    Josh Johnson CAN'T redshirt or medical RS

    This according to Mac tonight on the radio show. He's ready to go, but is #3.

    I would also like to see some more carries out of Johnson, because I heard he was a great back. However, I don't think anyone can run behind our o-line.

    Re: Josh Johnson CAN'T redshirt or medical RS

    So, can someone please clarify for me...
    If you play AT ALL during a season you're supposed to be redshirting, is the redshirt gone? I've never heard what the specific ruling is on redshirt policy...

    Yes, except when there is an early-season injury. Then it's possible to petition for a 'medical' redshirt.


    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.

    Re: Josh Johnson CAN'T redshirt or medical RS

    anyone have any info on what his injury is? Seems like in the last few years we had a plethora of these nagging type injuries.

    Re: Josh Johnson CAN'T redshirt or medical RS

    To receive a medical hardship waiver - in any sport - the injury must limit the student-athlete’s participation to no more than 20 percent of the team’s contests (rounded to the next whole number), with all participation occurring in the first half of the season.
    Therefore, for a football player, the maximum number of games that he can play in and still receive a medical hardship waiver is three (20 percent of 11 equals 2.2, which is rounded up to 3), and none of his time on the field can occur after the fifth game (the sixth game of an eleven game season is considered in the second half of the season).

    In the case of a 12 game regular season none of the player's time on the field can occur after the sixth game. The seventh game of a 12 game season is considered in the second half of the season.

    So that means one of three things:

    Josh has played in more than 3 games. I recall 1 or 2, unless he was in on special teams sometime.

    Josh has played in the last two games.

    Josh has been fit to play.

    If it is either of the last two, then add this to the list of Mac screwups. Talk about wasting a year for a very touted kid. You don't play him enough to make it worth the experience but you torch his redshirt year. You didn't play him b/c you needed to...so you played him because???? I am getting further off the Mac bandwagon by the day.

    You said what I was thinking. I pulled my punch on this one, and I am glad you said this.

    Makes me worry about Arnaud.
