After #5 Stanford lost to Utah 27-21 Saturday night, leave it to ESPN's very own Lou Holtz to make excuses
for the Cardnidals. Holtz blamed the loss to a crazy week of midterms...
“There’s no doubt that Stanford did not play well. But I know coming from an academic institution, this is a time for midterm exams,” Holtz explained. “Players are not focused, they don’t get to practice on time, they’re worn out, they’re tired, they don’t get much sleep, and you do not play very well. And that is exactly what it looked like to me with Stanford. I don’t know that for a fact, but that looked like a football team that was in midterms.”
Last time I checked all schools took midterms, no?
