Broke his foot on Oct 9th. Does anyone know if he can apply for another year of eligility? If not, could he be ready for the bowl games?
Martavious Odoms . . .Any word on how he is doing?
My answer to both of your questions is, I doubt it. He played a majority of the games, so I believe he will not be able to get a medical redshirt, although I could be completely wrong. I also doubt he will be back before the bowl game, while possible I think RR will have him take it easy coming back from a broken foot and make sure he is ready to go for spring practice.
He is also still full from Thanksgiving
That's good to hear. I've missed watching him this year.
He only played in 2 more games than Moeller, and it's Moeller's 2nd medical redshirt. Then again there is also the secret rule book that Ohio State plays by that has to be taken into account.
Second question....unlikely, but possible if he can get medical clearance
Can he apply for a medical redshirt based on the injury? If UM was UM of old he would have been a RS his first year anyhow - what is the ruled there - enlighten me as to how that works.
If a player plays in 30% or less of his/her team's games, then suffers a season ending injury, a medical hardship may be granted.
Right Bo or Lloyd never played a true freshman, especially at receiver before.
hm, ever heard of chad henne, mike hart, or jake long?? iirc navarre may have started as a frosh as well
Hmm, ever heard of sarcasm?
No. No, I haven't. Is it new?
I'm pretty sure it's a band.
Jake Long was a red shirt frosh
Mario Manningham was a frosh playing receiver under Lloyd as well as Greg Mathews, Junior Hemingway, and Tony Clemons. I can not remember any other receivers playing as true freshman but that is what some of the older guys here are for :)
Antonio Bass, Braylon Edwards, Stevie Breaston, David Terrell, Mercury Hayes, Amani Toomer, Derrick Alexander, and Jason Avant are a few that come to mind that probably played as true freshmen.
Yeah, try Darryl Stonum, Jeremy Jackson and Je'Ron Stokes too.
Anthony Carter under Bo played under Bo as a Freshman. He got homesick and almost left.
I think you missed the sarcasm.
y'all gotta work on your usernames if you're going to be doing this.
edit: as an item of note, 0111 translated to decimal from binary is 7.
I think i got a wish bone at home, i'll challenge someone to it and wish for odoms to heal and hope i win
This is how I solve most of my problems.
can you change your avatar please? i keep seeing it and thinking that something worthwhile will be written by the other person who has it. obviously this is pretty dickish by me, i am not trying to keep you from ever posting, but the avatar is a way for users to individually identify themselves and this causes confusion.
also, the "UM of old" is really old, freshman have been making an impact at UM since i have been cognizant, which is about 1986ish. the first freshman i can remember getting serious time as a freshman was Ricky Powers, which turns out to be 1990, 20 years ago, longer ago than the majority of current UM players have been alive.
Thinking that Martavious Odoms is a first-year player might merit that, actually. Just sayin'.
Martavious Odoms is a junior, so what the hell are you talking about?
I thought he was supposed to be back for the bowl game. The original report at the time of the injury was that he'd be out about two months,
I think he could be ready if it was a fairly simple fracture. If it was something like a metatarsal fracture those are pretty simply and not normally associated with ligamentous/tendinous injury. The surgery would help to stabilize it, getting him back on his feet sooner. I guess the only question would be if he is done with his therapy, and the extent of atrophy from being off his leg.
Players like Odoms who came here because of RR and his scheme may chose to transfer with a coaching change. Especially those who still have a RS year available to them.
I would love to know how this is relevant to this thread about how Odoms is recovering from an injury.
Edit: Do you guys think the water boys will follow RichRod!?!?!?!?!!?!?
can Troy Woolfolk play in a bowl game, (if he is fit), or does he have to wait till next season?
Even if he was healthy he will not play due to the medical redshirt rules. His eligibility would be done if he plays in the bowl game. He is way too valuable to next year's team!
And he appeared to be moving fine and I didn't notice him wearing a cast or boot or anything. I wasn't actually paying all that much attention, so maybe I'm wrong, but nothign stood out enough for me to go "Oh, he's still pretty banged up".
