    If Coach thinks Black is ready to contribute, then who are we to argue?

    Bell Injury May Lead to Emergence of Freshman WR Chris Black

    Burning a redshirt on someone as talented as Black seems to be is probably not a big deal. Chances are good someone like that only plays through his junior class year anyway.

    If we're really at the point that we would burn a year of eligibility for a super talented kid for a game or two, then we obviously haven't been doing as good a job as we like to think we have in recruiting (or developing talent). We have a ton of WR's, and surely to God a couple of them could step it up when faced with the alternative of causing one of their teammates to burn a year just for 2 games.

    Saban has done a good job recruiting, remember that we lost 3 seniors and had 3 current receivers (including Black) season end due to injuries.

    Burning a redshirt is not that big of a deal at a program like Alabama. Most players who are ready for the NFL only need 3 years. Even after this year he has 3 full years left in the program. Don't think of it as he is the difference of winning or losing. I will think of it more like, does he bring something to the table that no one or only 1 other wr does. if that is the case then you play him b/c he might be the difference of only 1 or 2 first downs in a game or a blocked punt. but those few plays "could" make a big difference. Coaches never worry about players who burned a redshirt unless they were borderline to be drafted after 4 years anyway. how many redshirt seniors have we had on Saban's teams?

    It's all Coach Sabans call but I would guess he has a real strong practice week with Norwood, both Jones, Vogler, Williams. We all know what Cooper cn do but just like the NCG LY I see Norwood really coming thru.

    What ever is decided Coach will do the Right Thing.

    I'm not saying Black is another Julio, but would we burn a red shirt if it were Julio in this situation?

    If he's really ready for game time, game day combat/contact and he wants to play in the SEC CG, and if we win doing the same in the BCS NCG, then let's do it. We may not get this chance again for at least a year. The loss of Bell was a BIG loss, just like #1 and #45.

    How does he #5, Black, compare to #22 Christian Jones and #80 Shinn? And how about #81 Woodson who's father played QB at Bama? Can anyone on the roster replace Bell without taking the red-shirt off of Chris Black?

    I had that feeling earlier. Black is likely a 3great and done player barring injury. If he can be as productive as once thought the redshirt means nothing.

    If I have counted correctly, we only have five healthy scholarship wr's. That is not a ton.

    Exactly. Black's redshirt would have been long gone anyway if he hadn't got hurt. We have lost our leading reciever (at the time), and now our leading yards per catch receiver. We lost two of our fastest receivers, and as good as some of the others are, you can't teach or coach pure speed.

    If Black is taking some hits come monday....then that may be an indicator. If no contact in next few days, i do not see him playing. So we will watch for practice notes.
