Making the grade off the field

Re "Cardinal rules," editorial, Dec. 9

In pointing out the difficulties in playing Division I collegiate football while maintaining high admission and academic standards, The Times overlooks three schools that have managed to succeed -- West Point and the Naval and Air Force academies. The Navy team this year leads the nation in rushing yardage and will play in a bowl game. These schools accept only about 15% of those who apply. It's not easy, but it can be done.

Obviously the 42-0 score of the USC-Stanford game was very disappointing to this loyal Cardinal fan. However, I was able to take some solace in the fact that before the game, the score for 2006 Nobel laureates was Stanford 2, USC 0.
