Not sure if these facts are precise, but it appears you're comparing 15 kids taking midterms (basketball) to 60+ kids taking final exams (football).

And the problem with that is exactly what? Magnitude?

Having kids miss exams for games is not unheard of at all levels of college sports. If it is an acceptable practice, then the number of players on the team shouldn't matter at all.

I would think that missing exams and papers because you don't like the results of the Presidential election is setting a much worse precedent for any institution that values educational standards.

I don't recall the League saying the problem with football was the number of people affected, just that there was a problem interfering with the academic schedule, but perhaps someone can point to a statement otherwise.

Even so, what's the dividing line between "too many" and "not enough to care about"?

The point of intersection between desire and reality?
