In the early years of the conference, some of the schools put less emphasis on athletics than others, but they all shared the common belief that athletes should be students and not paid ringers.Chicago played more conference games in the early years because Mr. Stagg wanted it that way. He got his way for a long time, before Chicago decided to call it quits and drop athletics.Purdue almost dropped athletics too, early on. I know a prominent (distinguished) alumni who is also a major John Purdue Club member. He told me this.Wisconsin almost dropped athletics in the late 1960's. That was really, really close call.
