Just in time for March Madness, Inside Higher Ed has released its brackets for the NCAA tournament, with a twist, ranking the teams according to academic performance. Carolina came out national champs, of course, leaving cross-town rival Duke in the dust at the Sweet 16 (where they were defeated by Villanova!).
While we’re tooting our horn, we’d like to point out that President Obama has picked Carolina to win the NCAA tournament, because, he says, we have “experience and balance.” (Uh, never mind that he also picked us to win last year, unsuccessfully.) And, might we add, Forbes says that Carolina has the most “valuable” team in terms of financial benefit to the school and the community.
Now if Ty Lawson would get his toe healed….Heal Toe. Go Heels.
