Academics is absolutely independent


they do *seem* to be a factor *publicly* because that's just good PR...a president is obviously going to tout academics as part of the decision whenever she can.

L'ville and Nebraska aren't anomolies. They were invited for what they do for the *athletic* conference. That's what the conferences are for: ATHLETICS. The only way academics would ever be a *deciding* factor is if two schools were truly equivalent in all the things that actually matter athletically. And even then, those two schools would only be in the conversation because of their athletics, not because of their academics.
