Regardless of $$ this is still outstanding leadership at this school.

I particularly liked this statement:
"We are committed to the principle that our athletes are first and foremost students. Each one was admitted to Morehouse with the expectation that he has the intellectual ability and commitment to finish his degree studies here."

D1 schools will soon have to prioritize the health and well being of all their students, and recognize that their student athletes (even those that make the school $$) are actually students first. It's about time. So much controversy over the past decades about paying players, coaches making millions, unfair support staff sizes at big time schools, that it's probably about time a reset. It's amazing that it's taken a worldwide pandemic though.
