How many times have you wondered if University comes before or after a state name when referring to a college? Not many?
Okay, how many times have you heard someone call a school by the wrong name? Even the talking heads at ESPN get confused about it – and they very rarely correct themselves.

I provide for you today a .pdf list of the proper names of universities featuring only the name of the state and “University”.
Fortunately there are only four schools of formula [State Name]+[“University] – Indiana University just happens to be one of them. When I hear “University of Indiana” it really grinds my gears. Hopefully this will help reduce confusion.
