    Makes it suck even more since it was an illegal tackle.

    So, then what’s the purpose of the medical “redshirt,” if not for this exact situation?

    And I thought it was more of a situation in which, after next season, he would apply for the extension and potentially be granted an additional year.

    I mean, when Case Keenum was at Houston, he got a 6th year. So, is the difference that Wilson transferred? Good to know.

      You have to have lost two seasons for reasons beyond your control. Playing the one year in junior college counts against the 5 year window to play 4 years, as does the redshirt year at Oregon. It sucks, but that’s the rule.

    I think the reality is no one wants to speak on something so far in the future.
    We may have another QB or two…plus another knee-rehabber who may have something to say about who starts at QB for Kentucky in the Fall of 2021….assuming TW is even the starter Fall 2020….

    Medical redshirts usually happen when they are injured early in their 5th year.

    …thought he couldn’t apply for medical hardship year till after his eligibility was exhausted, and only then would it be taken up for consideration …

      He was asked the question by a reporter. His reply means that Terry won’t be eligible for a 6th year, so UK won’t apply for it when the time comes.

    I appreciate everything TW has done for us, and wish him a speedy recovery. That said, whether we want to admit it or not, his days of being our QB1 are done. Time to start developing the talent we have and progress them along and allow them to become THE QB to lead us to the next step. To take that next step we’ve got to realize relying on a grad transfer QB year in and year out is not the long game answer. Those are stop gap measures. Power Conf perennials recruit and develop top tier QBs. Time to join the fold.

      I believe TW will be the starting QB next season, he’s a tough one.

    I don’t entirely disagree, but I think we have GOT to start developing some of our QBs that we recruit. So long as we keep going the JuCo route for our signal caller, no HS QB of program elevating status will consider us. IMO.
