Guidelines for Medical Hardship Waiver Requests
For a student-athlete to receive a Medical Hardship Waiver per Bylaw 14.2.4, the following four conditions must be met:
The student-athlete may not have participated in more than two contests or dates of competition or 20 percent of the team's completed contests/dates of competition.
The injury or illness must occur prior to the completion of the first half of the season.
The injury or illness does not have to occur during practice/competition, but it must be incapacitating.
Appropriate medical documentation must exist and be provided.
So, essentially, no chance.
And since Richardson played against Hawaii, Cal, Colorado State, Ohio State, and Washington State (i.e. 5 games) I would say the answer is no.
I believe it's now 30% of games/quarters played, not 20%.
If his name is Marcus Houston then yes, otherwise no.
In fact, the NCAA is considering counting this as two seasons.
Separate names with a comma.
