    Players can play up to 4 football games a year and still redshirt per new NCAA rule



    No longer will you be unable to see a player on your favorite college football team play in a game because hes redshirting. The NCAA announced Wednesday that players will be allowed to play in up to four games a season while still retaining their redshirt status.

    This is such a good rule IMO. No idea what happens and there could be some issues that I'm not thinking of but I like it.

    Biggest winners IMO are the players and Bowl games.

    This is huge - wait until the last few games and them plug in true freshmen who can make an impact and provide depth going into the playoff.

    I like this idea. But do you want untested guys in games of that magnitude?

    IMO, someone like Saban can make that judgement call pretty easily. In your case it would be 4 tough games - Auburn, SECCG then 2 CFP games.

    Hey, it could happen haha.

    Overall, I see one good rule and one bad one. I think this is a good rule. I remember teams being put in positions like, do we play our hurt QB or take the redshirt off the other QB? Even Alabama was put in that position when GMac was hurt.
    Apologies if I said anything that could be construed as a personal insult.

    9-8 Arkansas St 9-29 Louisiana Lafayette We should be able to get several freshmen some playing time in these two cupcake games. If we have a rash of injuries like last year at least we would have some plugins with some game experience. I like this rule and have wanted it for a long, long time.

    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    Ah, this is what the Arkansas State game should be used for. With at least one game day experience under their belt they would not be untested at the home stretch -- just little tested.

    Right, I think you get the guys you have a lot of faith in some early playing time, and then as the season progresses you can review your options.

    This is really huge for Alabama with their depth though. They can now strategically deploy true freshman, rather than just either work to preserve their redshirt or play them if someone gets hurt. They can now promise to play pretty much any incoming true freshman.
