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.
"This is really important to be here," Lewan said. "I'm here to give back and help out my teammate."
