Cassar granted 2 more years!

Recommended Posts

One question is how does this affect Seth Nevills...is he content to redshirt, then ride the pine for another year?  Or does he look to transfer?

 

Or perhaps Cassar just uses 1 more year, wins another natty then goes to MMA, allowing Seth to step in.

He missed 2 full seasons due to injury

How does someone go to college for seven years, without working on a PHD?

Clearly the athlete part of student athlete is what matters.

Well, he hasn't exercised those 2 years yet.  But yes, he would have to be getting a graduate degree, like a MS or MA if he were to stay for 2 more years.

Only Cael makes stuff like this possible.

I've never heard of a fifth year student athlete in any D1 sport getting an extra two years of eligibility. Has it ever happened before?

If Cassar is sticking around because he wants to tinker with freestyle or make a run for the Olympic team while continuing to compete in college, that's great. If he also ends up getting a Masters degree on PSU's dime (at least partly) at the end of this, that's even better.

Slightly different story: As a Redshirt Junior, Grant Leeth was given 2 years to compete (IR) past his 5th year. This would make him a 7th year.

Willie Miklus was also a 7th year student this year.

With a greyshirt, not to speak of junior high and high school greyshirts (and PG years), will we soon see the 8-year path to graduation in your 30s?

Getting ridiculous. College is a safe haven from the real world. Coaches want their athletes to stay for selfish reasons. Some athletes can’t fathom dealing with a real job. If a wrestler hasn’t learned the valuable lessons that the sport teaches by age 22, it’s likely those lessons will never be learned. So a guy sticks around another year and wins a few more matches. Honestly, who really gives a darn. But, to each his own.

8 years is a lot of student loans. 6 including grad school and some grants + scholarships was much more than enough for me


A whole lot of Presidential candidates want to forgive all that college debt, so the NCAA is giving out eligibility like never before.

What dime? With all the high end people they are "supposedly" spreading their 9.9 over he would still have to be incurring a large chunk of debt each year.
