That's what seems a little unfair to me. Keeping the cap of number of scholly players is going to cause freshmen to lose a year of covered education. This could really factor into recruiting, programs with lots of returning seniors may have weak classes. IDK, maybe keep the cap on the number of scholly players that can participate but still allow schools to cover the cost of freshmen not playing (like a red shirt).

Guess I might be confused and/or making this more complicated than it is. Programs that had talented seniors will benefit from getting another year vs younger programs, but are freshmen really getting hosed by this?

Some seniors will be hosed, some freshmen will be hosed. When we kept Cardon Johnson around for a sixth year a freshman got hosed. The same for Semenov staying around, a freshman got hosed. We let Justin Thorpe go under the same conditions, this hosed the senior but benefited a freshman.

Apples vs Oranges comparison.

You are comparing a specific situation impacting a single athlete vs a situation impacting every senior and scholarship athlete in the NCAA.

Well, bless your heart, I feel so stupid. I grew up on a farm.

RE: 2020 Dukes Softball
I think just Natalie Cutright. The other seniors on roster at the start of the season were Roadcap and Arnold. I think Cambry was injured and might be transferring for her final year. Roadcap was academically ineligible.
