As we noted in our last post, Google Maps lists the the University of Kentucky as Transylvania University (an actual university, also located in Lexington).

So what do you get when you search for the University of Kentucky? [1]
It is apparently located at a McDonalds on the edge of town.

This image is based on a search conducted on 11/8/2010 via Internet Explorer at the default North American opening screen with a clear cache and no cookies from an office within the University of Kentucky.

Or you could get a listing (see below) that ranks things
  1. Transylvania University
  2. U.K.'s Maine Chance Research Farm
  3. A location in Paducah, KY
  4. A location in Pikeville, KY
  5. The actual main campus of the University of Kentucky.
