I conflated your two posts because I thought you were both referring to stretching Ivy admission standards for athletes--which if really a problem, pales in comparison to far more significant Ivy problems. With very few exceptions, Ivy athletes are extraordinary young people.

To the extent I misunderstood your two posts, my apologies.

The Penn State and Baylor situations are tragic and emblematic of problems which bedevil certain aspects of college athletics. What gets lost amidst the wreckage is the fact that most college athletes benefit from their experiences/studies, are decent people and go on to lead good lives.
