    Bell Injury May Lead to Emergence of Freshman WR Chris Black

    From his Presser tonight:

    From TideSports: Saban on Bell loss: "We may have to revisit whether we redshirt Chris Black."
    "I didn't come to Alabama to win 10 games a year and be a contender. I came here to win championships. Conference championships and national championships. I love it here because that's just not what I want, but what this fanbase expects."
    --Alabama Head Football Coach, Nick Saban

    “Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on it’s ability to climb a tree, it will spend it’s whole life believing it is stupid.” — Albert Einstein

    I think Saban said Black wasn't cleared for contact yet on his radio show the other night but has been practicing. I have very high thoughts about Black's ability to play the WR position, and thought before the season he could be just as good as Amari Cooper is now.

    You are correct, I think it's next year For Black, he is a special talent & Coach will not up him at risk if he is not ready.

    Win now. You never know how things will be tomorrow. Besides, Coach Saban has some checklist items to review before he does this. So whatever happens, it will be for a good reason. IMHO.

    Black has been medically cleared for contact per ESPN. Saban still may redshirt him but will wait and see.

    i called this yesterday, boom.

    if he can contribute in the next two games then burn the redshirt, if he doesnt give us anything cyrus and shinn do than keep it on him and go with what we have. If he hadn't gotten hurt they would have been playing him all season anyway, so I have a feeling we'll see him on saturday. He looked really good on A day.

    True, I know what you're saying, but if it gives us a little more depth and increases our chances to finish a season with a NC, then I say it is a no brainer.

    If he's the difference between winning, or not winning, a national championship... then you play him.
    Watch your thoughts; they become words.

    Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

    If he's healthy and the report about him being cleared for contact is true I DEFINITELY say "burn the redshirt" because I fully believe he can contribute big time in the passing game. He is solid enough to take the hurt of Kenny Bell away and could put up some very good numbers IMHO. Black was/is the real deal.

    Absolutely, but I don't think one WR is that difference, when we have Norwood and Cooper who are doing very well. I think it is a very close call.
