Are you serious, Clark?

People love to say Notre Dame doesn't matter anymore. But a deal with the ACC that allows it to keep its football independence is proof the Irish are relevant.

Quotable:

Long considered one of the best academic institutions in the world, Harvard has been improving in athletics as well, winning the Ivy League title in football last year and reaching the NCAA basketball tournament for the first time in 46 years.

But the unprecedented cheating scandal and the reported link to some of the school's top athletes raises the question of whether success in sports has required academic compromise at the institution that, on the list released Wednesday, placed first in the annual U.S. News & World Report college rankings for the fifth consecutive year.

Harvard President Drew Faust was not immediately available for comment Wednesday. But she said last week that the yet-unproven allegations, "represent totally unacceptable behavior that betrays the trust upon which intellectual inquiry at Harvard depends." Faust also alluded to the scandal in last week's convocation for the incoming freshman, quoting a letter sent to them by undergraduate dean Jay Harris that said, "Without integrity, there can be no genuine achievement."

"That is what each of us owes to Harvard," she told the students when she welcomed the Class of 2016 to campus. "But, far more importantly, it is what each of us owes to ourselves."
