Am I doing something wrong with this 8x10 development?

I know this isn't necessarily alt-process related but I think that I might
need to try an alternative developer if this prooves to be a problem.

I developed two sheets of 8x10 T-Max 100 today (my first EVER large format
shots! Yay!) and there's a slight red tinge to the emulsion. I used
Ilfosol-S for 7.5 minutes. I've had a lot of experience with Tri-X 400 and
Acros 100 using this developer for 120/220 but I've never seen this effect
on the emulsion before. Note that I have never shot T-Max 100, developed
it, or printed from it before.

Is this damaging? Does anyone have a better reccomended developer for this
film? I'll probably switch to my Tri-X standby once I exhaust my stash of
T-Max but why waste the film? Does the red tint have any contrast effect on
the prints? I wonder if this would be preferable for Pl/Pd?
