Jamal McMurry-Retroactive Redshirt?

Postby Stallion » Wed Jan 02, 2019 11:08 pm

so apparently it was mentioned on TV broadcast-I guess there may be an argument that since he only played in 3 games in 2nd year at USF-he could get an extra year-but I'm not sure the new football red shirt year is applicable to Basketball. I've read about 5 articles saying it only applies to football but perhaps the NCAA is considering applying same rule to basketball which seems reasonable considering all the first semester transfers. NCAA has passed several rules that actually benefit players in last couple of years and definitely has decided to relax transfer rules

The old rule applied equally to ALL sports though as long as you didn't play in more than 20% of the regular season (12 games x .20= 3.2 games)-which was rounded up from 3.2 to 4 games. The new football rule was a set at 4 games and no longer was required that the player have a season ending injury in first half of the season. Applying same rule to Basketball you would get 30 games x.20= 6 games (with no round up)
"With a quarter of a tank of gas, we can get everything we need right here in DFW." -SMU Head Coach Chad Morris

When momentum starts rolling downhill in recruiting-WATCH OUT.

That would be huge for this program and might even result in next year's team being better than this year's, depending on whether a couple of guys can come in and contribute close to the same level as Foster and Dixon...which at this point still looks questionable. AND...it would be nice for the NCAA to give us a make up call after the probation they gave this program.

Without Foster I don’t think next years team would be better but it would have him and Whitt in the backcourt for a full second year.

Unfortunately, Foster isn't 100% yet, obviously...

I would bet that Hunt next year is better than what we get from a less than 100% Foster this year. White and Young will both improve to provide more depth, and the JUCO will be a nice replacement for Dixon. So IF McMurray comes back, the team could actually be better. However, I would be concerned if it just fills the hole of recruiting a high quality guard. You can see where the trickle down is Jank recruiting a guard he can "build", which will leave huge unknowns for the following year.

Unfortunately, I doubt this is allowed anyway.

Foster’s leadership is what makes this team tick even more so than his being 100%. There is a noticeable difference on how this team played before Foster returned and after he returned. I think he is the MVP of the team.

Agreed about Foster's impact. Foster knows how to win. I do think his return also overshadowed the impact of the emergence of Isiaha Mike who started to emerge right before Foster returned, which was a major boost as well. The hope is that Foster's attitude and culture is being passed on to Whitt, Mike, and/or Hunt who can carry that leadership and culture into the next season after experiencing and playing that way the whole season. I think those guys have the ability and personalities to be able to do so.
