the ability to redshirt and to allow a student athlete 5 years to complete his or her degree is not morally wrong. I believe no other major program has a redshirt system like ours. It unreasonably restricts the coaching staff and the athlete. Clinging to the nostalgic ideal of a four year graduation cycle is not helping.
This issue is far down the list of things that need to be corrected, but it needs to be addressed.
