I guess the fact that Virginia Tech still has connectivity via MCI
even if Sprint has a routing flap, and vice-versa, is just a hallucination
on my part.

Yes, you get more reliability with 2 T-1s instead of 1 to an upstream
provider.  But you get even more if the 2 T-1s go to different providers
and you have good fall-over routing.
