    Did I hear Stig mention they are pulling Hicks redshirt?

    Or does anyone have any insight into who will maintain redshirt and who will have them pulled?

    Great thread - if you could add their positions to the list, that would be even better.

    I have no insider knowledge on this but it seems pretty obvious that Hicks and Evans will not be redshirting. Seeing them play as many meaningful downs as we have so far this year already.

    I'm going to go out on a limb, and say there's no way Diamond Evans keeps a redshirt. That kid is a baller.

    Might be tough for both Evans and Hicks to hold their RS's. I'm ok with that, they along with many in this class can flat out play. A couple others I think might not keep them would be, Norblade, Darnell, Shafer and Gandy. Any RB injuries happen and Blakely gets his pulled too.

    Stig said at Stater's Luncheon that Shafer will likely have his redshirt pulled since they don't have much depth at the LB position.

    Diamond got called for a defensive holding penalty on one play. I don’t recall exactly when was, but he no doubt is learning. I am sure this play will affect his grade, but Diamond will soon be household word.

    I was a bit surprised to see only 2 true freshmen played the other night. Would have been a great time to get some reps for experience, but I'm guessing they will be a little more judicious so they can preserve redshirt status.

    That, and they can save them for later in the year when depth is a bigger issue. If you have some of your best freshmen with 2 or 3 games left for the rule by mid November, you're setting yourself up well to add depth heading into playoffs if it's needed.
