    Good question, I'll try to dig it up.

    It's hard to put how much a team makes into dollars and cents.

    If a school has a very vibrant sports team for whatever sport that attracts a lot of people and leaves them with positive impressions, the alumni might be more likely to donate later in their lives.
    My school was made of very smart people, but more than that, they were all interesting and brought some unique aspect to the school.

    I actually know a guy who's just 19 years old who's starting Yale next year - he's a GM in chess and played in the world chess olympiad last year for the US
