March Madness Basketball Tournament Academic Rankings

I love march. I especially love the first round of the NCAA tournament. I spent all week last week distracted by filling out my bracket, and watching every basketball game (thanks to online streaming). I was thinking recently about the schools that have sent the teams to the tournament, and the only thing more competitive than sports between universities is their academic rankings. So we are at the Sweet Sixteen, how do these schools compare with each other??

Kansas: 104,
Richmond : 32 out of Liberal Arts Colleges
VCU: 167
Florida State: 104
Butler: 2 (midwest Colleges)
Wisconsin: 45
BYU: 75
Florida: 53

SDSU: 183
UConn: 69
Arizona: 120
Duke: 9
UNC: 30
Marquette: 75
Kuntucky: 129
Ohio State: 56

So there you have it!
