    Default Olympic Redshirts

    Seems to be common knowledge, or at least readily assumed that Herbert is going to take one. Anyone heard of anybody else who's planning on taking one? Anyone who you think it would be in their best interests to take one?

    Get him away from the juggernaut that is Jayson Ness for another year too...

    I'm taking an Olympic redshirt from work this year, if anyone cares.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Word Champ Kind...my redshirt is strictly mental.

    T Nick won't make 125 next year anyway and if he does, Ness will eat him for breakfast. Ness didn't look like he struggled at all to make weight.

    Yup, even though the Ivies don't offer "Olympic" shirts. For an Olympic year waiver at a non-Ivy, the athlete must withdraw from school for the year. You can do that at an Ivy too and not lose a year of eligibility. The U Penn boys do all the time. The last to do it for Penn was a 133 lber, I think his name is Valenti.
