In Response to: Princeton Athletics

Published online Jan. 4, 2018

It’s too bad football isn’t a three-quarter game. If it were, and assuming the fourth quarter didn't make Columbia, Dartmouth, or Penn lose a game they would have won in three, instead of ending up in seventh place in the Ivy League this fall Princeton would have tied with Yale and Columbia for first place, each with a 5 2 record. As it was for the full games, Princeton ended up 2–5, with Yale 6-1 and Columbia and Dartmouth tying for second at 5-2. Princeton lost the Cornell, Yale, and Dartmouth games in the fourth quarter. What can our team do to build up its endurance?
