Notre Dame thinking about applying for a hardship waiver for Shepard?







Glimpses this summer by McGraw of her own team’s future were muddled a bit by uncertainty in the present.


Specifically when it comes to senior post player Brianna Turner.


The rehab on her surgically repaired left knee has gone smoothly with no setbacks, but the decision on whether the two-time All-American will play at all in the coming season won’t likely be made until September





If Turner is not available this season, repeating and refining the small-ball approach is one option.


Another might be plugging the 6-foot-4, Jessica Shepard into the lineup. Maybe.


McGraw said the Irish are exploring whether applying for a hardship waiver for immediate eligibility for Shepard makes sense. As it stands, the former national Freshman of the Year and All-Big Ten selection as a sophomore at Nebraska must sit out the coming season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules.


“I think we have to plan on not having Jessica this season,” McGraw said, “but we’re going to put the paperwork together and see what happens.”



To be blunt, here's hoping the NCAA doesn't grant her the waiver should Notre Dame apply for it, for the crap she pulled on her teammates the past two years!!!

No hardship is involved.  The waiver should not be granted.

Definitely no hardship. Should have to set out. But seems like the NCAA seems to favor some teams at times. We'll see
