Smart School Count: Annually TMQ notes it is a fallacy that colleges must have low standards to do well in the "revenue sports," football and basketball. Quite the contrary, colleges with high standards for academics and personal character also enjoy strong athletic results. In 2010, the football teams of Air Force, Army, Boise State, Boston College, BYU, Georgia Tech, Navy, North Carolina, Northwestern, Stanford, TCU and Wisconsin -- all schools with selective admission and high academic standards -- made bowl games. The football teams of Lehigh, Villanova, Washington & Lee, Wheaton of Illinois, William & Mary and Wofford -- also with selective admission and high standards -- made the Division I-AA or Division III playoffs. Penn and Williams, both elite colleges, would have advanced to the football playoffs, if the Ivy League and New England Small College Athletic Conference did not prohibit member schools from sending their football teams to the postseason.
