    Yeah. #110 is no 3 minute Google project.

    I'm gonna laugh when Myerberg is super optimistic about Kansas and they are at like #74.

    Names that haven't been called yet (and aren't Kansas) that did poorly last year:
    Southern Miss
    Boston College
    Texas Tech
    Hawaii
    Army
    New Mexico
    Buffalo

    I'll guess with Southern Miss on the back of a winless season.

    I'm getting excited. If GT can just avoid being mentioned for 10 more days, it will mean we're in the Top 100.

    I've mentioned Buffalo and Hawaii. But I'm sticking with Manhattan Kansas.

    You were correct.

    "— Who is No. 108? The highest peak in this university's home state is named after a West Point graduate whose middle name doubles as a famous street in Brooklyn."

    All I know, it's not Kansas because I don't know anyone with the middle name of Sunflower.

    flatbush is the street that comes to mind, but doubt that is a middle name

    EDITS:

    *Arizona's tallest peak is Mount Humphrey's named after West Point Grad Andrew Atkinson Humphreys but neither Arizona nor ASU are bad enough and i dont think Atkinson is popular street in Brooklyn

    I'm going to say University of New Mexico.

    Edit: Guess I should back that up. Tallest peak in NM is Wheeler Peak, named for George Montague Wheeler (who is a West Point grad) and there is a Montague St in Brooklyn. Now is that a famous street? Hell if I know.

    you just beat me to it with the state but NM State was worse than NM last year. Wheeler Peak in NM is named after George Montague Wheeler, West Point grad. Montague Street is a popular street in Brooklyn

    I knew I wrote that wrong, just didn't feel right as I typed it.

    Bob Dylan and other hipsters of his time hung out at Capulet's on Montague Street, in Brooklyn Heights. Dylan mentions the street in the song Tangled up in Blue

    Doesn't count since you didn't know the answer to the question, what team.
