Hey, it works for Hogwarths!
(Frank) Ryan attended graduate school during the first part of his playing career, and in 1965, he earned his Ph.D. from Rice. His thesis was titled, "Characterization of the Set of Asymptotic Values of a Function Holomorphic in the Unit Disc." He started teaching at Rice during his career and, during his time with the Browns, held a position as an assistant professor at the Case Institute of Technology, teaching undergraduate courses and conducting research in complex analysis.
Ryan’s second career was fodder for many jokes by sportswriters. Red Smith wrote that the Browns' offense consisted of a quarterback who understood Einstein’s theory of relativity and ten teammates who didn’t know there was one. Ryan was somewhat put off by the focus on his academic life, as he considered himself to be a regular football player.

It's one of my pet peeves about the Harry Potter series. There's quite a tendency for characters to be labeled good guy/bad guy by the author simply putting them in an easily identifiable group. That and the tendency for Harry Potter to be the center of attention of every event, no matter how insignificant, and all events being relayed in the context of how they relate to Harry Potter. It makes late-1980s WWF usage of Hulk Hogan look conservative by comparison.
OK, I'll bite. Who's smaller? Northwestern?
When I went there, I was in Hufflepuff.
They've been making those same jokes for years about UC San Diego, which also "sorts" students into six colleges that are unrelated to major but do have themes.
