Can anyon explain the process behind the hardship waiver process? What is the likelihood that he gets or doesn't get it and how long does the process usually take?
this may be of some local interest
No... It's a secret.
He's a Wolverine. Relax.
I just ran over 3 maryland defenders with Ty Isaac for a TD on NCAA 15.
I like this guy.
That wasn't Ty Isaac, that was just a randomly generated player with his number and likeness - NCAA
You're right! What the hell was I thinking?
RB #32 is really good on this game.
Crazy how he just happens to be the same exact size and from Illinois.
Does anyone know when we will hear about Devin Gardner's medical redshirt??!
Downvoted? That was the funny post of the day!
Maybe he'll get the rare 2nd year medical redshirt for the beating he took last year
It would certainly be very NCAA to notice that one of its student-athletes is getting the snot beaten out of him, and respond by allowing him to get the snot beaten out of him for an extra year.
How long it takes Ty to get ready in the morning? Is he a morning person or does he like to hit snooze. Hot or cold shower type of guy? Does he eat a big breakfast or does he like to keep it light? Does he shave every morning or like to keep some stubble for the ladies?
Thirty minutes, morning person, hot shower, keeps it light, shaves.
Disclaimer: I know nothing about his routine, but I am trying desperately to avoid studying for the bar.
Good luck, man. Nothing better than the ol' bar exam.
I'm probably lucky that in my days of studying for bar exams in three different states (due to a couple of relocations in the first two years after passing the bar exam in the state where I'd attended law school*), there was no Internet or cable TV and the only "distractions" were three TV networks, a couple of local TV stations and PBS. And around midnight or 1:00 AM, the only thing on TV was this:
* Fortunately, I passed them all on the first try. Bar exams were not fun, but as tough as they were, they never prepared me for month-long trials or six straight days of settlement negotiations with no sleep. Hope you'll be lucky enough to pass on your first try, and best wishes for success in your career.
I have nothing to add to this, so here's Tom Hank's face on a puppy whilst running.
I guess Tom got lonely on that island.
I am not sure about the timeline precisely, but the most relevant section of the handbook - I think - is 220.127.116.11.1.1 (I have it right here), which is titled "Circumstances Beyond Control" in the section on Waiver Criteria.
Part (b) discusses one of the reasons considered, which is life-threatening or incapacitating illness to a member of the student-athlete's immediate family, and according to this, it needs to be accompanied by some documentation as well. It isn't really more specific than that beyond that fact that such requests actually go to the committee on Student-Athlete Reinstatement.
The kid has an Eddie George like physique and very good speed. If our O line comes together and plays to their potential there isn't a game on the schedule we cannot win. This has a 1997/2006 feel to it in all honesty. Coming off of terrible seasons. Lots of unproven talent....
The feel of '97? And a year we went undefeated until OSU? Really? God bless you for your optimism, but have you been out of the country the past 6 years?
would be beneficial for him. It will give our OL an additional year to learn how to block. They are sure to improve their 117th ranking from last year.
Oh, cool. Glad that's settled then! [Mods please move to front page]
If you look at our roster top to bottom...we are a top 10 ball club. All it takes is Nussmeier being a home run hire and G. Mattison doing what we know he can. I like 10 wins is the floor for this team this season.
Uhh so let me see...we're going to have a great year because we were terrible last year, we hired a new OC who just has to be a "home run," and we just picked up a transfer who will likely have to sit out this season? Did I get all that?
You do know the meaning of "floor" right?
Didn't the NCAA just vote to do away with the hardship waiver completely and instead grant an extra year of eligibility (if a RS had already been burned)?
EDIT: Nevermind. Looks like they did approve the change but it won't go into effect until the 2015-16 academic year. Will be interesting to see if the evaluation of cases changes though. Would think the NCAA may be more restrictive knowing the rule is about to change.
As with medical redshirts, the NCAA is very liberal in granting hardship waivers and he almost certainly will be eligibel this year.
Also, I have no idea what I am talking about.
Sorry for sarcasm, I am curious on the timeline as well.
Isn't there a chance he doesn't get the hardship waiver, and decides to go elsewhere?
I think he's committed to Michigan either way.
DetNews.com later today that details the hardship and what led to Ty's decision. He spoke to his mother last night. He did say the waiver process is a lot different than most people have said and I assume Ty has a very good feeling he can play immediately. I'm sure they did a lot of research into the subject before this started.
