The seven-year program 

Stephen wonders about a college athlete who almost needed a seventh year to complete his four years of NCAA eligibility.
Consider, however, the eligibility follies inherent in transferring, sitting out, then petitioning for additional eligibility ... with none of it for pay. Note also that the young man's academic progress (or lack thereof) is not newsworthy. One would think that he would be able to have finished a degree at Illinois by now, and suited up as a senior at large.
