Gaming the U.S.News.com COLLEGE rankings

The case of Northeastern.  To get a sense of how nuts this is, note that at #49 in the USNews.com list, Northeastern ranks ahead of the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Washington in Seattle, both among the top 20 research universities in the United States by normal measures of academic excellence (academic reputation, research funding, membership in National Academies, citations, etc.).
