What's the precedent to work in Pittman's favor on a 6th year?

Well he still has eligibility left after being injured. I can't remember how it's done exactly but I think if you don't play in X amount of games due to injury you are allowed to appeal and gain the year back.

In other words if you get hurt on the first play of the season as a senior, you can appeal and try to get that year back. I think anyway.

I think it's called a medical hardship redshirt. Didn't Chase Lyman get one of those at UCLA?

Anyway, this site says Pittman is staying:
