I'm gonna freakin' puke next time I hear one of these news-chickens refer to dook as "an Ivy League school".

Last time I checked, dook competes in the Atlantic Coast Conference (a.k.a. the ACC).  Same as they have for the last 40+ years.  Ivy League Schools are so-called ONLY because they compete in the ACTUAL Ivy League.

Yes, the name is synonymous with excellence in education, but that doesn't mean that a school with a reputation for fine academics and located on the East Coast is AUTOMATICALLY an Ivy League School.

I thought they were in the Tobacco League.

They have classes at Duke? I thought they were just a minor league basketball team that produced NBA busts. Huh, go figure

I always thought of Duke as being a kudzu covered school. And as long as half the school, including the women, have that round worn spot on their pants pocket then the rest of the country will never understand.

You seem to be expecting accuracy from our media. Why is that?

USC is an Ivy League school, too.

ACTUALLY, the original IV League was Columbia, Harvard, Princeton and Yale. ~1900. Ivy League (inflated to twice as many schools) began ~1940.
