To the Editor:
Brendan Kempff’s article, “Antiquated Ivy League Rules Rob Student Athletes of University Careers” in The Dec. 6 Sun was right on, and I applaud his sentiments, as do all of us interested in the well-being of our student-athletes. And I put in bold face and caps: both student and athlete. Why does the Ivy League want to penalize athletes who have done a fine job in the classroom? If athletes could use up their eligibility while attending graduate school, we would have more individuals receiving education at a higher level while increasing the number of Cornellians achieving Master’s degrees. This dilemma started right here at Cornell in 1978.
