people and have contributed to improve the University.
But, the question I have is how important are the rankings to other schools. For example, the University boasts that it has more people named to the team than any other university in the country. But, does Harvard actually care about how many people are named to the team? I don't know in all honesty.
I'm not taking away at all of the honor that these people deserve. I would love to be a USA Today All American. I'm just wondering how important these types of things are in the long run.
From the University's standpoint, I guess this can be used as a recruitment tool to help get more and better students to the University. That's always a plus. So, I guess these rankings do help us. I just think we may need to keep some of this in perspective.
