I'm not saying he should play. I'm not saying he shouldn't play.
I don't care if he plays or not.
If he does I hope he has a great game.
My every post was simply trying to say that I would be surprised if Saban played him.
That's all, that's it, and if I'm wrong so be it and good If I'm right, who cares, as long as we win
Sip, you would make a good politician!
The thing is that we've been rotating 6-deep at WR before Bell went down: Norwood, Cooper, Bell, Ch. Jones, Shinn, and Cy. Jones. The last two didn't get a lot of snaps, but they have occasionally seen the field to spell guys even before it was "blowout conditions." Black was definitely a better talent than either Shinn or Cy. Jones heading into the season but the injury kept him off the field. He would have probably already have been in the rotation if they weren't trying to hold his redshirt considering Bell could duplicate a lot of Black's strong suits.

im in the minority but i think the only way he plays is if the other WR's struggle getting open or someone goes down with injury.
I know Coach Saban's job is to win championships.
At the same time, all I was saying, is that my gut feeling is that he will give the players who have gone through every game the entire season the first opportunity to show they can get the job done before he places such a big burden on a youngster who hasn't played a down.
That's it. That's all it was.
If it turns into a situation where he's needed, then absolutely play the young man!
I just said, "I hope we don't need him"..and I'd be surprised if anybody hoped we did.
He could break his leg in the first series next season and that redshirt would suddenly become important, not for the team, but for Chris.
That's what I think Coach Saban looks at and that's why I think he'll try to sit him if possible.
I just got a chance to see this kid play in HS & I am probably over excited. He is something Great.
I really do get what you are saying & would be with you but the loss of Bell I think changed everything.
We gonna beat GA & CB will be a big part of it, not a decoy.
This game is gonna be exciting!
You are indeed correct. If he plays the results are up to him. That's the reason I don't think Saban would put that much pressure on him unless totally necessary.
That's a ton of pressure on a true freshman who has never suited up and was the basis of my every comment.
I also think Coach Saban expects that he could be a contributor in whatever way he is used.
