The article is from the HD - so the article understandably and justifiably possesses a Marshall slant, but all MAC schools received mention. <a href='http://www.herald-dispatch.com/2004/June/13/MUtop1.htm' target='_blank'>http://www.herald-dispatch.com/2004/June/13/MUtop1.htm</a>
"Two schools, Boston College and Northwestern, achieved a 100% graduation rate. Other schools joining Marshall on the honorable mention include Ball State, Bowling Green, Duke, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kansas State, Maryland, Memphis, Miami-Florida, Miami-Ohio, Nebraska, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma State, Rice, Southern Mississippi, Syracuse, Texas Tech, Toledo, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, West Virginia, and Western Michigan"
