Coach Cozza was "explicit" in his autobiography, but not in the way insinuated by Go Green. Here are a few of his observations:

"In all my years at Yale, we received only one sanction from the NCAA, and that was because of a well-meaning alumnus in a Midwestern city who broke a minor rule without realizing it." (117)

"It is important to note that we never tried to sneak a kid into Yale who didn't belong. I never once sought the admission of a young man I didn't think could do Yale work. Not once" (195)

Four Rhodes Scholars and scores of former players who became doctors, lawyers and bankers bear out the truth of those statements, it seems to me.

If you have the book handy, you'll find extensive passages where Cozza says he clashed with the Yale admissions people.

One (of many) instances was Cozza attempting to meet Yale's AI averages by bringing in 1600-SAT guys as "recruits" who barely played on their high school teams to justify the admissions of guys with lower scores. Yale's admissions department wouldn't let him do it.
