As an increasing number of institutions move to virtual courses for the remainder of the academic year, the Ivy League has decided to shut down all athletic programming for this upcoming spring season.
We know you’ve been looking forward to this year’s men’s basketball superlatives! Senior Staffer Abby Rubel gives them out for the third year in a row.
Bummed about the disgustingly humid weather? Sports Editor Abby Rubel is here to cheer you up with the latest from Columbia Athletics. Women’s Soccer: The Lions (5-5-1, 2-1 Ivy) lost 1-0 against Penn (8-1-1, 2-0-1 Ivy) on Friday. The defeat drops them to fourth in the Ivy League, while Penn is now first thanks to […]
Sports Editor Abby Rubel brings you the athletics events to keep your eye on this weekend. Track and Field: Both the men’s and women’s track and field teams will compete at the NYC Armory this weekend–the only meet all season on the island of Manhattan. Student tickets are $10, but this might be your only chance […]
Yesterday, the Columbia football team pulled off a surprising (and not particularly notable) win against Brown in the last game of the season. Senior staffer Betsy Ladyzhets reflects upon the past season by examining how much money the CU Athletics department spent on promoting the team – and whether or not that investment was at […]
After months of receiving responses like “All information being provided is included in the release that was sent” (Laurence Bolotin), “It would be inappropriate for anyone from our Department to comment” (Athletics, full email after jump), and “you’re on Bwog I’m not gonna tell you anything, assface” (all our friends), we finally got an email […]
Bwog has obtained a memo sent from M. Dianne Murphy, the director of Athletics, to the head coaches of Columbia’s sports teams. In the memo, Murphy explains that someone sent her an anonymous email (and we thought we were the only ones getting anonymous tips) with photos of Columbia athletes “engaging in inappropriate activities” (i.e. […]
"The food [in Brooklyn] is good. I mean, the food is good everywhere, but [there] it's minus the pretense."
One professor is miraculously able to be an academic, administrator and mother – without a Time Turner. Another professor, after being educated around the world, pushes the limits of the normative, breaks ground on the topic of globalization, and successfully uses buzzwords while talking to the press. Men’s soccer pushes the limits of the acceptable win […]
Alan Brinkley is the most popular Columbia professor on Facebook. Columbia is trying to “ameliorate” tensions with the community. Columbia gets amazing athletic recruits, who eat McDonald’s every day, wear jeans so tight that their legs atrophy and smoke clove cigarettes. Statisticians: Here are all the sexy details about the rigorous lottery. Pity the first-year […]
Embracing all things collegiate, Bwog joined the class of 2012 last night in Roone Arledge Auditorium for Class Act: Advance Screening. Day One of NSOP challenged the wily troop of 12s with long lines, dorm room design, and familial farewells followed by awkward introductions and icebreakers. But no odyssey draws to a close without its […]
As those who watch the Olympics closely know, it abounds with the more obscure sports that only the Ivy League has enough money to field teams in. Not surprisingly, then, the Ivy League has fielded its fair share of Olympians over the years, even as other conferences have taken over the role of being the […]
Inexplicably, the Lions appear to be involved in a joint venture with Tic Tac at tonight’s game (they don’t say the sport in the hilarious press release, but Bwog will suppose it’s basketball). Coming soon: corporate naming rights for Baker Field? “Swish Undergraduate Athletics Center” has a nice ring to it. Long story made short: […]
