Question about depth chart by class

Submitted by TK on October 4th, 2018 at 11:21 AM

On this site we have guys like:

McKeon, Eubanks, Dwumfour, Kemp, Uche and Long all listed as RS Sophomores even though all of them played their freshmen years. None of them played more than 4 games, but some played beyond the first 4 of the season. As in like late October. Wouldn’t all of these guys be juniors in eligibility because of the old rules? I thought the only way to get a redshirt if you played your freshmen season was if you had a season ending injury in the first four games of the season. And I’ve seen it other places as well. They referenced Uche as a RS sophomore. So don’t all these guys only have one more season or am I missing something?

“Season ending injury” is loosely defined. You could stub your toe, not play the rest of the season and apply for a redshirt and likely get it. Their eligibility is correct in all of their cases.
