There continues to be no mention on the Williams homepage of the forthcoming ESPN College GameDay festivities. The fancy new athletics page does mention the story and provide a link to the full description. Why no link on the main page? Perhaps Director of Public Affairs Jim Kolesar is waiting for permission from Professor Cheryl “Nike Camp with enrichment classes” Shanks. Just wondering! It is almost as if the College administration is embarrassed by the event . . .

Speaking of relevant quotes from our Quote Wall, I always like:

If you wish to be happy for an hour, get intoxicated. If you wish to be happy for three days, get married. If you wish to be happy for eight days, kill a pig and eat it. If you wish to be happy forever, beat Amherst. — Mens Lacrosse Coach Renzi Lamb

It is the object of the College to make men. — President Mark Hopkins ’24

L.L. Bean yelling at J. Crew — Williams official [describing the razzing between Williams and Amherst basketball fans]

Any of these would have made for a better Homecoming t-shirt than simple-minded double entendres on “endowment.”
