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.
