I know news organizations like to lionize college athletes who are also successful in the classroom - see Myron Rolle - but this is still pretty cool. You kind of hope that schools like Northwestern, UM, and ND also appeal to kids like this - smart guys who are good athletes but also realize that even if they play pro ball, they still have 40+ years of their lives to live once they hang up their cleats, and studio analysts positions aren't a given.

given the three season average career of NFL running back, working with bio-tech startups has a much better risk / reward ratio; and doesn't involve getting hit by Ray Lewis.

but the article states that Stanford is the fourth best school in the country. Shouldn't it be the fourth best PUBLIC school? just wondering.
