Hey. HEY! The only thing that's important is that UK made the List of Top Public Schools. It doesn't matter where we are on that list.
And yes, such rankings are nonsense. Also, while I haven't done a comparative study of the behavior of state legislatures, I can say that the perception among the faculty at UK is that the legislature remains relatively generous to UK, compared to other states and their flagship universities. There is less to say, I think, about the legislature's generosity to the rest of the public schools in the Kentucky state system.
