    Maybe the respective lawyers can meet for coffee before appellate court?

    The school may stink but the kids in Bristol are sharp as a pistol.

    Interesting situation. It seems like Bristol was sanctioned because it was running at a huge loss; it would probably fold anyway.
    One thing interests me: how did this school ran an athletic program without having undergraduate academic programs? What was that about?

    I haven't looked at the school site so I don't know what's going on there but

    if you red-shirt as a Freshman you still have four years of athletic eligibility and, if you progress through your degree on schedule then your last year of athletic eligibility would be year five of your college career or, your first year of grad school. If you didn't play college sports as an undergrad you can do it as a grad student.

    All true, but running the whole program on it? Bizarre. But then again, it was likely a truly fringe school in other aspects as well.
