Vitale is close to apoplectic during this rant. The Colorado Buffaloes have three wins against Kansas State? A win over Missouri?

Gotta hand it to him. Vitale doesn't do that much yelling about these snubs and makes a pretty strong argument that these snubs require an explanation, because it just seems too apparent that Colorado, Virginia Tech and Harvard should have made it in this season.
