There is also a rule where you can only play four years in a five year window, hence the room for a redshirt season. That will be extended to six years.
Some teams are limited on roster size. Those rosters and amount of scholarship spots will be increased for a year.
The teams this works for at UofL include lacrosse, softball, track and field, tennis, golf, and rowing, according to how the NCAA breaks down a season and championship.
That is great for many of our student-athletes, especially the ones who were seniors.
Sadly, but as expected, winter sports are not included, meaning basketball is over. We saw five of our women's basketball seniors throw on a Louisville jersey for the final time.
Photo Highlights: Swimming and Diving
Another sport whose season ended prematurely is swimming and diving. Their regular season and ACC Championships had concluded but the NCAA Championships never happened. Today, we take a look at some of the best photos from their season.
A bit of commentary...
It is difficult to catch meets since many of them occur on a Friday afternoon or Saturday morning and conflict with work, but I was fortunate enough to make it to a couple meets this season and hope to do so again next season.
To help protect myself and those around me I cancelled my visit to see Katy in a month. As the COVID-19 worsens I did not want to put anyone at risk. Delta was understanding enough to offer me a refund for my flight down. My flight coming back was through American and those cold-hearted Muffet McGraw-esque folks cared about nothing but profits. It's almost as bad as the no call in the final seconds of the Final Four when Myisha Hines-Allen went in for a layup.
Happy Tuesday, stay safe, and Go Cards!
