Huhh,.....I thought Wahee's eligibility had expired. Having him back healthy is F***ing fantastic!
Wahee was redshirted and played two seasons at Norfolk State. I don't know the details of his transfer, but he played for us last year, so it must have been a grad transfer or something. He's played 3 years, so he'll be a "redshirt senior" in 2019. Theoretically, he might be able to apply for a 6th year/medical redshirt since he only played 3 games for us last season, although...
A player who has already had a redshirt season and then qualifies for a medical redshirt in a subsequent season can be approved for a sixth year of eligibility. However, those cases are tougher to win, as the player is supposed to have missed two seasons for "circumstances beyond their control", where taking a redshirt as a true freshman would not typically meet that criteria.
As far as I know, his freshman/redshirt season was just because he was a freshman...not due to "circumstances beyond their control", so it'd be unlikely, but technically possible. If he were to be awarded that, he could actually play for us in 2019 and 2020.
Yeah, grad transfers typically come to schools with 1 year left, but since he graduated in 3 years and red-shirted, he had 2 years remaining. He would not be eligible for a medical hardship. He played in 6 games last year, but only had catches in 3.
Think Purple...lets think Gold as in Championships!!!

While I really doesn’t matter much as it’s all based on computer ratings and the previous year, Massey has us in the top 25. As long as our new QB (whomever it may be) is a player I think we will be in the top 3-4 of the MVFC. We lost a lot of seniors this past year but we still have a lot of talent. Can August be here already?

At this point we're big favorites to win against: North Alabama and Tennessee Tech
Favorites over: Montana State, Missouri State, South Dakota, and Southern Illinois
Toss-ups against: Colorado State, Indiana State, Illinois State, Youngstown State
Underdogs against Northern Iowa, and big underdogs against North Dakota State (no big surprise there).
