    Stanford is not in the Ivy League.

    And I'll eat my hat if Vitor actually got admitted to Stanford.

    Stanford is in the Pac-10 not the Ivy League. Contrary to the way "Ivy League" is used it is actually a sporting conference not an expression of an elite academic university.

    that being said I grew up minutes from stanford and it is one of the best institutions in the world. It is up there with harvard, oxford and yale.

    Not sure how you can insult the intelligence of someone like Sherman. Dude grew up with Compton, got a 4.2 in High School, made it through Stanford (which is far from an easy school) while playing ball, and is one of the most successful present day NFL'ers.

    Seriously. What the fuck is wrong with you.

    Ivy League = best universities in the world = Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, etc. It originated as an intercollegiate sports league where just 8 universities--including the 4 I mentioned--played each other. By and large when most people talk about the Ivy League, they're talking about the academic prowess and not the sports teams, though.

    It's a group of Universities that are part of some sports club or something

    Apparently Stanford isn't part of it.

    Ivy League Universities are noted for their prestige but there are many non-Ivy League schools just as good as the Ivies.
