Since most of you on this board are old farts that would never read a website like Slate, I include the following link to an article about athletics (mostly football) at Wesleyan.

https://slate.com/sports/2017/12/wesleyan-university-football-is-good-business.html

I'm not sure what the author's point was supposed to be, but what I found interesting is the depiction of D-III football with something of a fan base. We bemoan the lack of interest in ivy football, but I think many ivy games (at least those involving HYP) have attendance that doubles or triples what the NEASAC schools pull in. I guess it's all relative (or biased by having stadiums that are now very oversized).

Yeah, I also saw this piece in Slate. It covers lots of issues that are relevant to the Ivies and will be completely unrecognizable to the factory conferences.

"I'm not sure what the author's point was supposed to be..."

Looks to me like the point was to divide people into ethnic/gender groups in order to be able to bash white males.

Par for the Slate course.

Alas, we old farts have better things to do than
don gay left-wing apparel of black masks,
shields and clubs to beat free speech a pulp.

That said, the article is interesting but familiar
territory to Ivy football fans.... same old on a lower
level. Go Lions!

In 2016 Wesleyan outdrew Brown in average attendance 5280 to 4419.
