The Division I Council did not take action on the issue Wednesday of allowing redshirts in football to retain eligibility if they play in four games or fewer -- but the proposal is scheduled to go to vote in April and could go into effect this August. The proposal appears to have considerable support. If passed, it would replace the medical hardship rule. Said Miami AD Blake James, chair of the council: "I don't think it's right for a young man to lose a redshirt over what may be a need for a team in a competitive situation to have to find a player to play. Whether it's a bowl game or a game later in the season, personally I struggle with why we would take away the redshirt if they stay within a certain percentage [of games.]"
