PSU TE Garry Gilliam was just granted a 6th year after appearing in more games and later in season than Gardner did in 2010 (same year in question). This on the heels of MSU DT Tyler Hoover getting a 2nd medical redshirt for a 6th year, and OSU RB Jordan Hall getting a medical redshirt for a 5th year next year. Starting to get a little nervous that we have heard no news on Gardner's petition though.
"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
