You are correct the NCAA will allow all players an extra year of eligibility if they don't compete in more than 4 games (if their program had a abbreviated season). And they'll even expand scholly limits I think FCS will get a 15 scholarship bump and FBS will get 20 for the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 academic calendar years. However if the programs can't afford to cover the extra tuition/fees they will force 5th year seniors and even some 4 year seniors out or reduce their awards (FCS) from full rides to partials.

No matter how it plays out someone will benefit and someone will not. Expanded scholarships and rosters are a bad deal for some talented walk-one; don’t expand the seniors lose out. It’s a no-win whatever the decision.

Not all redshirt seniors at ND are invited back for their 5th year. It's based on need at the position, your skilsl & other factors.

They look at it like, you've earned your ND degree, it's our, not yours, decision if you get a 5th-year. The Golics are a perfect example, Mike Jr, was invited back, as he was a starter as a Redshirt Jr, & brother Jake was not... This was the reason why Jake completed his 5th year that the Univerisity of Cinncinatti!

College football is a business!

Unfortunately you're absolutely correct College Football Is A Business. I had a kid who signed and spent 3 years at a ACC school his first two he played sparingly on ST and was primed to if not start as a Jr be in the rotation heavily but the HC left to go to an SEC school and he was stuck learning a new scheme under a new HC, made the adjustment very well and still was buried on the depth chart because Boosters felt he wasn't good enough (no disciplinary issues and he was good in the classroom), he voluntarily left and when he went to transfer to an SEC school the HC told the SEC school he was a bad kid and they rescinded their offer now. Coming out of HS his HC told him to stay away from that school due to politics but the big name and it's location lured him there. 18-19 year olds don't see it as a business until they're already there and see the other side that isn't shown on TV on Saturdays.
