    Agreed!! Gage, VA, Minshew are not going to school to continue their education. THey want to play football and this is their chance. IMO its time for these guys to get on with it. Either go to graduate school and earn your degree or go to work. You've been given an opportunity that very few have, to earn a free college education while you play football. I go for the five year plan instead of four but really don't like these special pleas and rulings.

    agreed, other than redshirt-ing as true FR.

    In theory, under these new rules .. a guy like Gage Gabrud could have done following:

    - Greyshirted the fall of his FR, and joined program in spring.

    - Redshirted the next fall, though played in as many as 4 games

    - Then play for 3 full years

    - Then get injured in his 5th year after playing 4 games and come back for full 6th season.

    So in theory, he could participate for 6.5 years, and play 4 full seasons plus 4 more games in 2 other seasons. Seems more than a bit out of hand ... where does this end ??

    You would think allowing a redshirt season would be enough of a compromise ... I mean I get the idea of jumping right into college football the summer you graduate and then right into game season in the fall is a lot .. especially in a sport like football which demands a lot of players both physically and in terms of time commitment ... so I support the notion of redshirting in football

    But apparently, this isn't alone enough of a compromise ... so I'm not a fan of the Gage Gabrud medical RS ruling, especially not in addition to new rule allowing 4 games as RS FR.

    Draw a frickin line ... 4 years is 4 years .. Redshirt is more than enough compromise.

    It's his decision how he wants to spend his late teens and early twenties. Why is it any of your business?

    Playing football can be part of an education. Especially if your career path is going down the path of football or some other sport. Whether it is playing professionally or coaching.
    Playing sports in college can prepare you for any career. Many student squeeze a four year education into a five year plan, so I have no problem with allowing a 5th year.

    Average student takes 4.5 to 5 years to graduate at this point

    No issues with getting a 5th year as a redshirt year.

    Year 6 becomes a bit grey with the medical waivers. But if a student is pursuing a MA/MS then it's well used as they are setting themselves up for life after school and football
