    Re: Bell Injury May Lead to Emergence of Freshman WR Chris Black

    I found it interesting that the timing of Chris Black being cleared for contact almost immediately after Kenny Bell's injury. IF Bell hadn't got hurt... then maybe Chris would've been cleared for contact after the SEC championship game. Something is telling me that we'll see combination of Shinn, Cyrus Jones, Chris Black, Norwood, Cooper in the game... and Someone is having a huge game, I just don't know who. If Chris Black plays, then Look for him to get the ball early in the game, to draw attention away from Cooper and from this point on, Defense will have hard time containing them.

    I honestly think Chris will play this weekend, I really do... because something is telling me Coach Nick got few bags up his tricks, and now is the time to use it.... I don't have problem with CNS burning his redshirt. I think we'll see him gone by Jr year or maybe senior.

    is it possible? yes. no. we don't know. I think it's a good call by CNS to get them to start thinking about Chris Black. We know they will pay attention to cooper, norwood, and others.

    personally i think anytime you have to burn a redshirt for a game where your a TD favorite it is a bad bad sign. if we burn the redshirt im going to start to worry because obviously the staff is worried.

    You get your best players on the field in order to win the game. Especially if that W means a trip to the national championship.

    I hope the staff is worried.

    Re: Bell Injury May Lead to Emergence of Freshman WR Chris Black

    Maybe instead of looking at it like CNS is going to "burn the red shirt" why don't we just consider the fact that this guy was going to play before he got hurt this season. His season just got shortened because of any injury.

    I just don't understand the wringing of hands over this. If he plays...even if he doesn't catch a pass...it apparently was deemed important by the staff.

    And if he's as good as advertised he'll only play for two more years anyway so saving this year won't matter.

    Re: Bell Injury May Lead to Emergence of Freshman WR Chris Black

    If I recall, Chris was the #2 rated WR prospect in last year's class, and I know we had some moderators saying that he was the cream of the cream of this year's WR class before he was injured. That right there tells me he is going to be able to contribute, and with Cooper having such a great year, and Norwood coming on so strong over the last few weeks, Chris will likely be able to get open against a nickel back or safety. I hope he has a great game.

    I have no concerns about "burning" a red shirt year. It seems the same as the situation in 2009 when we learned that AJ was GMac's real backup and that he would have come into the game if McElroy went down. There is no doubt in my mind that Chris wants to play, and IMO it would be unfair to the rest of the team if a player who could help us win was left on the bench even though he could have played. These guys have been working for 12 months to get this this spot - they deserve to have the best chance to win the game, regardless of what may or may not happen 3 years down the road.

    My only concern about Chris is that his shoulder is truly 100%. I would hate for him to be rushed back into the lineup and then re-injure himself.

    I don't see how this is an issue at all. Right now I can think of only 4 5th year seniors we have Williams, Lester, Barret, and Square. To me that tells me it really isn't that big of an issue to burn the redshirt.

    Even if it was a big issue this is a huge game with huge implications. If he increases our chances of winning then he absolutely should play and I think it would be a mistake to not play him.

    This is remarks from Mark Edwards blog after the viewing portion of Mondays Practice. Sounds good to me.


    TUSCALOOSA, Alabama — The Crimson Tide practiced inside its indoor facility today in shorts, shoulder pads and helmets.

    We saw true freshman receiver Chris Black in a regular white jersey instead of the black non-contact jersey, which is what injured players are assigned. He looked explosive when running his routes.

    I must say I am excited about Mr. Black. He is really going to be hungry and wanting to show what he is capable of. Let's hope we see him on SportsCenter.

    Fans worry about "blowing" a redshirt year, but I would wager that Mr. Black is stoked to see this redshirt burned.

    A chance to make your first appearance in the SEC championship and possibly play in a national championship game? Knowing going in that the coaches obviously have big plans for you I they choose to play you. Yeah I'll take that if I'm a true freshman.
