Kind of random but I was an athlete in a non-revenue driving sport and I would say our league was pretty competitive. However, I've noticed that for the revenue-driving sports like basketball that our colleagues at Harvard and Yale consistently get better recruits and fare better on a national stage. Given the league's stance on scholarships, wouldn't you expect more parity?

Harvard had a top 10 recruiting classes a few years ago for basketball.

Yale has a recent lax and hockey title
