Tomorrow night the national collegiate football championship will be decided in a Bowl Championship Series contest at Pasadena's Rose Bowl Stadium. The Longhorns of the University of Texas and Alabama's Crimson Tide will be battling for the title. What will a victory do for the winning school? Among other things, it will mean that more students will send in applications--almost 10 percent more than the previous year. It doesn’t sound like rocket science, but two brothers researched the link and found a substantial connection between college applications and success of that college’s major sports teams.

How many concussions would you allow your child to have before you decided that perhaps he or she should retire from the travel soccer team? In the past month alone I have heard about several dozen injuries to young athletes, both on school and athletic teams, and I am starting to wonder just how many families are so obsessed with sports that the child’s health suffers.
