Does anyone know if Oregon or Stanford are hurt in BCS computer rankings by the fact that USC is unranked? When the computers assess Oregon's record, do they say that Oregon lost a close game to a 10-2 team, or do they see that they lost to a team out of the top 25? Just wondering.

By coincidence, the same author published a similar article in Slate today.I doubt at this point, though , that anyone going into a Ph.D. program is unaware of the job market situation. I suspect that most entrants understand that there is a very high probability that after graduation they will go through a long period of marginal employment and may not ever land a satisfying job in their field. The problem is that most young people going into Ph.D. programs already are...
