The missing ingredient to Beckett's success was found when Salovey became President of Yale five years ago. Salovey's predecessors were at best indifferent to athletics, or worse hostile to them. Once Beckett had an administration that fully supported his efforts the great successes that we Yale fans have enjoyed these last five years became possible.

The past one who will not be named, Was so smart he lost his common sense. He Was not able to comprehend the magnitude, in which sports plays with in the University,, Alumni, Community, ,City, suburbs .
In all intents and purpose the man was a buffoon . May we never speak of him again.

I thought Levin was a little too close to William Bowen who influenced Ivy athletic policy with his negative views on the place of athletics. Levin's daughter Sarah was listed as co-author of "Rclaimin the Game".

Levin's baleful influence on Yale's athletics program was exercised via his alliance with Bowen, who by Levin's tenure was at the Carnegie Foundation. Levin also had anti athletics acolytes spotted in high administrative and governance positions at the University, such as Univ Secty Linda Lorimer, and her husband, Trustee Chas. Ellis.

Good riddance to all of them, Beckett must have had the patience of Job to wait out these naysayers!!!
