FWIW, I think Penn lands Mike Wang. So, there's that.


Can't be right. He's from more than 100 miles outside Philly.

Mike, do you know if we(Penn) offered Ellis? Somebody said so on the Columbia board. That would be news to me, and bad news.

Mike Wang is an interesting prospect especially in Donahue mold of stretch 4 - 6'8" with a nice looking 3 point form with quick release. Would be a very nice pickup.

Sure hope Mike's wrong about Matt Cotton as that would be a real disappointment and especially bad considering how long Penn pursued him and since Yale only offered like a month ago.

What Penn can't afford is a total whiff of a class. That would be devastating to the chances of trying to get to higher level of HYP at the moment.

Maybe his cousin Armani has been talking to him. (NB: I have no idea if Armani and Matt are related. I just love the name Armani Cotton.)

Cheer up. Harvard is using a former Penn and Columbia investment manager to try to get its mammoth endowment on track after underperforming since the 2008 crisis. It might take a while--there is "inertia" in the portfolio, apparently. Another twenty years of underperformance and we'll all be nearly caught up!

Not going to happen in my lifetime.

Harvard is an amazing bargain even with that underperformance. My niece is a Senior at Harvard. My brother pays way less for a year at Harvard than a year at the university my other niece attends.

I once heard Leon Botstein describe Harvard as "a very large bank with a small education business attached."

FYI per a respected St. Joes poster who knows Matt Cotton personally:

"Matt is down to Harvard, Yale and Penn..."

He posted this in St. Joe's board as St. Joe's really wanted Cotton.
