A Krafty Strategy?
Written by Bwog Staff
Robert Kraft’s recent donation to Columbia got the Lions some sort-of-big-time sports coverage. Gregg Easterbrook, who writes the 6,000- word Tuesday Morning Quarterback column for ESPN’s Page 2, wrote a paragraph on Columbia’s fundraising program.
Easterbrook writes that Columbia may be trying to move into the upper tiers of Ivy athletics by, like Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, schools he says are offering de facto athletic scholarships even though Ivy rules forbid them.
Kraft’s New England Patriots have also been accused of bending (or breaking) the rules, but are 6-0, while Columbia sits at 1-4.
