I was at a restaurant last night and saw a little kid, maybe eight years old, waiting with his family to be seated. He was wearing a "UCR" sweatshirt.
Hostess to the kid: "What's that? UC Riverside?"
Little kid (smiling): "Yeah. My brother goes to college there."
Little brothers and sisters will proudly wear the college sweatshirt you buy for them whether or not you're attending an Ivy League school. I think they've got the right attitude.
