Relating to prior posts on this blog here, here, and here, the Chronicle of Higher Education points out that Notre Dame demonstrates how athletic excellence need not always compromise academic excellence.
There is an old movie about the life of boxer Rocky Graziano called "Somebody Up There Likes Me." Coach Seth Greenberg of Virginia Tech could well riff with "Somebody Up There Hates Me." In their last four snubs, they have set records for most wins by an ACC team without being picked. Heck, this used to be considered the best conference in the country. Unfortunately even with 68 teams there are missteps and no one has succeeded (or to my knowledge even tried) to challenge the NCAA in their picks. Not a constitutional right, my friends.
