The fact that Stanford, one of the most competitive universities in the country with an applicant acceptance rate of under 5%, admitted this guy as a student in the first place is a reflection on them.

Of course, it's also a reflection on the alumni and other fans who prioritize sports success over academic achievement to the extent of incentivizing the admission of very mediocre students who happen to be good athletes.
