 Is it ethical for a college to accept a football player with much poorer grades than his classmate?  The latest case on the Center's Big Q blog deals with a form of affirmative action that has nothing to do with race.  

The case was written by SCU student Samantha Mazza as part of a class on "Sports and Communication."  The Big Q is an online dialog for undergraduates from colleges and universities across the country exploring the everyday ethical issues confronting college students.
