They rank schools several ways (golf first, balanced and academics first), which are described on this page.

The Gopher women’s team was ranked 197th in the “golf first” large school category, while several other Big Ten women’s programs ranked in the top 50: Ohio State 23rd, Michigan 27th, Michigan State 40th and Illinois 44th.Originally published by DK on August 20, 2007 at 6:14 pm
