UH using new redshirt rule to give more players 'real experience'

As far as UH is concerned, the new rule can be considered a success. Even if a player eventually redshirts, he takes away experience that otherwise would not have been available in the past.

“In terms of burning their redshirt we’ve looked at all of them in terms how much we want to play those guys,” Applewhite said. “There are still some guys that we are looking at in terms of ‘all right, we’ve seen enough from them — we don’t need to play them anymore. There are some guys that have only played in one, maybe two games, and we have one or two more games that we can possibly play them and let’s be conservative in this game or who we travel.”
