This quiz nuttier than a Payday bar!!
Sep 23rd, 2009 at 23:29 GMT
you should specify sport... because in basketball, the State University of New York at Albany, State University of New York at Binghamton, etc. should qualify

Missing Cal State-Bakersfield.
Sep 24th, 2009 at 01:26 GMT
trying to fix it but apparently there are still some bugs to work out, because everytime it starts deleting more rows...
Sep 24th, 2009 at 01:30 GMT
Think I got it. Thanks
Sep 24th, 2009 at 12:14 GMT
A few which should qualify (although two can be bonuses since "State" isn't in their well-known nickname): Winston Salem State University counts for the time being; they are currently in Division I as a member of the MEAC, but will be headed back down to the CIAA and Division II after this year. While commonly known as North Carolina A&T, its full name is North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. And the school we all know as Virginia Tech is actually Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
Sep 24th, 2009 at 16:52 GMT
Thanks for the input....I'll add WSSU. I'd like to put the other two on as bonus too, but I can't figure out a way to do that with the make-your-own quiz yet...
Sep 24th, 2009 at 23:33 GMT
According to the FAQ, you just have to put "ee" in that third column for them to be bonus answers.

Bowling Green State

Stephen F Austin State University
Sep 26th, 2009 at 05:13 GMT
Having to type in the word "state" is a hassle. We know the University's name will have state in it; why make us type it?
Sep 26th, 2009 at 06:46 GMT
If you accept SUNY you should accept CS.
Sep 26th, 2009 at 17:42 GMT
thanks for the feedback guys...I am not pro at this....I'm trying to fix all the errors
Sep 26th, 2009 at 17:48 GMT
really can't believe I forgot BGSU....jmarshall, what is CS?
Sep 26th, 2009 at 18:51 GMT
California Polytechnic State University
Sep 26th, 2009 at 19:38 GMT
I'm not sure I understand why North Carolina A&T and Virginia Tech are bonuses, but the SUNY schools, which in athletics are normally called just Albany, Binghamton, Buffalo, and Stony Brook, are included in the regular bits.
Sep 27th, 2009 at 01:33 GMT
I see your point, but I did that on the basis that at least a decent amount of the time I hear SUNY Buffalo, SUNY Albany, etc., but I almost never hear anyone refer to Virginia Polytechnic and State University, etc. It's kind of a grey area in my opinion...
Sep 28th, 2009 at 01:55 GMT
Lack of accepted abbreviations! "Miss Valley State" Also NC State is accepted but not "SC State?"
Sep 28th, 2009 at 21:21 GMT
never got cresit for the SUNY schools
Sep 28th, 2009 at 21:36 GMT
There isn't such a school as Cal Polytechnic State University. Cal Poly is another system in California similar to Cal State and UC. There is a Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (the Cal Poly that plays D1) plus there is a Cal Poly Pomona.

I didn't think so but I researched bc of the comments and found this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Polytechnic_State_University

Utah Valley State changed their name in 2008 to Utah Valley University, so they don't really belong on this list anymore.
Sep 30th, 2009 at 02:05 GMT
Missing "South Carolina-Upstate", "Austin Peay State", and "Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey"
Sep 30th, 2009 at 02:41 GMT
I'll add APSU....I don't think USC upstate qualifies because it has to contain the word "state" exactly, not a word that has state in it. As for Rutgers, is that the school's official name? I hear it a lot but I wasn't sure if it is actually an official part of the name. I typically hear just "Rutgers University" as the more often used names. If the long version is official, then it probably belongs with virginia tech in the bonus answers
Sep 30th, 2009 at 21:30 GMT
One more vote for Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
Sep 30th, 2009 at 21:31 GMT
And one more vote for not having to type the word "state" every single time.

Question for those of you who want answers accepted without having to retype state over and over: Should that be the case for all of them, even if it's a different school without the word state in it? For example, accepting "Kennesaw" for Kennesaw State poses no problems, but should "Michigan" be accepted for Michigan State, seeing as how the two school are totally different? Part of me feels like it should not be accepted since the schools are obviously different, but then another part of me feels the need to be consistent, and that because it is a state school quiz, it should be implied that when Michigan is typed, it refers to Michigan State. Maybe I'm over thinking it, but input would be appreciated.
Oct 3rd, 2009 at 21:32 GMT
I missed a school to which I applied. Fail.
Oct 9th, 2009 at 16:54 GMT
Still missing SUNY Stony Brook.
Oct 16th, 2009 at 23:41 GMT
Oct 17th, 2009 at 01:06 GMT
Umass doesn't contain the word state
Oct 21st, 2009 at 13:55 GMT
A lot of other college sport quizzes just require st. Maybe that would be a good compromise
Oct 22nd, 2009 at 05:53 GMT
East Carolina Upstate.
Oct 28th, 2009 at 01:59 GMT
if you are talking about South Carolina Upstate (since I don't know of an East Carolina Upstate that exists), it was already brought up and determined it doesn't belong. Upstate does not = state.
Nov 18th, 2009 at 03:03 GMT
winston salem is d2 now. you should drop them
Dec 18th, 2009 at 06:38 GMT
they are d1 the rest of this year, so I'll keep there there for now
Apr 4th, 2010 at 16:16 GMT
Utah Valley State? Also, WSSU plays a D1 basketball schedule in the MEAC.
Jul 7th, 2010 at 20:07 GMT
Technically, University of South Carolina-Upstate should count.
