Chris Stewart of Notre Dame -- Starting Guard, Law Student

Sometimes I've written that you just cannot make this stuff up.

Usually, it means that the story is so bizarre, weird or bad that if you wrote it in a novel people wouldn't think that it could really happen in real life.

Well, I'm happy to report that this story is pretty amazing, it's true, and it's probably rare. Chris Stewart, a starting guard on Notre Dame's football team, is a law student (he graduated from the undergraduate program by the time he became a starter as a junior).

Contrast Mr. Stewart with former Heisman winner Matt Leinart, who remained at USC for an extra year to enjoy college life and play football, all the while taking one course in the fall of his final year -- ballroom dancing. In this particular Notre Dame-USC rivalry, Notre Dame wins.

On summary judgment.
