Headlines: BCS Academic National Champions

HD continues to show her incompetence ... (emphasis ours)

"Yes, every now and then I read your comments, and thanks to one of the blog readers for providing this educational link from the New America Foundation.

The Higher Ed Watch posted its second annual Academic Bowl Championship Series Rankings, and Boston College won again. Virginia Tech came in 10th. Georgia Tech was the only other ACC team that made the top 25.

What's amazing is that those are also the only three ACC teams ranked in the real BCS Standings. It can be done."

What she fails to realize is that article ONLY re-ranks the programs that are IN the next-to-last BCS Standings. That's why "those are also the only three ACC teams ranked in the real BCS Standings."

Duh.

Amazingly, in that same post, she notes that Duke has the same rate as BC, but still doesn't pick up the inconsistency with her earlier point. This is really supporting the theory that she is just intellectually lazy and just "mailing it in."
