In holding up to the bet placed before the annual Harvard-Yale football game, Yale has agreed to hire a black football coach. The 10-0 loss came on November 22 but according to sources, the loser was required to replace their current white head coach with a black one at some point before the next season. Yale is set to recognize their end of the wager by announcing later today that the new head coach of their football program will be the current Jacksonville Jaguars' assistant coach Tom Williams, a full fledged African-American.  Many critics have vocalized their disdain for such an inherently racist bet by two equally prestigious and pretentious institutions. After hearing of criticisms both Harvard and Yale's presidents issued a joint press release stating "Who cares what you people think, we're going to make more money than you people, we're going to have better jobs than you people, we're going to better remembered than you people. Get over it". Upon hearing of this, Sports Illustrated college football maven, Stewart Mandel said "Yale and Harvard still have football teams? That's weird."
