Hines waits long enough to get an article on his football and political goals and then pulls the plug on football once he receives the publicity. It's times like these that I wish the Ivies could kick recruited athletes out if they willingly choose to quit the sport that they were recruited to play. We are handing an Ivy diploma to an undeserving NC State kid.

Even in this Age of Entitlement, I presume he still has to graduate to get the diploma.

And if football is the only reason he is a deserving candidate, then all these platitudes about ivy athletes being student athletes with varied interests are just as empty as when uttered by the NC State officials. This isn't the Harvard basketball team, after all.

He at least tried to give it a go before breaking his collarbone last year.

"Playing the Game" says that Ivy coaches have stories of helping recruits get through admissions, and then having them never show up for practice once they arrive on campus.

Yale seems to get more than its share of quitters. Are they tempted away from their sport by the glittering nightlife of the Elm City?

whether he told Tony Romo in person or notified him via text which most kids do there days:

"Coach Romo I appreciate you getting me into Yale via the back door to further my political career but I have decided that I no longer have any interest in playing football sorreeee"

I can't find Camden McRae's name on a Harvard basketball roster.

That's because he graduated. Had a 4.0, too. How's YOUR quitter doing?

In defense of young Mr McRae, he was not a quitter. He was dismissed from the Harvard roster immediately after his AI score was added to the team average. He had fulfilled his purpose as a recruit.

Observer, how do you know that Camden graduated with a 4.0? Good for him. I'm glad it all worked out for him in the end.

Since he often is a punching bag on this website, it is fair to note that Camden McRae has done quite well for himself. For example, he must have achieved close to a 4.0 since he is in his second year at Stanford Law School. Stanford Law has about 10% acceptance rate for applications and a medium GPA of 3.9. Camden spent this summer working on NFL contracts with IMG, the top sports agency. Maybe he can negotiate the big contract for the next Ivy League athlete who excels in the NFL, NBA, MLB or NHL.

I hope he continues to do well in life and don't fault him for the choices he has made.

I just find it amusing that our resident Harvard Hypocrite, who never played, or had the option to play, a minute of collegiate sports himself, and whose own team is rife with examples of "recruits who aren't really allowed to play, tries to mock someone who actually does have multiple options and chooses to pursue one of them.

Hey Observer and Unknown -ever think Hines started practicing and realized his injured shoulder just wasn't right? Dude had some pretty serious injuries and you sometimes fool yourself that it will be fine. Maybe it wasn't. Perhaps a possibility? On the other hand the timing is certainly a little weird. Hard to say. He sounds like a pretty smooth character, sort of like other members of our fine political establishment. Who knows.

The title of the Courant article 10 days ago was "Yale Wide Receiver Hines Finally Healthy."
