Anyone have any details on this? Just heard Luginbill on eSECpn mentioning something about a kid potentially being allowed to play 4 games and still get a shirt. First time I've heard anything about it. Would definitely endorse.

This is how the rule should be. Let kids play the meaningless games as frost and let them keep the year of eligibility

I would support this, especially when some true freshman play early, then take a medical redshirt for an injury. The injury may or may not legitimate, and this might end the practice of the illegitimate ones.

this has always been the rule. i got redshirted and played in a 2 games. After the 4th game though its a no go.

I hate that it comes up EVERY year...and someone will post some wording that sayas it doesnt work that way etc....but i copped a redshirt and played in a game...and made every away trip my freshman year..and i played in the 2000"s

What does 'playing' in 4 games actually mean? Running down on a kickoff or getting in the game for ONE series?

I don't doubt what you're saying but why is Luginbill touting it as a new then? Even as inept as some e$ECpn talking heads can be, I doubt he's confused about the existing rule.

It was a quarters accumulated rule over the first 4 games. Couldn't play in 9+ quarters maybe? If you played at all after week 5 you were done. Something like that. They really just need to give people 5 years to play. The avg college student takes 5 years to grad anyway.

Exactly. This ain't high school. There's no blatant competitive advantage to a 23 yr old lacing em up and it's not like anyone is asking for an increase in overall scholarship allotments to facilitate 5 yr careers.
