Indiana would can him at this point - let's see if Harvard can measure up.

It looks as if the grade point part of the NY Times recruiting story is moot at this point in time. " Mongo no wear big red H " now or ever. However Harvard's direct contact with recruits seems to cross a line recognized by the other Ivy coaches.

The idea of Harvard engineering a quick rise to basketball power house doesn't seem realistic. Just to become competitive is a slow uneven path where you try to get to .500 in the league then exceed it the following year. Just ask Joe Jones at Columbia.
