The Journal Gets it Right
Columbia Athletic Director Dianne Murphy and former Lion football great Marcellus Wiley are quoted prominently this morning in a Wall Street Journal article about Ivy sports. It's a great piece that achieves the rare feat of accurately depicting the goals most real Ivy sports fans have. I can only imagine how badly the New York Times would have handled the same story if it chose to care about Ivy sports again.
One surprise, at least for me, in the piece is the revelation that Dr. Murphy is against the idea of a postseason Ivy basketball tournament.
Hopefully, new Ivy League Executive Director Robin Harris will truly be listening to all the good arguments about the future of the league.
