    I was just wondering what was the news or if there will be any news on his classification. It says he's a RSr on the athletic website, but I didnt know if ISU tried to get a medical redshirt for last year's knee injury during the UNI game. Or if that would even be possible for him to get another redshirt.

    And I also didnt know if the NCAA gives out medical redshirts if the player actually got to play a little in the first game.

    Any thoughts about this would be great, I hadn't seen this brought up at all so thought I'd ask. Thanks

    It is my understanding that you can't apply for a medical redshirt until after your final year of regular eligibility. I don't know if that's true or not though.

    True, you can't apply for it until your eligibility has run out. It will be up to him whether he gives it another year or not which I would assume he would.

    Not true. There is nothing in the NCAA Division I manual that states you can't apply for a medical redshirt immediately upon injury. You could even submit one after getting injured, get cleared medically, and then compete later on in the year that you applied for the medical hardship (at which point your application would get denied).

    Robert Griffin got his medical redshirt for the 2010 year when he tore his ACL. That is why he was classified as a fourth year junior for the 2011 season and then could come back next year if he wanted even though he redshirted in 2007.

    Didn't he RS his first season? If so, he'd be looking for a 6th year? From what I've seen, you pretty much have to miss two full years of competition to get a 6th. So if somehow, he got hurt this year and missed a majority of the games, he might have a shot. Otherwise, chances are slim.

    What he said. He's already used his redshirt, so a medical redshirt is a non issue. You're (OP) referring to a sixth year of eligibility, which is petitioned for after the player completes his career.

    I am pretty sure that to qualify for a medical redshirt a player needs to have either not used their normal redshirt or have been hampered by injuries for the better part of two or more seasons. Not sure if the rules are different for football though.

    Didn't he play for about one half before his season ended? I don't know the rules, but I feel like that should be close to enough to get a medshirt.

    Again, he's already used his redshirt.

    To obtain the "Medical Redshirt" you can not have played in more than 1/4 of the season before going out with a season-ending injury. Since he went out in the UNI game, he qualifies for the Medical Redshirt. He would have qualified even if he went out in the UConn game.

    He can't get a Medical Redshirt, because he had already used a regular redshirt.

    He can apply for a 6th year of eligibility at the end of the year if he wants to. That is all.

    Is it official that Roosevelt Maggitt is done as a Cyclone, or is there a petition for a 6th season in the works?

    Even if he did return I think I'd like to see Irving and Scott start over him anyways.

    Absolutely not.
     
  18. Is this a new rule? Because there are plenty of instances where a player redshirted and received a medical redshirt as well.

    No its not a rule. That guy is an idiot. It is called a medical redshirt or a medical hardship waiver. See Jason White and Case Keenum.

    What's the difference between what is commonly called a "medical redshirt" and a 6th year of eligibility? Other than you can get a 6th year for (rare) non-medical reasons? I'm not aware of a difference.
