    GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The Atlantic Coast Conference has proposed making football players eligible to compete for five years, saying the extra season might allow some students to get their degrees rather than leave school early.


    The ACC, which proposed the rule to the NCAA earlier this month, suggested that the NCAA eliminate redshirt seasons, when players are on the team but don't play. A redshirt season does not count toward eligibility.

I should help some of the 2nd and 3rd stringers get more playing time they might not have otherwise.

The star players will still bolt after 3 years, but some of those backup players might be able to improve their skills with an extra year and might get their degree AND a NFL job.

(I know this is a silly question)

Arent they there to get an education? If it meant more guys WOULD get thier degree, I would be all for it. If not, and its only a matter of playing time, then screw them, limit them to four years.

Thank you for your irrelevant opinion.

Gotta love how the NCAA has different rules for the haves and this case, Division I and everybody else.

My little brother is going to play Division III football this fall at UW-Stevens Point. His course of study is expected to take five years. Problem D-III, there's no such thing as redshirting. You come in right away, and even if you barely see the field, you can't "redshirt." You use up a year of eligibility right there.

So theoretically, by his 5th year of school, he won't be eligible to play football any his senior year. WAAAAYYYY bogus, NCAA.

Star wipe, and...we're out.
Thrillin' ain't easy.

I've found a new addiction... FANTASY FOOTBALL! Yahoo! has a fantasy football thing going on, and it's really cool. I'm kind of having fun, playing GOD with the players on my team.
