A lot of movement among elite public programs(Washington dropped 9 spots in 23 years, Arizona dropped 7 spots and Indiana/UCLA dropped 3 spots) to make way for the mobility of the elite private programs (NYU jumped 20 spots, Princeton moved up 16 spots, Duke moved up 5 spots).
Other schools fell off harder...Illinois program imploded, Stony Brook fell off, Johns Hopkins dropped 9 spots)
A lot of stability....
Texas, Penn State, Ohio State, Minnesota are about where they've always been. As are the traditional VHRMs - Chicago, Wisconsin, Harvard, Michigan, UNC, Stanford. The Northwestern, Columbia, UPenn....Cornell group is about where they've always been also.
