Parker Orms---what's he up to?

    Take a look at the kid's HS bio---pretty impressive! He seems to be one those individuals who can "will" his team to win in multiple sports. His final game in the 4A FB championship was amazing, taking a screen pass intended to move the chains, for the game-winning TD!

    I know he's playing safety as a first look and getting a shot at returning punts, I understand the coachs like his saavy, attitude and toughness, any other word on how he's doing or whether he'll RS?

    He's been mentioned a few times as having some good practices, but like most of the freshmen, he's expected to redshirt. Parker, and any other freshman, is likely to play only if the upperclassmen can't, for some reason.

    Only a few exceptions to that, one was Kasa, but now he's in limbo.

    Sounds like he has impressed Brown so far. I'd look for him to be a PR/KR down the road... get him the ball!!

    Should players get five years of eligibility instead of four?

    You mean five years playing eligibility? Which could be six with a redshirt year?

    I'm not sure if it would be 5 + 1 or just 5.

    I'd like to see that if a player starts as a freshman and plays 4 years straight, there is an allowance for them to finish a degree in the fifth year, whether or not they play. If I understand correctly (and I'm not sure), that rule changed, and now guys who play right away w/o redshirting have to complete degree in four years, or pay for the final semesters.

    That's not right.

    Not if we are saying education is important. A high percentage of regular students can't finish in four years, why do we ask athletes to play a sport AND finish quickly?

    scholarships are good for five years, but there's only four years of playing eligibility, barring the injuries and such.

    My friend on the football team back in '04 was able to finish his degree in five years. AJ - I'm not sure if they just changed the rule or not, but it used to be five years.

    The discussion, iirc, is to do away with redshirting and just say that student-athletes have 5 years of eligibility to play sports. Argument for it is that even non-athletes are taking closer to 5 years to complete a degree these days, so if the 4-years of eligibility rule was based on it being competitions among 4-year colleges, then 5-years of eligibility makes more sense if they're really 5-year colleges.

    Heard it changed and it caught a couple fifth year seniors by surprise.

    I think it makes a lot of sense.

    Yes, that's Parker's official height, although he's been listed at 6'0" on some profiles.
