I think Paul’s spot on with what that indicates. Richt thinks he’s very, very close to having THE team to do something special this season, and if that’s the case, you can’t worry about redshirting if you think a kid can help you on a given Saturday.
And that’s pretty damned exciting if you ask me.
While I’m in the amen chorus with Mr. Westerdawg, let me also say that he’s got the correct take on letting Moreno return punts. You play your best, period. Sure, there’s a risk, but that’s the case for every player that steps on a field – just ask Stewart Mandel. It always irritated me when Georgia stopped letting Fred Gibson return kickoffs. I know he was on the fragile side, but he was clearly better at the job than anyone else on the roster.
Do what you have to do.
