Also of note, Shaw directly (well, almost) addressed the controversy about the recruitment of Jontrey Tillman, whose coach blasted Stanford when Tillman was rejected by admissions despite reportedly having solid grades.
Some rival coach claimed that Harbaugh would throw out offers knowing he could be selective on the back end by using the school's rigorous admissions policy to play bad cop. Shaw dismisses such criticism.
"There are some people that believe we do it on purpose, that we'll pull the rug out from under kids, and I take serious offense to that," he says. "It's wrong."
