We Are All Dave McKenna XXXVIII

Here's your daily link to Dave McKenna's brilliant "Cranky Redskins Fan's Guide to Dan Snyder," which we'll be posting until Snyder's dumbass libel suit visits Airstrip One's memory hole.


Today's topic: Selection Sunday. Namely, Snyder's lack of ties to it.

On the Forbes list of World's Billionaires, his education is listed as "U of Maryland, Drop Out." Not finishing what he started clearly didn't detract from Snyder's profitability or immature petulance. But what it did do was take away any alumni-related rooting interest in the greatest extended sporting-event in America.

Little matter, though, since the school away from which Snyder scurried doesn't seem poised to receive an invitation today. From the Baltimore Sun:

GREENSBORO, N.C. —Maryland had one more opportunity Friday night to get it right, one precious chance — in a meaningful game in March — to finally claim a memorable win against a ranked team while retaining a shred of hope of securing an NCAA tournament berth.

After having gone 0-6 against Top 25 teams, the Terps fell, 87-71, to No. 5 Duke in perhaps the costliest loss of all because it ended their ambitious goal of winning the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament as a seventh seed and claiming the conference's automatic NCAA bid.

Who knows, maybe the NFL-NFLPA dispute will bring about a system by which the Redskins could be relegated to the NIT, too.
