More Bad News Out of Yale: The Story Behind a Collapsed Candidacy for a Rhodes Scholarship
Read this and then contemplate it.
Who are the real heroes?
What can you believe any more?
A QB allegedly turned town a Rhodes interview to play in the "Game" against Harvard. Gets national coverage. A possible testimony to what's right and pure about college athletics.
Except. . . that he was yanked as a Rhodes candidate ostensibly before he would have had the chance to interview. For what's it's worth, he had a disciplinary record -- both at Yale and at the university from which he transferred -- and because of football either went to three high schools in four years or four in three years.
Yale QB. Great grade-point average. Choosing teammates over fame.
Sounded great, didn't it?
But it was too good to be true, it seems.
What are we supposed to believe anymore?
