Stupid Question: if Brown gets a waver, he plays next year and occupies one scholarship spot on the team. If he has to sit out for one year, what happens logistically? How are his expenses covered? If he takes classes the year he sits, who pays for his tuition and stipend?
Redshirting players are on scholarship that season. The only difference is that he can’t play.
So, it is a two-year scholarship even though they can play only one year and it counts towards the allowable scholarships a team can have per year. Interesting.
Yes still on scholarship (and takes up a scholarship spot) for the year he sits
Never thought of it this way, but if a waver is granted everybody wins. School minimizes expenses, player gets immediate usage. If a player has to sit out a year, school has more expenses (but it is peanuts to them), but more important, a player loses the most. Only NCAA could think of such injustice to the student athletes.
