Our BU friends are at it again

Consider our friends from BU. They have a very fine ice hockey goalie who has finished her four years and graduated. She is now a graduate student and will be a FIELD HOCKEY goalie on the BU team this year. Her name is Kerrin Sperry. Does she have four more years of eligibility even as a graduate student and playing a different sport??

Maybe Bison 137 will know..he seems to be the expert on these things!!

She can play another sport (or 2, or 3, I guess) but is restricted by the five-year rule.

14.2 SEASONS OF COMPETITION : FIVE -YEAR RULE
"A student-athlete shall not engage in more than four seasons of intercollegiate competition in any one sport…"
14.2.1 Five-Year Rule. A student-athlete shall complete his or her seasons of participation within five calendar years from the beginning of the semester or quarter in which the student-athlete first registered for a minimum full-time program of studies in a collegiate institution…"

BU exploiting their grad school advantage, IMO, is another reason they shouldn't be a PL member.  Within the rules, but within the spirit of the PL?  I guess the league is big time now and we have to expect this stuff.

Yet another example of how clueless the presidents in the League are.
