Default What is THE number one University?

So, I was thinking today which University/College was THE big man on campus that fits all the following criteria:

1. Athletics - Successful in the Big Three: Basketball, Baseball, Football.
2. Prestige - Ivy League would score high in this category.
3. Size - Ivy League would score low in this category.
4. Academics
5. Community - School is part of the community and not just set off somewhere by itself.
6. Diversity - More than just white folk.
7. Location - School is in a fun college town or large city.
8. Recognition - Everyone has heard of it.

I'd like to make some sort of scoring sheet and come up with my final answer to the question. I just want some input on schools. Here's a selected list thus far that fits the criteria for the most part, feel free to add on:

Air Force
Alabama
Arizona
Army
Boston College
California
Duke
Florida
Georgetown
Georgia
Georgia Tech
Harvard
Illinois
Indiana
Kentucky
LSU
Miami
Michigan
North Carolina
Notre Dame
Ohio State
Oklahoma
Penn State
St. Johns
Syracuse
Tennessee
Texas
UCLA
UCONN
USC
Wisconsin
Yale

when you number things (assmunch) it implies importance and/or order (dickhead)

also, why does a school have to be "big" to score high on the size requirement? some people find that a smaller school is better.

Or CAL

I think athletics means zilch as far as the bigger question.

MIT and Stanford make a real impact on our world. (Technology and advances in Medicine are at the top of my criteria)

I don't think you can allow any Ivy League schools, as the diversity they have is only there because of affirmative action. I believe Cal Tech is still the smartest and most difficult school to get into.
