It's a tough spot to be in for any conference trying impose any semblance of quantitative academic restrictions. If you have any sort of numerical scale, you are going to preclude some excellent kids of strong character who fall beneath your threshold.

On the other hand, if you don't have a numerical scale, then you're leaving each of your member schools to compete on the honor system, making their own decisions based upon whatever they want. And that's basically what HYP did not want to allow Penn to do in the 1970's.

So we got the AI. And with the AI, there will be unfortunate casualties, terrific young men and women who probably could have been admitted if they were not athletic recruits (like a development admit, even if he does grow up to be Jared Kushner) but who are blocked because they are terrific athletes.
