Stanford Football Players

Smartest NCAA Athletes ...

With ONE Exception

Great coaching got Stanford to the Rose Bowl, and helped all but one of its players avoid potential embarrassment -- but we gotta say ... at least that one renegade player was freakin' hysterical.

Here's how the play went down ... Stanford footballers -- in town to play Wisconsin -- went to the Improv Friday night in Hollywood... and were met by a TMZ camera guy.

Normally we keep the questions simple for athletes, but since these were Stanford-educated men ... we stepped it up -- asking about the fiscal cliff, the crisis in Syria, and Obamacare.

Well, the Cardinal coaches must've seen our 2008 pre-Rose Bowl encounter with USC -- because every player dummied up ... with the exception of the very last guy, who tackled the fiscal cliff question head-on.

We don't know his football stats, but he'd kill at the Improv..

Ain't no one gonna know **** about the fiscal cliff unless they 45 years old or their major studies it. Hey, ask some biologists about business stuff next time.

I KNEW the Stanford team was smarter! Jocks that go to Stanford have brains and get a great education. Unlike all the other imbeciles who go to college only to get into the NFL.

OMG a Stanford education and the guy hasn't a clue..."I'm from Florida"..lol A sad example of scholarships given to jocks and not to the brightest that MAY be pioneers of the future.

"We usually keep our questions simple.." is the FUNNIEST thing I've read on tMZ. Your questions aren't "simple", they are USUALLY, unbelievabily stupid,juvenile and your so-called reporters ALL SOUND GAY.
