The second football game was Princeton-Columbia a year later so let's celebrate that instead for a "150th." It's already on the two teams' regular schedule schedule, should be very competitive and keeps it in the Ivy League, which is a plus for me and the Ivy.

The Harvard/McGill contests in May of 1874 were the first games similar to today's football; i.e., you could pick up the ball and run with it, instead of just kicking it, and there were 11 men to a side. Close to today's rugby.

The NCAA cares only that men should share toilets and locker rooms
with girls. In the USA. The jihadists have won.

The NCAA is too busy making sure boys and girls shower, dress and go to the potty together. Obviously, spectators must go to the potty together too. But I understand: This will increase attendance beyond belief. People who don't know what a football or basketball IS, will flock to games just to meet the opposite sex in the restrooms. This dwarfs the NCAA's other brilliant
strategies such as one and done.
Strangers will be sitting on each other's laps in stadiums. Diversity! (Each must buy a ticket of course.)
