Only two PL roster lists show majors, Colgate and Lehigh. Of the 40 jrs and srs at Colgate with declared majors, the breakdown is as follows 8 Econ/math econ, 6 history, 5 poly sci, 4 geology, 3 each for sociology and ed studies, 1 each neuroscience, afr. amer. studies, art & art hist., philosophy, psych, biology, peace & conflict studies, theater and latin. In short, almost exactly what one would expect from any random collection of Colgate students. Maybe a bit light on english and biology (pre-med) but given the sample size that is likely meaningless.

Without knowing much about Lehigh student's choices in majors, their break-down also looks like it matches up similarly to the overall distribution - 6 business majors of various types, 10 engineering majors of various types - no major with more than 3 players (mech eng.)

I would find this statement to be outright silly if it weren't for the fact that it maligns students that in my experience were as qualified as and worked as hard as, if not harder, than the overall student population. This isn't the SEC.

I was blowing smoke and was wrong.
