Militarism grips Ivy League

Written by

Not content with battling it out in the U.S. News and World Report rankings, the Ivies are throwing it down by way of that most gentlemanly of pastimes: war! Or rather, inter-campus computerized simulations of games that simulate war! Kind of!

Our buddies at GoCrossCampus have organized an Ivy League championship. While Columbia hasn’t won a single outright basketball or football championship in the League, we all know that cross-country Risk is the glamour sport of the future. So take up arms, Columbians! Let our arrows blot out the sun! We’ll make Princeton pine for 1777! Hoohah!

  3. the truth  

    there will be no day more glorious than when the legions of Columbia march into Harvard Yard and destroy the statue of John Harvard and replace it with a replica of Alma Mater....

  4. ridiculous

    Our extensive knowledge of ancient Greek military history should give us the edge, obviously. Join the ranks, Columbians!

  8. Columbiatch  

    John Harvard's statue shall give Alma head. No quakers, dogs-with-melting-faces, or tin cans shall stand in our way!

  9. well bless my soul

    sweet jesus, someone might think they SHOULD be taking classes with us!

  10. If we  

    enslave the barbarians to the North, our legions shall be invincible!
