Jim Cramer ranks 'Nova over Kentucky

This is mostly off topic, but it is quite amusing that of the 37 colleges that use "Wildcats" as their nickname, Villanova was the first school mentioned by the financial blowhard Jim Cramer in a ranting appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe program today.

Which school was Cramer's second thought as a basketball program called the Wildcats? Kentucky. Villanova basketball, it seems, has truly arrived.

Cramer, the theatrical host of the financial advice show "Mad Money" on sister network CNBC, had been brought onto the MSNBC set at 30 Rock to discuss rising energy prices and the taxation of domestic producers.

As he wound down from one of his classic fake meltdowns after being physically consoled by Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski, Cramer blurted that "wildcats are the answer, and not the Villanova kind or the Kentucky kind," referring to drilling for oil in previously unexplored areas.

The video is embedded below. The Villanova reference happens at the 1:10 mark.

Just because he said Villanova first doesn't mean anything about the basketball programs.
