    That sucks. Kind of out of his control so what can a guy do? Glad to see he'll be on academic scholarship this year. Was looking forward to seeing a true 7 footer but on the positive not, we did get a juco transfer

    15X FOOTBALL NATIONAL CHAMPIONS! Since 1960, NDSU has more Football Championships than any team in the NFL , D1A, D1AA, D2 or D3
    1965-1968-1969-1983-1985-1986-1988-1990-2011-2012-2013-2014-2015-2017-2018

    Is he on track to graduate at the end of this upcoming junior school year? If not why wont he keep his scholly for his senior year?
    If we concentrated on the really important stuff in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles"

    When you play football, you gotta like the taste of blood, And 50 percent of the time, it's your blood.

    It is characteristic of the unlearned that they are forever proposing something which is old, and because it has recently come to their own attention, supposing it to be new.

    I believe you're only allowed to use a Medical Exemption on a player for one season per player, if they kept him on scholly next year it would count against our available scholarships.

    Bummed that injuries derailed his career, was interested to see how he'd do, as soon as we signed a 6'10" JUCO player last week I said right away it was only a matter of time before this was announced.

    Frightening.

    I can't imagine have to leave basketball because of a medical problem with Meidinger.
    ...of course, I could be wrong. (I'm not, but whatever.)

    If I remember correctly Hank Jacobs had to quit the FB team because of injuries and they honored the the scholarship. So I find this strange.

    Yeah, but a single basketball scholarship is a a lot more valuable to the health of the program.

    Good luck to Jordan, injuries must be a tough way to end his career. Sucks!

    Perhaps they moved him over to an assistant or handled it somewhat like work study. I do remember him leaving the team because of injuries



    I like to surround myself with people who share in my inappropriate comments, sarcasm, and random shenanigans

    I hurt my wrist really bad once, but I can't imagine what life would be like I couldn't play with Meidinger anymore.

    At one of the signing parties they talked about commitment and how they stuck by Hank and honored their commitment to him even though he couldnt play anymore.
    As they should have I might add.
