Are players from postponed teams maintaining their eligibility?

Post by bigandblue » August 14th, 2020, 7:26 am

Sorry if this has already been discussed. The NCAA should really come forward and make this season a bonus redshirt season for everyone. It would be the best thing to do from a public relations standpoint.

NCAA has made a statement. They are giving eligibility to anyone who plays less than half the season or chooses to opt out.

The financial burden for the schools will be terrible. It will also be bad for the players if a bunch of them Tuesday then you bring on a new class there's only so much playing time available so that just means a lot more people riding the bench. I wouldn't be surprised if the number that want to stay around is possibly may be small but who knows.

To reduce confusion, I think they should just state that the players from schools who chose NOT to play will have the same eligibility in 2021 that they had in 2020. True freshmen in 2020 are true freshmen in 2021 etc. If your school PLAYS and you participate, you use a year of eligibility.

I wonder if they'll make any adjustments to the number of scholarships available, given the potential of what this might do to high school class recruits.

I wonder if some kind of bailout money would be available for schools that were not able to raise the funds to cover additional scholarships for a year? Honestly, if a kid has already graduated but still has one year of eligibility left, is it even worth attending school this semester? Is it more beneficial to take the semester off and come back in January for spring ball and prepare for the 2021 season? Schools could save scholarship money asking kids to take that route. Why keep working toward a degree when your eligibility has been frozen?

I've been wondering that as well...I don't know that university funding has hit the federal radar yet. Not that that means they would get anything done on the issue!

Wisconsin told seniors in spring sports that they would not be bringing them back even if they were eligible to return due to financial reasons. I imagine very few programs will be able to bring back the 2020 Spring sport athletes and the 2020 Fall athletes, plus the incoming athletes and if conferences are already saying no sports until 2021, it is not out of the question that winter sports may be impacted.

On the radio yesterday GA said that a couple of seniors on the team have already told him they are moving on and will not play even if a Spring season happens and obviously would not return next year. Not sure who he was referring to. Even with some attrition like that, you may have to raise the 85 limit to 100.

I hate seeing kids cheated and out of the hard work they've put in and the chance to finish their collegiate or high school careers.

I can not see where the money would come from to increase the limit from 85 to 100. The University can not and should spend even more university funds to support football. There are real tough times ahead.

I f I scolded you I apologize. I'm kind of a matter of fact type of person need to work on that. Anyway I think the school will not be putting the money into the budget they have in the recent past. I believe they are facing some very tough times in the entire University.
I want this program to succeed so I will donate this seasons football ticket purchase along with my donation, and will send A extra donation in shortly. I was taught that "Talk is cheap but it takes money if you want good whiskey " I want good whiskey for my adopted school.

I wonder if they'll make any adjustments to the number of scholarships available, given the potential of what this might do to high school class recruits.
I wonder if some kind of bailout money would be available for schools that were not able to raise the funds to cover additional scholarships for a year? Honestly, if a kid has already graduated but still has one year of eligibility left, is it even worth attending school this semester? Is it more beneficial to take the semester off and come back in January for spring ball and prepare for the 2021 season? Schools could save scholarship money asking kids to take that route. Why keep working toward a degree when your eligibility has been frozen?
Wisconsin told seniors in spring sports that they would not be bringing them back even if they were eligible to return due to financial reasons. I imagine very few programs will be able to bring back the 2020 Spring sport athletes and the 2020 Fall athletes, plus the incoming athletes and if conferences are already saying no sports until 2021, it is not out of the question that winter sports may be impacted.

On the radio yesterday GA said that a couple of seniors on the team have already told him they are moving on and will not play even if a Spring season happens and obviously would not return next year. Not sure who he was referring to. Even with some attrition like that, you may have to raise the 85 limit to 100.
I can not see where the money would come from to increase the limit from 85 to 100. The University can not and should spend even more university funds to support football. There are real tough times ahead.

Poor high school class of 2021...
Poor everyone in the world that has been impacted and will be for years to come. High school kids not playing sports ball games is of minimal importance in the grand scheme of things.

My point was more along the lines that there will be far fewer scholarships available to them if tons of athletes are getting an extra year of eligibility.
