I think it's a great idea. The youngsters can get a little game experience, and not waste a redshirt. It's also great "injury insurance" in case you lose a starter quite late in the season.

I think the strategy behind when to play the redshirt guys in their 4 games will be very interesting. I can see a lot of them getting upset if they don't get to play in a few games, so the coaches may make the decision to play them in a few early season blowouts. That then makes them less useful for injury insurance though.

The lower bowl games may turn into a glorified spring game too with coaches playing all of their redshirts to see what they have available for next year. Coaches on the hot seat though may not because they need to win to secure their job.

I should have clarified. It is not surprising to me because why won't the coaches love the idea, as Dabo told TCI the other day when we asked him about it.

Very good points. I did not think about that last part.
