Harvard athletics does "recommend" players for academic scholarships, but it's still extremely impressive.

Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
WE ARE! And we will always be...
Another incentive the Ivy League provides is leniency regarding admittance to colleges....I know at Penn all athletes can enroll in any college regardless of their academic background....most end up in Wharton which peeves the rest of the student body.....It is ridiculous they can't provide athletic aid with those endowments IMO
they do, but they just don't call it athletic aid -- instead it will come under other categories such as need based or merit based. And they also relax the admissions standards for athletes, and though they won't recruit marginal kids like SEC schools they will still take athletes wouldn't get in otherwise.
Well if they did that they wouldn't be the Ivy League.
IMO if they're good enough to play football at Harvard, they've earned admittance into the Wharton School. If they can do well enough to earn a degree on top of playing sports, good for them. Way more impressive than the debate team or liberatarian club IMO.
You guys are making my point for me. Unless you're on the fast track to the NFL, take the Wharton degree (or comparable degree from whatever Ivy program you choose) and reap 40 years of benefits instead of the 4 years at another with the minuscule chance of playing pro football afterwards. At least that's what I'd tell my kid.

I wasn't arguing your point, but I agree.
For some, big time football and attention beats a degree. Priorities I guess.
I knew this kid's team was good last year, but didn't know just HOW good. Finished the 4th ranked team in the ENTIRE COUNTRY!
