Chip Towers commented that he'd be awarded a medical redshirt to regain the year of eligibility. Has that procedure changed?
My understanding is that you can't apply for a medical redshirt until after you've exhausted all of you eligibility. How can you be awarded something you're not even eligible for?
Additionally, the NCAA typically only awards a medical redshirt to a player that used his redshirt for something other than development.. So if Mitchell used his redshirt for getting bigger and stronger, there's a good chance he wouldn't be awarded a medical redshirt.
Did anyone see Clemson enter the field for this game? Coming down the hill one of the WRs took a huge jump off the steepest part at the bottom and you could tell he immediately regretted it. I don't think he was injured or anything but his feet were a good 6-8 feet off the ground at his highest point and he wasn't paying attention.
