It's interesting that Carvy has taken the opposite tack and told the current roster guys to take their fifth year elsewhere. "Four years in a program is enough."

I presume he had candidates in the pipeline and needed to free up scholarship money, although Ice hockey has 18 full rides, MLax has 12.6.

Which is understandable b/c you can see how it can be detrimental to the program and to the development of the younger players when the playing time is taken up by a large group of 5th yr seniors simply b/c the NCAA said they can come back and it puts the Coach in an awkward position and likely messes w/team dynamics. Oh well, its another aspect of the pandemic that is largely going to be in the rear view mirror very soon.

But, it also helps when you have incoming recruits who are better than some of the SRs/GTs. There is only so much ice time
