    Last year Stanford stopped giving special consideration to students athletes applying to its grad programs.

    No more grad transfers. Also a bunch of 5 years grad athletes now have to transfer out because they dont have the resume or grades to get into their own Stanford grad programs.

    Way to build that alumni loyalty, Stabford.

    The average GPA at Stanford's Graduate School of Business is 3.7, while the average at Harvard is 3.66.Mar 27, 2014

    The human brain can only serve #1 master at a time! to ask a kid/son to approach schooling like a Non athlete(no cupcake classes) and focus on all football necessities at the same time, would be a crime against humanity.
    Perhaps Stanford should exit top level football and have only Intramural Sports, or maybe join the Ivy League. Rock and a Hard place for Stanford, compromise the integrity of its GPA for Grad school(special considerations), or,,,

    Yeah, except for one thing. Unlike the Ivy League, Stanford doesn't need to be successful in football to cover their costs because everyone from the head coach down to the guy who takes out the trash in the athletic department are paid through their athletic endowment which is substantial. Stanford can do everything the Ivy League schools can do from an academic perspective while hanging around a conference with 10 public universities, none of whom have Stanford's admission requirements. If anyone has the best of both worlds, Stanford does.

    Bottom line should be that if enough schools/teams want to play and are willing to work along guidelines for testing/quarantine/etc then let those teams play.
