To Brown's significant credit, whatever else they may have done, they are not taking their cues from the factory schools and engaging in a race to the bottom. I'm for a responsible "balance" (whatever that means subjectively) between academics and athletics. I was formerly in the administration at Brown and have a feel for the place. Based on that, I expect that when B moves to reinforce its athletic programs, it will do so in a sensible way.

Some Ivy presidents like Martha Pollack at Cornell believe if a school is really bad at sports then that will some how raise our academic ranking???? Meanwhile schools like Yale have recently won NCAA titles in both hockey and lacrosse, along with last fall's Ivy League title in football. Harvard has dominated Ivy League football over the past twenty years. At least at Cornell it's really too bad we lost President Elizabeth Garrett to cancer as she really wanted to improve athletics and student life at Cornell, where Martha Pollack thinks our students should be buried in their lap tops or debating her ultra liberal politics.

I think that Cornell's a preeminent school that has high quality and huge range, but you're in Ithaca . . . like Madison . . . like Bezerkeley . . . et al. Uber-liberal zip code . . . uber-liberal prez, no?
