Thread: Kirk Smith -med redshirt???

  1. #1

    Default Kirk Smith -med redshirt???

    Hey does anyone know if Kirk Smith could get a medical redshirt if he doesn't wrestle again this season. From the looks his match with Perry, I would be very surprised if he was able to wrestle in the P10's or NCAA's. Sure hate to see a season lost at this stage by a top ranked wrestler. He has not redshirted at all to this point.

    He wrestled in 6 of 15 of BSU's scheduled events. That's 40%

    (d) In individual sports, the injury or illness occurs when the student-athlete has not participated in more than three
    dates of competition or 30 percent (whichever number is greater) of the maximum permissible number of dates of
    competition as set forth in Bylaw 17 plus one date for a conference championship (e.g., gymnastics: 13+1=14,
    wrestling: 16+1=17), regardless of whether the team participates in the conference championship, provided the
    institution is a member of a conference and the conference holds a championship event in the applicable sport.
    Dates of competition that are exempted per Bylaw 17 (e.g., alumni contests, foreign team in U.S.) from the
    maximum permissible number of dates of competition do not count toward the number of dates in which the
    student-athlete has participated.

    I don't know what all of that means, sounds like a "NO REDSHIRT" to me though.

    Wiltz-Bylaw 14.2.4 (b) also requires that the hardship take place during the first half of the season.

    I think the case could be made he was injured at the beginning of the season. He sat out until National Duals

    Thanks for the info guys. I really hate to see anyone end their season, let alone a career like that. Hopefully we have not seen the last of Kirk Smith. My 3 sons (6,9,11) really look up to him (they wrestle at a club in his High School and have met him several time- Great young man). They were crushed to see him lose last week. Some of the hard lessons of wrestling.

    Did they officially say his season is over? Seems like a lot of speculation yet I don't think a coach or doctor has said anything about the severity of the injury...

    Reminds me of watching Kish trying to wrestle through the pain of his back.
