Cornell University Big Red
Cornell's varsity athletic teams consistently challenge for NCAA Division I titles in a number of sports, including men's wrestling, men's lacrosse, mens ice hockey, and rowing. The women's crew program is subject to the NCAA, while the men's rowing program is governed by its own administrative body, the Intercollegiate Rowing Association. Under the Ivy League athletic agreement, the university does not offer athletic scholarships for athletic recruiting. Cornell's football team had at least a share of the national championship four times before 1940 and has won the Ivy League championship three times, last in 1990. In 2010, the Cornell men's basketball team appeared for the first time in the NCAA tournament's East Regional Semifinals, known as the Sweet 16. It was the first Ivy League team to make the semifinals since 1979.
