    Is he going to get a medical redshirt? If so, does he come back next year or go the draft? Is he just going to come back later in the year? I haven't been keeping up on the latest. Anything new on this front?

    I doubt he gets a RS unless he misses like 9 games. Even then he probably wouldnt get one. And I doubt hes outs that long anyways.

    He hasnt redshirted, so it isnt a matter of NCAA approval. If he wanted to, he could be redshirted. I say he plays against Florida, as well, though.

    So you can only get a medical redshirt if you are hurt in practice?

    Oh, you know, I confused some terms. It would actually be a "medical hardship waiver", which does have to be approved, and the athlete must participate in no more than 20 percent of contests. I always get this stuff confused, since there is technically no such thing as a medical redshirt, only redshirt and medical hardship.

    I cant think of anyone ever being denied, though.

    Read what I replied to please.

    The guy said Doucet didn't need a medical redshirt because he had never redshirted. I said he can't take a regular redshirt because he had played in games this season already. You can't take a redshirt if you have played one play in a game................unless you get a medical redshirt. A medical redshirt applies if you are hurt after playing a certain percentage of games. But even then the NCAA doesn't have to give you a medical redshirt.

    But that's not what I replied to so please read first before making some wise remark.

    Actually, the NCAA calls it a "hardship waiver", and you can get one if you have played during the season if certain criteria is met:

    1. The student-athlete suffers season-ending injury;
    2. The student-athlete suffers the injury/illness during the first half of the season and as a result, cannot compete for the remainder of the season; and
    3. The student-athlete has not competed in more than 2 contests or twenty percent (whichever is greater) of contests during the season.

    Please indicate where I was being wise. I was actually asking a question. Maybe you should let your guard down a little, scrappy.
