So what is going on with Princeton sports? Despite a quality coaching staff and solid athletic administration, Princeton football suffers a losing season, placing ahead of only Cornell and Columbia in the Ivy League; men’s basketball extends its streak to 12, losing to Lehigh, which hadn’t beaten Prince-ton since the Great Depression; women’s basketball loses seven straight games; and wrestling has to forfeit three weight classes. Athletic teams must fill their rosters with talent to be successful. Could it be that admissions have taken a turn since the retirement of Dean Fred?
