Red Shirt Rules

Moments ago I noticed that www.goeags.com updated their roster.  I thought this might be a good time to review the rules associated with red-shirting players.   

While a player may be designated as red-shirted by a coach at the beginning of the year, it is not confirmed until the end of the season after review of playing time and continued eligibility for the designation. Additionally a player that is designated as “red-shirted” before the season may still be utilized should the need arise.

The thresholds for the designation are straightforward:
  • Must not have participated in more than two contests;
  • or 20% of the school's completed contests, whichever is greater.

Not rocket science here, folks, but good information for the novices out there!
