Don't know the answer, but I hope not.
He can play. The odds of him doing anything significant are about 1000 to 1. That's no putdown, just the way it is.
Tiller let his team down this year, and I think he needs to wait until next year, and earn a spot on the team by going through preseason work outs and putting in his time.
If the staff thinks he can add something to the offense as a WR in the bowl game, he will play. If they don't think he is ready yet, he wont.
Tiller is paying his dues on the scout team right now. His teammates and coaches will make the determination of whether or not he is ready and deserves to play.
People need to get off their effing high horses. He has been punished by losing a season of eligibility. The staff will decide if he has redeemed himself or not.
You know what Tiller has done? 12 games.
You know what Tiller did in the meantime? Switched to a position where he could help the team win next year. Participated in practice to help make the team better this year. Put in all the work without the playing time. At the same time got his academics in order (if he is in fact eligible).
So If he is eligible and the staff think he is the player that offers the greatest chance to win I'm okay with playing him. Especially since his 'letting the team down' didn't involve anything close to how Albert Gary let the team down and he's been playing the last 9 games.
Call me crazy I'd be harder on the kid that robbed someone with a BB gun than with a kid who failed his math class.
Doesn't this include Donnie Jennert. He was academically ineligible as well, right?
A better question is does a healthy Jantz play at Pinstripe.
Donnie would be a much bigger addition to the WR corps than Tiller would be. Its too had he stopped coming to games.
Yeah, if he is eligible, and can contribute and make the team better, then I'd let him play. Obviously he'd have to have earned it over others who are competing for playing time.
