This is something I've been wondering since the bowl ban was put down on the team. Is there going to be a difference in how Meyer coaches with there being no chance of a Big X or a BCS game?
I was first thinking of this in regards to potentially redshirting some of the older guys if there is mutual interest. You can redshirt any year, so if there is mutual agreement can Simon walk into Meyer's office and say he wants a chance to play for it all in 2013 and redshirt in 2012?
Also, towards the end of the year, will we see more young guys in starting positions than you normally would?
I know Meyer told the freshman that there wouldn't be redshirting at OSU, but that's a sales pitch often and maybe a guy WANTS to play 4 years as a starter and wants to redshirt this year. In other years that may not be an option but Meyer has more leeway now I'd say?
Just a little different thread for people to discuss
