From Frank Uible ’57:

Today is a sad one for about two score young men, Williams College (which ought to hang its figurative head in shame), the other member colleges of New England Small College Athletic Conference and general pedagogy – as on this date each NESCAC football team pares its 2009 football roster to 75 players by cutting young men who desire to participate in small college intercollegiate football and each of whom his respective college has the capacity to accomodate in that desire without subtantial incremental expense – all in compliance with the wrong headed conspiratorial NESCAC Rule of 75, a glorious triumph of contemptible petty politics over the worthy educational principle of fostering extra-curricular participation by the student body. Men, as an alum of Williams College I humbly apologize.
