If there is a season, even a truncated one, RS's shouldn't be affected

in my opinion (unless for safety/health concerns). If there is a season, with a post season and NCAA tournament (even a truncated season), someone who wasn't going to redshirt under normal conditions, probably wouldn't redshirt under these conditions outside of health concerns.

The goal most seasons is obviously to win and win championships, and if there will be an NCAA championship, I don't think most would consider a redshirt just for a shortened/abnormal season, excluding health concerns.

Now, when I say truncated, I mean, still having a decent number of games.

If we end up talking about like 10 regular season games only before post season, then maybe some would consider redshirting. But if there will be a post season and a championship, I would bet most would play, outside of having health concerns.

Maybe the biggest exception to that would be teams who were planning on playing 1 or 2 players at bottom of roster with respect to developing depth. A shortened season, if significantly shortened, could impact those decisions and teams may say, we don't need to worry about depth as much with a shorter season.
