I think we’d all be better off if, when it came to reviewing prospective students, colleges were more interested in whether someone participated in sports. And a lot less interested in how well they performed. And for those students who don’t do sports at all, it would be nice if the cross-country coach went around campus knocking on people’s dorm rooms and saying: “A couple hundred of us are going out for a run later. Do you want to join us?” ….More.
