players should no longer be allowed to tackle.  Tag football is the only direction of progress I see for the game.

That's part of the rule. It wouldn't be a penalty in the last 2 minutes of either half.

Yall are definitely cheering for this to go through. Doubt it does though.

Guess we'll keep having to run 100 bubble screens a game**

Let's look at only our conference only for a moment:

The leader in average number of offensive plays per game last year was Ole Miss. They averaged 78 plays a game.
Two teams tied for the least average offensive plays a game. Ark. and Kent. which both averaged 65 plays.

The difference being 13 plays a game. 13 additional plays have something to do with player safety?

I think defensive minded head coaches don't like having the ability to counter act what the offense is doing and nothing more.

This is the whole point. Chip Kelly broke it down this way because it allowed his offense on the field more and more plays meant more chances to score. What's wrong with that?

The 10 second rule doesn't apply for the last two minutes of the 2nd and 4th quarter

Number 2 would kill the 2 minute drill... wait 10 seconds after every play... better throw it to the end zone every time that's your only shot.

1) duh
2) no need for a rule change. Two things would fix this. First, do something about the head bobbing. Second, refs do not allow play to begin until they are in position. Refs move in same pace no matter the "style" of offense being run. Obviously move quicker in last two min of half.

I'd like to see earbugs for both defense and offense

It has been confirmed that Bielema who is a non-voting member of the rules committee and Saban was an attendee for the 90-minute "rules discussion" portion of the meeting.

The current FBS members on the rules committee are:

Alfred White: Associate Commissioner of Conference USA
Todd Berry: ULM head coach
Troy Calhoun: USAF Academy head coach

13 plays/game x 13 games= 169 plays - the equivalent of 2.5 additional games.

defensive coaches don't like having the ability to counteract what the offense is doing?  ;)

But you are correct--defensive coaches don't like being denied the ability to counter the offense by this prairie dog nonsense.  And that's a legitimate complaint.

I say let them hurry up to the line. Then if they don't snap the ball by the time the playclock gets to 25-30 they get a delay of game.

Maybe I missed something while discussing something like our match-up recently. When Auburn goes to a hurry-up offense we run out the same formation and run one of the 3-4 plays we run out of this alignment.

So, the offense is for the most part the same players facing the same defensive players that were on the field the play before. So, how does giving the defense more time to call a play help. As far as the DC knows the next play looks and could be the exact same play again.

It is already a rule for the ref to stand over the ball if the offense substitutes and allow the defense to do the same.


That excuse does not fly nor does the player safety reasoning.

There's no chance of this passing so it doesn't matter anyway.

The way the hurry up is ran is not a hurry up at all the way the majority of teams run it. So what if Saban and Bielema have a problem with it.
