Fortunately BB is still showing signs of being able to learn and adjust.  Question to be answered by the individual is "does he do it fast enough to keep up with competition from other SEC coaches".

I can site two really good situations in just the last couple years that are big but I'll let ya'll come to your own conclusions.

If a guy has Sunday potential, you do not redshirt him.  The only possible exception being offensive linemen who need more time to develop.  If you redshirt a guy who can play on Sunday, you are running a big risk of only getting two years out of him ala Darius Philon.

Philon was injured his true freshmen year. Him having to redshirt his freshmen year is essentially the reason we were able to have him in the first place as his injury was a key reason in Bama signing somebody else and asking him to greyshirt.

Secondly, speaking of Sunday potential, recall that he wasn't used very much his redshirt freshmen season either until the back half of the year. His main obstacle to playing time was Robert Thomas being ahead of him. The same Robert Thomas who has been in the NFL for one more season than Philon and was the favorite to be one of the starters at DT for the NY Giants.
