This clears up a lot of the speculation that has been going on. Thanks.

Rich Rodriguez has said that Boubacar Cissoko is expected to return to the field this year once he clears up the issues that got him suspended. That means he won't be redshirting. Only freshmen will redshirt this year, then, and the list of eligible guys is as follows:
- Isaiah Bell
- Jeremy Gallon
- Brendan Gibbons
- Cameron Gordon
- Thomas Gordon
- Mike Jones (Injury redshirt only, as he's played in a couple games - but not the DSU blowout).
- Anthony LaLota
- Taylor Lewan
- Michael Schofield
- Fitzgerald Toussaint
- Justin Turner
- Quinton Washington
A couple of these guys might be in the mix for playing time later in the year (especially Jones, since he's already played), so keep your eyes peeled.
Hopefully the team stays healthy enough that the guys who are currently on track for a redshirt don't have to burn it near the end of the season. Good comprehensive list!
The mgoblue site lists Demens as a RS FR.
The fact that Webb, Sagesse, Rogers, and Woolfolk did not redshirt was one of my biggest pet peeves of Carr's later years.
Carlos Brown really didn't need to see the field in 2006, either.
any way that this can get moved to the MGoBoard and made sticky??? reason being is that someone is going to ask in a couple of weeks what the redshirt situation is and it will easier to direct them to this post instead of explaining it to them.
You could make this the front page, rename the blog "The Redshirts of 2009 for Michigan are as follows...(all their names)," email the list to every known poster here, send RSS feeds to everyone who even clicks on this blog, cut off the hands and feet of everyone who posts threads titled,"Who's Gonna Redshirt?"
and you would still have 6.4 threads per week titled, "Who's Gonna Redshirt?"
but why does KOB get negged for just about everything he posts (and, yes, I am aware that he formerly posted as the Barking Sphincter)?
This seemed like a completely innocuous "jokey" post, so why the hate? Are people just negging certain posters they don't like regardless of post content?
That just seems so, I don't know, middle-schooley.
(Ducks for cover...)
There are sev. things that should be put semi-permanently under "Useful Stuff." This is one of them. One other suggestion: obviously, this will need to be edited maybe twice, three times at the most. Say at the beginning of Nov. and end of season.
Demens got a medical redshirt for last year. He had a shoulder injury of some sort, I believe.
Are you sure he didn't play against DSU?
He's listed in the special teams section of the player participation report
...the entire DSU game and remember seeing him on the field during special teams. IIRC he is #27 and was involved in at least one or two tackles.
Thanks Tim, great post. Hopefully this eliminates the weekly MGoBoard post on Justin Turner et al.
I'm a little surprised at some of the non-redshirting freshman. Obviously, RR must have his reasons and I'm not trying to second guess him, but I'm just curious what those reasons are. Players like Big Will, Hawthorne, Teric Jones, and Stokes have contributed very little, and surely their contributions could have been made by players who were not redshirt eligible. I would just like to know why those players needed to play this year.
Speculation on my part, but I'll bite. Sometimes you've got a player that the coaches believe can contribute and make some good plays in limited action. Perhaps these guys still need work on technique/fundamentals. Being able to go up against other competition and then reviewing film of what was good/bad, can be more beneficial than just redshirting. There's no replacement for game time experience, and perhaps a few of these guys will be big contributors in 2010. Just my $0.02.
I enjoy seeing alot of OL players on this list. This means that at least one of our position groups other than RB has some decent depth...
Thanks for clearing that up for us Tim.
is that if a skill position guy doesn't see the field his freshman year (ie.db, running back, wr) he probably isn't ever going to be anything special (YES...there are exceptions, but mostly it is the case). Which is why the empire is REALLY concerned about Turner. Ty Law played ALOT as a frosh, Woodson played ALOT as a frosh, Jackson ALOT as a frosh, Warren A LOT as a frosh. So, I think you get my drift...the odds are greater that Turner will be anyting special.
This is a strange case. Because of some weird problem with a meaningless standardized test that's supposed to test Turner's teachers more than Turner, his arrival was delayed until the end of summer.
Given his performance in the Army game and his recruiting cachet, I'm not ready to come near to writing him off yet. All of the guys you mentioned above were there for summer practice their respective freshman years.
Following your logic, shouldn't your conclusion be that Turner *won't* be anything special?
Justin Turner might just be starting if not for the Ohio testing snafu.
I'm pretty sure that if a player is on the field for a single play in any game for the entire year they burn their redshirt. Unlike in basketball where there is a limit to the games one can play in, I believe it is one and done with football.
In any sport, a player who sees the field/court/ice for one play burns the redshirt. The game limit (30% of the season) has to do with medical redshirt applicants.
I'm not 100% sure, but I thought I read on a thread here way back at the beginning of the year that Gallon played on special teams a couple times. I could definitely be wrong but I thought I read that on this blog somewhere.
