Re: PAC 12 Football
Again, it's mostly semantics. At ND a player is expected to graduate in four years and it is considered an exception when he is allowed to come back for year number five even if he still has eligibility. I don't know what Stanford's specific policy is, although they do have fifth-year seniors, so we can presume Luck could have been one had he so chosen. What we do know is that Stanford appears to use the same policy as Notre Dame on how they refer to their athletes' class. And that's what this whole debate is about, whether Luck is a senior or a junior, and the answer depends on who you're asking.
