DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - Grade inflation is coming to the University of New Hampshire, and not in the usual way.

“Deflategate” will be the subject of a course in the fall term. UNH sports law professor Michael McCann has designed the four-credit undergraduate class to look at the legal underpinnings of the NFL scandal.

According to the course description, it will be about “the interplay between those footballs … and the legal, regulatory and journalistic systems governing sports.” It will be open to 75 students.

The New England Patriots were caught using underinflated footballs in January’s AFC title game. A report this this week found sufficient evidence that the team violated NFL rules. Quarterback Tom Brady was found to be “at least generally aware” of the improprieties.
