When redshirting a player, I would like to be able to make him promises regarding the next season; the attractiveness of the promises should factor in to whether he accepts the redshirt without an enormous drop in WE.
For example, on my team I have a guy who will be a sophomore next season. For class-balancing purposes, it would be great if he takes a redshirt next season. From his point of view, he will get to start for three seasons if he does (as opposed to being a minor role player next season before starting in his last two years). So it would be nice to be able to redshirt him this season while promising him a starting spot in the following season, which would take away the sting of redshirting as a sophomore and thus persuade him to accept it without the big WE drop.
This is a pretty minor addition (I know there are more important things to be done in the long term), but it strikes me as spectacularly easy to code.
