    Yeah. I'm just wondering about the terminology - whether it can officially be referred to as a redshirt year if you're academically ineligible.

    This happens in the Ivy every now and then. Sometimes its maturity. Sometimes its illness (mono). Sometimes its bad news from back home (loved one is ill, mom and dad splitting up). Sometimes its personal stuff that he can't get out of his mind (girlfriend dumped him).

    There's a reason I usually say "assuming good health and good grades" when I make my preseason predictions.

    More accurately, I'm wondering whether an academically ineligible player can be involved with the team at all. A redshirt can practice, etc. can an academically ineligible player? I'm not sure it matters, as "not playing to focus on academics" doesn't really sound like he's going to be practicing (would kind of defeat the purpose I think). But if the coaches set academic goals and if he meets them, can he attend a position group meeting, etc?

    Itís not hard. I donít know how any athlete struggles with it. Universities set their athletic programs up to make it almost impossible to not pass. I canít imagine there is an AD out there that doesnít have tutors specifically for athletes. I canít imagine there isnít a program that doesnít have a required ďstudy groupĒ time during the week for athletes (freshman and then upper classmen that are at risk).

    How?

    Heís probably not even showing up for tests and getting zeros. Some of the professors arenít willing to fudge his grades, etc.

    That would be an example of the "maturity" thing I mentioned earlier.

    Well, I assume Gresch has a new spot to look at for continuing his career now.

    I haven't seen anything on it if he has. Definitely odd to me as well.
