    When DeAndrew gets back next year -- we have to start playing "Black or White" over the PA systems

    Howard:What? Galileo did his best work while drinking wine!
    Raj: How do you know that?
    Howard: He was Italian, it's a reasonable assumption.
    Raj: Dude, can you even open your mouth without saying a cultural stereotype?
    Howard: I'm sorry Galileo drank diet sprite!

    2 games out of 12 regular season games would qualify for a med RS. This is why Jalston Fowler will certainly get this year of eligibility back but Kenny Bell and DeAndrew White are out of luck. The issue is that Black is poised to participated in post-season play and I don't know what the rules are for that situation.

    As another person said I think it has to be you play at the beginning of the year and then get hurt. Don't think it works the other way around but I'm no expert.

    Yeah, common sense - though NCAA rules occasionally lack such - tells you that it means you were unable to play for over 75% of the season not you only played in less than 25% of the season. Otherwise, someone could get hurt in their first time on the field mid-season after working their way up the depth chart and get a med RS. It is only for players that get injured in the first or second game in all practicality. If you come back in the post-season or get hurt in game 3 and forward...you just used a year of eligibility.

    From Saban's press conference today:

    @CecilHurt: Saban on Chris Black: "This decision was made by Chris and his family, not just by me. Chris wants to play, can help the team by playing."

    Agree with Bigalstide. Quite a step from your last game being a high school playoff game to the SEC Championship against the #3 team in the country. If CNS thinks he can do it, though, I'm sure he can. I've eard it said WR is the easiest position to transition from level to level. Run fast, catch ball, run faster.

    I know it must have been tough for Chris to watch from the sidelines, but it would be great for him to contribute to an SEC and National Championship.

    The trick in it is that it has to be the injury which interrupts your continued play - and it's discretionary with the NCAA. That's the reason I said above that it's theoretically possible for a weaker player to not make the field until later in the year and have injury stop his year without the requisite number of quarters of participation - just very unlikely. It's just improbable in the extreme with a good player. Only a double injury (and there have been a few of those - OK had one happen a few years ago) would normally cause it with really good player.Also, as I said above, given his ability demonstrated in HS and the spring, without further injury, there's just no reason to think a med RS would ever be applied for...
