Another blog poses a possible new rankings system

Over at the Voir Dire blog, this proposal: have schools go mano-a-mano in a variety of moot court competitions, and rank the schools according to the student teams' success.

Here's what the post had to say (in part):

From my own days in law school I recall witnessing a lot of “David and Goliath” type scenarios - i.e. obscure, lower tier schools performing very well in these situations. Is there a source for this information (moot court competition rankings)? Would anyone find such information useful if it was available? It seems that this has “moneyball” written all over it....

Interesting idea, but I have a feeling self selection would be a major issue since the type of student attracted to moot court at "David" schools is likely very different than the type at "Goliath" schools.
