It’s not a men vs women issue..

Let’s say all student athletes should be given that 5 year opportunity..injured or not and move on thereafter. Currently the model is not set-up to get a masters. I think most people know that there are degrees that require something more than 1 year after undergrad. But some figure out how to do it in less than 6.

What I do know is that women basketball players go to school during the summer and It’s very common that they finish that communications degree prior to the 4th. Many are now figuring out how to do just that and become that free-agent we call “ grad transfer”.

There are accelerated programs that get you your masters in 4. There a programs that get you a masters in an additional1.

What we’re talking about here is a person going beyond the five. She APPLIED for and was recently GRANTED a 6th year. I don’t know her story...but I guess if she got injured this year and had to sit out, she’d be eligible to be a 7th year student athlete.What’s the number of years a person should move on ? Or should they keep going to get that PhD? Is it gaming the system? If the answer is YES ...then that’s the problem!

A little diversion..She seems to be someone McCallie recruited.
