At Notre Dame, Grades Do Matter

OK, here's the smart aleck comment of the day -- What's with Notre Dame? Heck, it can't even lead the nation in graduation rates, let alone football performance.

Sure, the football team is 8-1 and likely to make a BCS bowl. Yes, most of its athletic teams thrive at the highest levels.

Still, how can the Irish finish second to Navy in graduation rates? They have to be better than that. If you're not first, you're no where.

All right. I'm done venting. I needed a release after discoving the email I just got from a guy guaranteeing me 25 percent of 15 million sterling pounds (whatever that comes out to) was bogus. Anyway, Notre Dame continues to set impressive standards in the classroom as well as the athletic fields. For more on this, check out this Indianapolis Star story.
