We all get your emotional investment in Cornell and frustration with Harvard, but there's no reason to make exaggerated and fact-free accusations (there's enough to critique them on that we know about).

1) Most of those Harvard players listed are merely in training camp and will not make an NFL roster. As of today there are 5 Harvard players on an NFL roster who have actually played in the League (Brate, Easton, Fitz, Ott,
Juszczyk) and are likely to remain for this season.

2) North Dakota has many more players drafted or playing in the NFL than Harvard.

3) Villanova has 5 NFL players.

4) There are 7 players from Montana. http://fftoolbox.scout.com/nfl_draft/profiles_by_team.cfm?school=Montana

5) In 2016, JMU had 5 NFLers (don't know about 2017). http://jmusports.com/news/2016/9/7/football-five-former-dukes-with-nfl-franchises-for-2016-season.aspx?path=football

Unless you are running for office, let's stick to facts, however inconvenient they may be (just to cite an old Harvard guy).
