What is being unsaid is the value of admission. Admission to Princeton has incredible value so it is an inducement itself. Few, if any kids on Princeton, or Harvard or Yale or columbia, would have gotten in to their school w/o football. I know my son’s wouldn’t have. While it sucked to pay $50k+ for college, it was worth it when compared to the free education offered elsewhere. I can afford it thankfully, the people who get screwed are those that make just above the $ cut off, which is pretty low. They often can’t afford the cost of an Ivy.

Coach Coen is a great coach and person. Most 'football guys' really like him - including Surace, it appears. This comment was out of character and I would guess that it was caused by frustration about the beat down.

That said, I doubt that anyone has ever turned down playing for Nick Saban to join the Lehigh team. I believe that famously happened recently with a Princeton QB right? There are a lot of qualitative indicators that suggest Princeton has a huge recruiting advantage over Lehigh. Good for Princeton!
