That's a really creative use of JSTOR data!

I'd like to add that basketball has little adverse effect on my research, even last year when we were number 1. But politics.... Now they're a real distractor.


What a great idea for a study! Though I suspect, somewhat ironically, a school's *reputation* actually increases with tournament success, irrespective of research losses. Maybe not at Duke, UNC, or other big-basketball or big-academic schools; but I suspect that getting a job with a George Mason degree got at least incrementally easier after 2006's Final Four team taught America that George Mason is a university, not just a patriot.
