    Proposed NCAA Football Rule Changes

    College football could be taking a few pages right out of the NFL's rule book.
    On Thursday, an NCAA committee proposed adopting a 10-second runoff for clock-stopping penalties in the final minute of each half, changing the intentional grounding rule and experimenting with placing umpires behind the running backs.
    A vote on the proposals is expected April 14.
    It should sound familiar. Last year, the NFL moved umpires from their traditional position in the middle of the defense to the offensive backfield for safety reasons. The NCAA is now asking schools to experiment with moving the umpire during spring practice and spring games to assess whether it gives them better angles to make calls.
    "The officiating community wants the guidance of the rules committee on what their thinking is on this," college football's officiating coordinator, Rogers Redding, said in a statement. "We'll see if this is something that should be done at some point."
    Safety is part of the reason for other changes, though.
    Players lined up within seven yards of the center on scrimmage plays are still permitted to block below the waist anywhere on the field, but the committee is recommending tighter restrictions on other players.
    Receivers or running backs lined up outside the tackle box will be allowed to block below the waist only if they are blocking straight ahead or toward the nearest sideline. If they go inside and block toward the play, it would be a penalty.

    Was just about to post this as well...New Rules May Give College Football An NFL Look - Sports News Story - KCCI Des Moines

    I just know that we're going to get penalized on that no-celebration penalty. Yet there will be big name players/programs that will constantly get away with the celebrations. I'm okay with the rule, as long as they have it defined very objectively and called consistently.

    Receivers blocking below the waist was not a problem for last year's squad.

    Re: Proposed NCAA Football Rule Changes

    Weren't we called for too many holding penalties last year as is? I shudder at the thought of even more being called.

    They could give the NCAA an NFL look by abandoning the college overtime format.

    Sudden-death isn't flawless, but it beats that.

    Other note: Excessive-celebration penalties are stupid. Unsportsmanlike conduct exists for a reason.

    I disagree with you completely on OT. College OT is better than NFL.

    Agree on excessive celebration. If its not delaying the game, who cares, its a game, let em have fun.

    You all watch. When this no celebration penalty gets put in place there will be several bull **** calls that will influence the outcome of games. As if the KSU game wasnt proof enough. NCAA=The most idiotic sports governing body.

    Re: Proposed NCAA Football Rule Changes

    Excessive celebration penalty is a joke. You penalize a guy for celebrating a touchdown, but players make a great tackle or a big stop, and players will chest bump, jump up and down, whatever else, and they are not penalized. The rule is a joke.

    High school and college overtime is about 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 times better than the sudden death that the NFL uses.

    Couldn't disagree with you more. Sudden death OT in the NFL is beyond ridiculous, and there could be a potential all-out revolt if the NCAA were to implement it.

    And I agree with a previous post, the blocking below the waist thing won't be much of an issue for our team. They don't do a whole lot of blocking outside of the tackle box anyway.

    I'm not sure, but aren't current unsportsmanlike conduct penalties during touchdowns due to celebration while you're holding onto the ball? Or if you're dancing around? I think you'd get a similar penalty if you were dancing around after a big stop as well.

    I do agree that the penalties aren't uniformly enforced, and you see guys get called out on questionable celebration penalties.

    As for these changes, I don't see what's wrong with the rule itself. If you start celebrating your TD before you're even in the endzone, high-stepping it in, or taunting your opponents, then the appropriate penalty would be to take away the score. However, I do wonder if it'll be stupidly enforced.

    Absolutely not. The NFL system is flawed and favors the luck of the draw on the coin toss. All you have to do then is drive down to like the 40 yard line and kick a long field goal and you win. Why do you think they changed the rules for the playoffs, allowing the opposing team a possession if the team that wins the coin toss just kicks a field goal?

    The only change I'd implement in the NCAA system is perhaps to push them back a bit, so you don't just have to run the ball up the middle a couple times and kick a field goal.

    Re: Proposed NCAA Football Rule Changes

    I'll join the unpopular position that I don't like the college OT. I don't know that they should go to an NFL model, but the college model is just an expanded high school format. It's like finishing a hockey or soccer game with a shootout. Special teams and field position are a part of football.

    I guess i dont see a majority of those things as penalty-worthy anyways, and to enforce them in a way that is highly likely to have an effect on the game, moreso than other penalties since its likely to happen more on a touchdown play, gives the penalty excessive effect for something that is questionable as to whether it should be a penalty anyways.
