This education is a cutthroat business. Those young men unable to master the basic educational task of placing a spherical object within a metal ring are consigned to the barren fields where they are attacked and beaten by the marginally more accomplished students from other schools, humiliated by young men running by them and carrying inferior quality balls that don't match the standards of sphericality required at the highest levels of educational attainment.
I hold no brief for UConn football. It is a sad delusion.
(And my own alma mater is proud of the fact that their gridiron
crew contingent made the playoffs a couple of years ago, which is an entirely different level of underachievement.)
... that's good at rowing?
MIT definitely has a football team, with a somewhat interesting history. Varsity since 1988. Rowing?
Fixed. Although there are also athletes there who compete in boats. And one current graduate student who notably quit the NFL recently.
