    It's an old fashion school rivalry. I was at Lehigh on a college tour with my son and they had a countdown clock for their next meeting with Lafayette. In men's tennis.

    I wonder how they will handle the Lehigh game. Hopefully it will be played.

    Dixie State University in Utah (of all places) is considering changing their name because Dixie was/is a nickname for the South during the Civil War and afterwards. This story has nothing to do with Covid-19, but I thought I'd share it anyway. https://www.stgeorgeutah.com/news/ar.../#.Xv8LEIjYq00

    And the Broncos started off really well in baseball too. They had a winning record (9-5) before the season was halted due to Covid 19. And that's saying a lot for a program that was nixed nearly 40 years prior. Fortunately Boise State is going to honor their scholarships, although I'm guessing most of the players will transfer elsewhere to pursure their collegiate baseball dreams.

    Speaking of the Ivy League, there was a gal from my high school who went to Princeton. During her four years in HS she spent most of her free time reading. At lunch she was reading, on the bus to track & field meets she was reading. etc. She scored really high on her entrance exams and was our valedictorian. She did volunteer work and was a very good distance runner as well. Her father was a Colonel and a pilot in the USMC. And even with all those things going for her she barely got into Princeton. She survived the Ivy League and went on to get her Medical degree at the University of New Mexico. I was in Albuquerque a few years back to see my alma mater San Jose State play the UNM Lobos in football. I was walking by the hospital on my way to get dinner and she called my name. Well, we talked for a little while and she told me that going to Princeton was very hard and very stressful. But she made it through and went on to become a Doctor who spends most of her time working on a Navajo reservation in New Mexico. I'm not jealous of students at the Ivy League and the Hidden Ivy schools. I really admire their dedication!

    No offense to Mankato, but the academic rigor may be slightly different in the Ivy League than there. I agree with the context of not letting any sport compete for a championship if you are going to use academics as a reason but trying to compare Mankato to Ivy Leagues is like comparing apples to trucks.
    MSU doesn't even rank in the top 5 for academic rigor in MN. Don't get me wrong, it's a great school in its own right and serves a vital purpose - but it's not even remotely comparable to anything the Ivy's have to offer.

    Cornell is my #1 choice for grad school. I doubt that will happen - but I'm going to try anyway. MSU is the school I intend to go too if every other school in between won't accept me.
