TCS: Tech Central Station – The Ivy League’s Missed Connections: “”
It is as if perennial college football powerhouses like USC, Oklahoma and Miami were obliterated in national Bowl games by tiny programs not even ranked during the regular season.
i think the author greatly misses the issue. it isn’t that the powerhouses win at football, they still win at football, but any university might beat their ping pong team, because your money, reputation, or anything else doesn’t guarantee that you will have a good ping pong team, only the good people you have do and that is a problem at large institutions where you have more people and thus it is harder to concentrate really good technical people and technical systems because you will have more people and more people will usually approach normal instead of approaching greatness.
