    NCAA Redshirt Rules amended to allow players 4 games a season.

    This is HUGE. I'd honestly say NDSU just got that much stronger, considering we attempt to redshirt each and every class the comes in.

    Now we can still Redshirt classes and still get them some in game reps.

    Yes this is huge for all programs. It can help with depth and injuries by allowing your true freshman to still get game experience without burning a redshirt year.
    You can not play your starters as deep in blowout games, although mike Houstonís greatest weakness is playing starters too deep into some games.

    Not sure about that. It is a good question.

    I would guess there isn't either but it should make for some interesting decisions by coaching staffs. Do they use up their true frosh's "redshirt games" in the non-conference when games are the least meaningful or do they perhaps hold out and use them in the playoffs when games are the most meaningful? Regardless, I think it's a great change.

    I love this change. This is really going to help us out since we don't have great depth in some places and can play some freshman and still keep them redshirted.

    This should help everyone with depth issues.

    I kinda disagree. This helps teams that weren't in the position to red shirt players more. Now many of their players will have an extra year, vs more practice time for yours.

    To quote a comment I saw somewhere else.

    "Great now Alabama's 5* underclassmen get even more GAME TIME experience."

    Same thing applies here.

    IMO .. this makes a lot more sense for FCS than FBS due to schollies available .. FCS rosters get more depleted tan FBS dealing with same redshirt rules that have to spread all available scholarships over 5 year period. So I think from a budgetary standpoint, I like the idea for FCS. But seems like a stupid idea for FBS ... 4 games is 1/3rd of the FBS season .. a bit much when you have 85 scholarship players to choose from 60 of which are not true freshman. But under no circumstances should FCS or FBS be able to use a redshirt for playoffs. You ought to have to set and declare your roster before playoffs. Football is war of attrition and that is part of the coaching challenge .. have your guys ready for all games, including playoff.
