We believe this started after upgrading sccm to sp1.  There's now a collection that is just greyed out and it's as if we don't have rights to edit or delete it.

Are you talking about SCCM 2012 SP1 Beta? And the collection in question is a default buit-in collection?

If yes then please be aware that MS has grayed out built-in collections.
Those are read-only and cannot be modified.

I don't think it's sp1 beta, but yes, sccm 2012 sp1.  Yes, it seems the collection was a default built-in collection that we had edited and renamed.  and like you say, ms has made them read-only.  But ms didn't rename it back to the default name.  I'm not sure if the membership rules got reset back to default.  Anyways, do you happen to know of a way to rename the collection back to it's default name?  I looked briefly but didn't come up with anything

The collection name is just one of its attributes.
It could be the case that during upgrade SCCM took all the build-in collections (found them by their SIDs) and locked them out. Most likely MS made a decision not to revert their attributes to default while doing so.

If you need you may roll-back the upgrade , get everything you need out of that collections and create custom ones and upgrade again.

From my (somewhat limited) experience with SCCM I can tell that using build-in collections is dangerous. They are basically only useful for reporting purposes.
