Medical Scholarship does not exist. It is a common term used for medical hardship. Medical hardship also address injuries if occurred in senior year of high school, assuming some qualifiers are met.

If a player is not cleared medically, he cannot play until he's cleared. This is not the same as "at all".

If you have a link to compliance documents that I don't, please share.

There is no bylaw specifically addressing the issue of medical scholarships. 

That's because a medical scholarship does not exist in the eyes of the NCAA. Bylaw 14.2.4 address hardship waivers, which per 11W's article yesterday is the option the student athlete was presented with.

"As a result, Dean has decided to move on and pursue opportunities — both academically and athletically — elsewhere. Sources informed Eleven Warriors that Dean was presented an opportunity for a medical hardship so he could remain on academic scholarship at Ohio State, but he opted for a release from his scholarship in an attempt to get cleared medically elsewhere."

Medical hardship does not end one's playing eligibility.

Thad has taken his team much further than Cooper ever did. I know, I sat in the Shoe during Coops run.

Growning up I followed my local teams; Miami Dolphins, then Chicago Bears/Cubs/Blackhawks. Moved to Cleveland in 1978 and started following the Cleveland teams religiously, until '95 when the Browns moved and I denounced the NFL. Still haven't regained the passion for the NFL.

Ohio State fan since 1977. Only college team I've pulled for.
