    From what I have seen people generally upgrade college when taking job as assistant prof or prof.

    That being said one of my prof in a no name colg did bs at Carnegie Mellon ms at mit and PhD at Stanford. But was prof at a no name colg and I was so grateful to have taken few classes under him.

      Exactly. And on top of that he worked at bell research lab (back in the day) and left as a fellow to take up teaching at my no name school.

    How the fuck can some kid who got a B in Calc I get grants or teach the actual class to anyone?

    What kind of a dumb question is this?

    A tenured professorship at a university--even a low ranked one--is a very cushy job.

    There is a huge difference between the median and top undergrads at MIT. The former are likely unqualified, while the latter (IMO perfect scorers/Putnam fellows) are stronger than most graduate students at tier 2 schools. I know by interactions with both.
