Brown University Losing Its Edge?

National Review isn’t exactly considered the journal of record for the Ivy League. (William F. Buckley once famously commented that he would “rather be governed by the first 2000 names in the Boston phone book than by the 2000 members of the faculty of Harvard University”). However, last week’s dead tree edition of NR contained a line that may catch some folks a few years (or decades) removed from the college experience by surprise…

Columbia has been the cool school in the Ivy League for a while now, taking that title from Brown…
Is it really true, or is NR guilty of propagating a bit of New York hype here?

Possibly “cool” in this case is a euphemism for “liberal”.

If this means O’Reilly picks on Columbia instead of Brown, it’s all good.
When was the last time Columbia beat Brown on the gridiron, anyway?
