That's how I understand it. May be worth it.

Patterson is one of the players who is petitioning the NCAA to play next season. We'll see how it plays out. But you're right, it may be worth it either way. He'd be a redshirt junior in 2019.

Unless the players are seniors they still have to sit out a year correct?

Patterson and apparently other players are petitioning the NCAA for immediate eligibility.  All the talking heads seem to think that the NCAA will be inclined to grant these petitions.

The NCAA will open a can of worms they don't want if they allow immediate eligibility to undergrad transfers.  These players were told a hundred times to commit to a school not a coach.  There are coaches fired every year.  There have been very few undergrad transfers allowed immediate eligibility.  Why should these get preferential treatment?

Well, if the NCAA is going to let undergrad kids be eligible to play next year then please go and get that tight end and a couple recievers to come to AU.

The argument is being made that the school misled them about the severity of the possible sanctions and they had nothing to worry about....well, not much at least.    

Might or might not be true.....but in my case at least, I was surprised at how hard they got hit on the schollys which was about the next thing to a death penalty......a form of slow starvation rather than an actual execution.
