Princeton is number one because they give full athletic scholarships. It's easy to win when you can "buy" your championships. Yeah I know Cornell is the poor dumb f..k of the Ivy League but at least we play by the rules.

If Princeton actually gives athletic scholarships, then why isn't their football team head and shoulders better any other Ivy team (unless you are saying that Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth and Penn are also giving athletic scholarships). You should also remember than Cornell did quite nicely against Princeton this year.

From WSJ article on Brevin White 4*

"In either sport, what has historically made attracting top-notch players to these schools difficult isn’t just the inferior facilities or lack of nationally televised games. Unlike almost every other Division I program, the Ivies do not offer athletic scholarships.

Instead, Ivy League schools only offer need-based financial aid to students. And they have stepped up those programs in recent years. For example, students in Princeton’s class of 2020 with family incomes up to $140,000 typically pay no tuition, according to the university. This applies to all students, not just athletes."

This point has been explained to Sprint dozens of times. He just doesn't get it.

Then again, it took him about five years to understand that the Ivy football teams just can't "drop to Division III" without taking the rest of the athletic department with them. (For those not familiar with NCAA rules, please google "Dayton Rule"). He hasn't make that complaint in a while, so perhaps he understands it now.

Sprint can't name a rule that prohibits giving a scholarship to any student whose family income is less than a certain amount.

He has always been a big advocate for reducing the financial burden of attending an ivy, such as by attending a community college the first couple of years, so it's odd he would oppose schools providing a scholarship to any student who is also an athlete.

Seems the Ivys just can't accept the notion that indexing is the better alternative to the use of "highly touted" investment managers. Not to pick on the woeful returns of Harvard's endowment but these two articles are certainly disconcerting.
