Well, we have common ground here! I agree completely that we have benefitted from special admits, but primarily in the time frame of your data. Not near as much today, but still happens. Since the late 60's we would have the equivalent of RICE's football legacy without exceptions. Exceptions however are self explanatory by definition. Our "exceptions" are the "norm" for a great many teams on our schedule. Prop 48 is minuscule in comparison to other changes since the 80s/90s.
