    Yeah, I'll try it for the first time!
    I couldn't get it to register me last year, but this year no problems. That's a good sign, eh?

    I don't. This contest is pretty random to me, but it makes it a lot more fun watching the games!

    What I don't get is this stuff - "Quarterback Sean Clifford announced on Friday that he will return to Penn State for a sixth year.

    Due to the complications presented by COVID-19 during the 2020 fall season, the NCAA granted an extra year of eligibility to all fall athletes. That allows Clifford to return to Penn State for a second redshirt senior season."

    A sixth year? Why do they even allow fifth years?

    A "redshirt" year means a year you didn't play. Or only played under a de minimus amount of snaps. That way, a developing scrub doesn't lose an entire year just by taking a few snaps in garbage time. So that accounts for "five years" of eligibility: one year on the bench and four years playing.

    The NCAA is generally crediting the "COVID" year as a redshirt year for everyone. It was such a weird situation that a number of players who never would have played under normal circumstances got playing time and, more importantly, a number of would be stars might have played past the de minimus amount to count against their eligibility time, but then COVID (or COVID protocols) benched them for basically most of a season, no fault of themselves. Allowing that to be considered a redshirt year was seemed as a fair deal for those players.

    Oh, ok. I guess I kinda see that sitting out a year playing. Sort of. And I guess Covid is a good excuse for an extra year since most schools didn't have in person attendance.

    But at some point don't they have to graduate. I mean six years? The guy should have a Master's.

    You can continue to play after you graduate if you still have eligibility left. If fact, before the transfer portal that is how a lot of players would get to transfer. They would graduate and then "need" to get their masters elsewhere. That is how Russell Wilson went from NC State to Wisconsin.

    So, they just reset the numbering system because of the cancelled games?

    I can't remember but I'm pretty sure I hade a 44 point game that is now worth 40 points?

    Yes, as games are canceled they shift the point values down. So if you had a game as 19 points but the game you valued as 18 gets canceled, your 19 becomes 18. We are down 4 so far so there were 44 but it only goes to 40 now.
