Well, at least the Ivy League is finally good at something. It only took 400 years.
Back to the topic: the New York Times has published a series of articles on the surging competitiveness of Ivy League athletics, and how the institutions have found ways to funnel money to create de facto athletic scholarships on a scale and breadth that (seemingly) had not been in place until recently.
I think it's terrific--and reasonable--that Ivy League basketball should be able to compete outside of itself. But I do not think it's terrific that its top teams should be able to compete with the ACC's mid-level programs. I'll have some cheese with that whine.
