Currently and historically, Cornell has one of the best hockey programs in the country--men and women alike. Likewise for wrestling.

Cornell hockey and wrestling teams compete and win at the highest levels of their sports.

While the criticisms leveled against football, basketball and lacrosse are spot on, remember Lincoln's response to criticism of Grant's drinking: "Find out what he drinks and send a bottle to all my generals."

Maybe the deep thinkers at Cornell should have a little chat with those who run the hockey and wrestling programs.

Cornell recently won the Ivy wrestling title for the umpteenth time, and this weekend took the Easterns. My boys placed second in the former and third in the latter and were close to taking second there too.

Despite all the yelling and screaming about athletics being antithetical to scholarship, the three best schools in the country have arguably the best athletic programs, i.e., Princeton, Stanford and Harvard.

What I really like is the wide range of intercollegiate sports that are available at our schools. And while it is usually, but not always, in sports with a lesser of school participation nationwide than, say football or basketball, a number of Ivy teams make noise nationally every year.

In my opinion all Ivy's should have a wrestling team.
