Some Love From Cornell?

Cornell's student newspaper has once again lifted up Colgate as an example to the Ivy League on how I-AA football and NCAA playoffs are not incompatible with 1st class academics..

"In 2003, Colgate's football team advanced to the Division I-AA national title game. Colgate is virtually on par with the Ivies as an academic institution, and it's participation in the I-AA tournament did not serve as a detriment at all to its players' academic standing, while at the same time giving those student-athletes a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play on a national stage. There is no reason to believe that such an ill-effect would occur at Ivy schools either."

If I didn't hate them so much, I could kiss them.
