    I have seen some guys that Olympic redshirts that had no business doing so in my opinion.

    Okay, so I see a loophole for getting that second redshirt year without being injured for two years.

    Actually missions fall into a different category. They are pretty much the same as military service. The NCAA "clock" stops for that time since the student-athlete isn't even on a campus for that time.

    I thought the NCAA had to approve an Olympic redshirt. Not that they have not allowed anyone (I don't really know) but you can't just say "I'm taking an Olympic redshirt"
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
