Is Peck out for the season? If so, is his injury career threatening?

Anonymous said...

how come Max Groebe barely plays? what's the deal? we could really use his offense

I'd like to know too. Seriously, what's with the mystery surrounding Cornell's injured players?

The Cornell Basketball Blog said...

There is no mystery and we've answered the question multiple times.

Peck is out for the season and is expected back next year.

Brian Delaney may interview some of the injured guys later in the season.

Sorry to hear about Peck. Hopefully he can recovery fully. Quick question: under Ivy rules, can you preserve the year of eligibility if due to injury? Or does Peck only have one more year of eligibility?

The Cornell Basketball Blog said...

As long as there is an academic purpose, a 5th year is granted. Peck should have no problem getting the 5th year in this situation.

Wow, if that's the case, then losing Peck this season and extending his college career another may actually be beneficial (I'm using that word loosely, fully recognizing no one wants to be injured) if Cornell is more competitive in 2 years.

I'm glad to hear that Peck has the option to come back for a fifth year. But do you know if he actually wants to come back?

Normally, when we talk about football or basketball players who come back for a fifth year, we're talking about BCS players who are on full scholarship. There is no financial outlay by their parents to come back for a fifth year.

But in the Ivies, some guys are on need-based financial aid and some guys are charged full freight to the tune of some $50,000 per year.

Because basketball season spans both academic semesters, coming back for a fifth basketball season *could* entail asking a player's parents to shell out up to another 50 grand.

Why are you so confident that Mr. and Mrs. Peck want to do so?

The Cornell Basketball Blog said...

Errick could have rushed his recovery to get back for this season. He opted to red-shirt to preserve his eligibility.

While anything is possible 2-3 years from now, the plan in place is for Errick to play 2 more season for Cornell starting next season.

Just to clarify, am I to understand that, as soon as he was injured, Peck withdrew from school and received a full financial credit from Cornell for having done so, with the ability to apply any monies already paid for 2011-12 to the following years?

I'm the same poster who asked about how fifth-year players are treated financially. A lot of football players seem to come back for a fifth and I've always wondered if their parents have to come up with another $50,000.

Imagine...Peck, Miller, Cherry, and Cancer on the floor at the same time. That's a pretty athletic team, with a potentially good center next year.

The Cornell Basketball Blog said...

Peck did not withdraw.

Unknown said...

the chances that Peck is paying 50k are: 1. slim, and 2. none.

If Peck did not withdraw, that speaks directly to my point. A player from Princeton who broke his foot very early this season just withdrew academically so that he could preserve his ability to play basketball for four full seasons. He will only be a student at Princeton four academic years. I'm guessing that the school will credit his fall 2011 tuition paid toward his fall 2012 bill.

But if Peck did not withdraw, then he will actually be a student at Cornell for five academic years. Who pays for that?

Because Ivy financial aid is need-based, it seems that a low income player has a lot more flexibility to red-shirt (because the school will pick up the tab via financial aid) than a player from a high income family (whose parents would have to pay for year five out of their own pocket).

If this is true, that's something for higher income families to think about when choosing between an Ivy and a scholarship school. At an Ivy, if your kid gets injured and needs to red-shirt, you're out another $50,000.

The Cornell Basketball Blog said...

In short, the Princeton player withdrew from school because Princeton and Harvard have rules that students must graduate in 4 years and do not permit students to remain on campus for 5 consecutive. It is not an issue for students at other Ivies.

The issue of the Princeton student withdrawing had nothing to do with financial aid.

Anonymous said...

The question is not why did the Princeton player withdraw. The question is will Errick Peck or his parents end up paying five years' worth of tuition?

What about Gatlin? He's in a similar situation -- losing his senior year to injury. Is he planning on returning for another year?

The Cornell Basketball Blog said...

Gatlin is a 5th year senior this year. If he came back, it would be for a 6th year.

It would be almost impossible to justify to the Ivy office why he would need a 6th undergrad season.
