March Madness at FrontPage Magazine

FrontPage Magazine is having its own March Madness tournament to decide who is America's worst professor.

Free registration is required.

Michael Bérubé, an English professor at Penn State University (he was formerly at my alma mater, the University of Illinois) is leading the pack, and the strength of his effort has vaulted Penn State into first place in the teacompetitionon.

Good news for Penn State, since it's usually a bystander in that "other" March Madness.

Regular visitors to Marathon Pundit will recognize quite a few of the names in the elite field of awfulness.

Among the profs I've blogged about in the tournament are Noam Chomsky, Ward Churchill, Sami al-Arian, Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn, Ron (Maulana) Karenga, and Mark LeVine.

Chicago's DePaul University, one of my favorite blogging subjects, has two entrants in the tournement: Norman Finkelstein and Aminah Beverly McCloud.

Good luck. And may the worst professor win!
