College football coaches around the nation have spent their careers overworking older players in the face of adversity in order to keep redshirt freshmen, well, redshirted. But if the NCAA is willing to listen to coaches' demands, major changes could be coming to the way these players' cases are handled.
"This needs to pass." College Football coaches unanimously support plan to allow redshirts if a player participates in four or less games, regardless of when those games occur. This will allow injury-depleted position groups to avoid overusing players.https://t.co/qLMNCIsO27— Adam Rittenberg (@ESPNRittenberg) January 10, 2018
