Will this usher in the era of the seven year plan?

The seven year plan will work great until we figure out how to implement the 8 year plan.  At that point people will wonder how teams even won before the 8 year plan.

I forget who calculated it, but somebody on here once figured it out, without an injury year. Or a Mormon mission.

It was something like, greyshirt, regular redshirt, 1 year of competing in college, Olympic redshirt, then 3 more years of college.  It can be done.

I really hate the grayshirt term. It doesn't mean anything. If an athlete chooses not to enroll he takes the risk that whatever deal was on the table might not be there and vice versa if an athlete changes their mind they can just go somewhere else. The term really doesn't make sense for wrestling as a two semester sport. The practice started to let football oversign and bring a kid into school in the second semester and release the 5th year guys.

as far as I understand Manville's goals, it makes perfect sense for him to take the Olympic year and make his run at the team spot. As for any gaming of the system to prolong eligibility and possibly maybe have a spot in the PSU line-up, meh.
