Fugu and Kevfu:
Here are a couple of interesting studies relating to your debate.
I am not sure how much weight to put on the first one given that this is an undergraduate paper, though clearly if you are a "select student at Wharton" you
have a reasonable chance of being quite bright.
I included it here because one interesting finding is that for Division III schools athletic success in the big money sports appears to have a negative impact on both numbers and quality of appplicants. In particular, success in basketball seems to have been significant.
For Football in Division I success seems to be nuetral with respect to matriculation.
Here is a more standard publication on the subject.
