Yes, UVa too has a double standard for athletes. So do Stanford & many of


the Ivies. But there are major differences of degree (pun semi-intended). The gap is much bigger at some good universities than others. UNC and Duke, for two, stand out in this respect. And of course there are many lesser universities, where even a much smaller gap, stretching downward from already-low academic standards for ordinary students, leaves even lower standards for athletes.
