      So....when do we start him? If we lose w/ Frask vs Kintouchy and Tnerc I expect EJ will roll out sooner. BUT...if we're 6-2 after UGA I'd really like him to see significant time at home vs Mizzou, USCe, and Idaho. Decide FSU starter after those three games.

      Thoughts?

        @PeterBurnsESPN: The BIGGEST winner outside of the players and coaches on this new NCAA 4 Game Redshirt rule?

        Non Playoff Bowl Games:

        A chance for younger guys to play with no bearing on how many years of eligibility they have left.

            Game changer. They've gone from "play one play, you lose a year," to "play 1/3 of the season, take another year." I'm betting it's at least a partial solution to upperclassmen skipping bowls to stay healthy for the draft, and it lessens the impact of kids filling in for late-season injuries.

              I like it. I thought this was the way it used to bein the early to mid 80s and that somewhere along the way it got scrapped. Does that ring a bell with anybody else?

              I hope one of our QB's that have been here will perform so well that he can get a full redshirt year without the pressure of being a starter. I hope we are good enough to give him some significant experience for next year and beyond.

                I don't think there is any chance that EJ will Redshirt. There's no one else on the roster even slightly capable of running the offense.

                    Interesting opinion, I have seen nothing to indicate that. Now if coach is lying about customizing his offense to the talent he might be the best option.

                    100% conjecture at the moment. I'm hopeful. If anything perhaps he will be like Tebow in 2006.

                      The idea of EJ playing sooner rather that later is exciting. We haven't been exciting. Pretty much sums it up.

                      I gave you a like because I agree with this post but I am really saddened that it has to be this way. How did Franks ever earn 4 stars? Maybe he proves us wrong this year?...….No, I doubt it.

                        Every coach lies about customizing their offense. Remember when we were going to customize our offense for Leak and Brantley and just ran the option instead?

                                We'll play at least two, maybe three QBs in the first game. Start EJ in week two for two starts at home before the two road games. If Frank's gets his feelings hurt, so be it. Frank's has zilch between the ears, needs to finish his career at a Louisiana or Mississippi directional school.
