5th Year Seniors In Kentucky Athletics


Recommended Posts

Interesting. I was under the impression that most Kentucky seniors were already on the Van Widler graduation plan.

Ridiculous. Just move on, like every other state in the union has.

it just means more...SEC SEC SEC...oh wait

 

I could see it in many of these states where they haven't even gone back to school at all this year (2020-21), but in Texas we've essentially been in all year...my school we've not shut down a single day for COVID (we've had staff, departments, students, classes, etc out) but it's with the district losing so much money already due to students being on remote and not logging on (so not attending)...even when it was boiling hot & heavy, we weren't shutting down, just bring on the hefty brand body bags and refrigerated trucks.

This is good for those seniors who missed everything I dont see anything wrong with this

So, next years seniors will be behind 2nd year seniors? They get an extra year? And the seniors after that?

Unfortunate but move on. High school shouldn't be the pinnacle of one's life.

This is crazy 1st because thee ncaa is messed up because of players staying and with recruiting. gonna make it harder. yes it stinks because you missed a year. But its high school go walk on somewhere and earn it. This should have happened between this year and last year ( for spring sports only) not now.

So next years seniors need another year, and the next, then the next, and so on? 

Unfortunate, but have to move on.

No just the one that missed not every year after or before just the 2020 kids.

You are basically doing the same thing to next years seniors, and if you let them stay you are doing it to the next. Why are they any different?

why would you think this wouldn't then affect a big % of the athletes that were going to be actual SR's in 2022. now they will miss the attention they would have got...if they stay...the repetition ripples down. I have personally said that everything should have been a "gap year" nearly. if schools were in and kids were progressing properly then by all means move them along...if not then they go back to where they were when the pandemic started.

If I had a freshman daughter in kentucky i would think seriously about moving. I Graduated when i turned 19( 2nd in my class so not do to failing just staring late) and had some players turn 19 during the season. So they would would be 20 with a 14-15 year old freshman.. not kosher for me.

So unfair to one, but ok for others? 

Then just move on and unfair to last year, fair to everyone moving forward.

So next year's seniors don't get their senior year to shine? More kids means that 2022 senior doesn't get their chance. Move on.
