HOOPS: The rule is the rule

Chris Warren played too many games to be considered for a medical redshirt and will be a junior when basketball practice begins next fall. Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy addressed Warren is a season-ending wrap with Jeff Roberson of the Ole Miss Spirit.

Says Kennedy: “We will appeal (to get Chris Warren another year), but he is one game over,” Kennedy said of the point guard’s situation. “We’ve researched it, and nobody has been able to win that appeal because the rule is the rule. It’s unfortunate for him, but it is what it is.”

    While watching the NCAA tournament the announcers discussed a player that earlier in his career had the same type of injury situation as Warren, and the player was given half of an additional season, and was given the choice whether to play the first half or the second half. Warren should be given the same opportunity.

    I guess that seems better than nothing, but there are a lot of issues to consider with that.

    You immediately think of playing the back half of the season, but then the team spends two months playing without you, people learning roles and developing chemistry. Then you’re supposed to come in out of game shape in January and impact immediately? Sounds tough.

    I agree, but if the team did make it to the NCAA tournament they would have adjusted to him being in the lineup, and with his talent it seems like sacrificing a few conference games would be worth the trade off
