Contrary to Observer's snark, it is worthwhile to look back on past glories--not all of them arising from New Haven--and contemplate where our League's football teams might be today were it not for a combination of NCAA money grabbers and spineless Ivy presidents who combined to eject the founders of the sport from their rightful places in football's top echelon. Resort to the history books shows that of our eight teams, six are former national champs, and Columbia won a Rose Bowl,. Brown had the first African-American superstar (and its own trip to the Rose Bowl). In 1981, we needed a Messiah to eject the money changers from the temple, but instead were betrayed by the triumvirate of Bok, Bowen and Giamatti.
