Are Ultimate players smarter?

On Page 7 of the Education Life Section of Sunday's New York Times there is an article titled "The Ultimate Influence", which contends that the best indicator of a university's excellence may be the quality of its Ultimate team! There is also a sidebar on why smart
people play Ultimate.

This all confirms things we already knew.

I think ultimate players are richer.

Ultimate players are more insecure?

Ultimate is compatible with a heavy academic load? Nobody told me that when I was at college - could be why I did so badly....

Obviously, you can't gauge someone's smarts from the school they graduated from: President George "strategery of mass destruction" Bush and John "botched joke" Kerry are graduates of Yale and clearly not the brightest bulbs on the block.

Or perhaps it's just that they weren't ultimate players (since the mind-sharpening sport didn't exist back when they were collegians...) History might have been so different if only ultimate had been invented a few years earlier!

Thank heaven I've been playing my whole adult life: my mental prowess has reached truly staggering proportions.

Yale is a lousy school.
