Default Red shirt rule changed...can play up to 4 games

NCAA changes redshirt rule to allow players to play up to 4 games without burning a year of eligibility. This is gonna be a big game changer for college football

Great rule change!

Gives a coach a chance to see what a kid can really do before deciding whether or not to redshirt. Will give the coaches a ton more flexibility. The new guys can actually get some decent live-game experience without losing a year.

Great for recruiting! We’ll play you and see what you have but if we don’t feel you’re up to par, you will be redshirted.

Does it matter which 4 games? Could they play the last 4 games and still get a red shirt?

Also good for players that play a few games and get a season ending injury.

Default Re: Red shirt rule changed...can play up to 4 games

educate me on something. i know that players have already been doing this for years. i am 100% sure we have had freshman play a few games and magically disappear for the season and redshirt.

they just say its a medical hardship to get around it and ive always known it was bs but the coaches worked the system.

That was for a "medical" redshirt. I think with the new rule there doesn't have to be a medical reason.

So there are ways schools get around this so say someone played in the first 2-3 but then coaches decided they want to get them another year

Often they would get an “injury” that would limit them the rest of the year and they would file for a medical hardship to try and get that year back

Medical hardships aren’t guaranteed schools must provide a large about of supporting documentation etc

Default Re: Red shirt rule changed...can play up to 4 games

Unless the 4 games can be at anytime of the season - and not just the first 4 games - then this isn't really a big change to pre-existing rules. The big difference here is, the coaching staffs don't have to make up fake injuries to give the players medical redshirts after finding out young players aren't ready for college FB yet.

I guess if a staff chooses to shut down a kid and redshirt him after 4 games, the stats he produced during those 4 gms will still get wiped from his career record......

no i think theyll keep the stats like in the same way if you played in 4 games got a medical redshirt you kept your stats. interesting decision for coaches now on what to do. now if youve got a player who wasnt ready at the beginning of the season you can give him game action in november without burning his shirt or even have him sit the whole season but play in the bowl game.

Default Re: Red shirt rule changed...can play up to 4 games

This is great from a player development point of view. I would imagine coaches would generally play them in some of the smaller games to get their feet wet, and because they are not consecutive, it would be a way to gauge their progress over the season.

Does this apply to transfers or just new freshmen?

Yeah but the way I understand it, you have to apply for and be granted a medical hardship. Itís not always guaranteed. This gets rid of that red tape.

But it also does not specify which 4 games. Before, it was considered the first 4 of the season, or 1/3.

Good for OOC games against smaller schools to be able to do this as well.
