Google Autocompleting the Pac-12


I thoroughly enjoyed Renee DiResta's Map of American Stereotypes Generated by Google Autocomplete, which my former Stanford Daily colleague Will Oremus featured on Slate. DiResta's idea was beautifully simple: Type "Why is [State] so" into Google and let autocomplete do the rest.

Why is California so liberal, broke, anti-gun and expensive? Why is Kentucky so good at basketball, poor, boring and racist? Why is Virginia so boring, humid, strict and important?

Why don't I do this with the Pac-12?! Enjoy and feel free to share your own in the comments.
