Rare, it seems, is the NCAA rule that actually makes anyone happy. So imagine the shock Wednesday when the organization announced a new mandate that should make everyone happy.
Division I football players are now allowed to play up to four games and still qualify for a redshirt. Wide receiver Racey McMath is among the last LSU players who will suffer as result of the old rules.
McMath appeared in LSU’s first two games as a freshman, then never touched the field again.This spring McMath grabbed the attention of teammates and coaches with how well his physical style fits into new offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger’s more spread-based offense.
