    Weird new CFB rules

    College football teams able to run time off clock - ESPN

    Among other changes, teams can choose to take 10 seconds off the clock (in addition to yardage penalties) when the opposing team commits a penalty in the last minute of a half, and taunting penalties that occur before a touchdown is scored will be penalized from the spot of the misconduct on the field and nullify the touchdown. Crazy!

    Re: Weird new CFB rules

    No problem except for the taunting rule change - considering what the NCAA in general and individual refs in particular considering taunting I consider a joke (I believe AA got flagged for "taunting" either last year or the year before because he had the "gall" to point his finger in the sky after scoring a TD), this makes a bad rule even worse.

    Totally agree with you on this one. How many times have you watched a college football game and watched a kid from one team taunt the opposing team on a scoring play and get flagged only to then watch a kid on the other team do the same damn thing with no flag.

    Putting a rule in place where you are now taking points off of scoreboard is risky. They better have it worded with every specific thing that they are watching for and they better not leave it up to interpretation. If they do it you flag it no matter what. Consistency is the key and consistency in officiating is not the norm.

    IMO... that rule is going to be an absolute....

    I tried to rep you for the effort but apparently I have repped too many people in the past 24 hours. How do it know?

    Re: Weird new CFB rules

    The rule states "nullify touchdowns if a player is called for taunting before he crosses the goal line". So examples like AA's lost year won't get called back. I am not sure how often we will see this happen, I think the 10s run off will affect the games more.

    I think the end of the UNC vs. Tennessee bowl game last year sparked that 10 second run off rule. That was a crock of ****.

    Re: Weird new CFB rules

    So what if a ref calls taunting in the end zone after a score? Is the td nullified and the ball brought back out to the 15? And is making a heisman pose as Troy Davis did once in the end zone a taunting penalty? This could be a mess and another way for an official's bad judgment to determine an outcome.

    Spot foul. If before the score, negates the score and penalty is assessed from spot of foul. If after the score it is dead ball and is assessed on the next play. In that case the score stands.

    Re: Weird new CFB rules

    It looks like the td is taken away only if the taunting is done before the player enters the end zone. But then how is that any worse than taunting after the td is scored?

    "nullify touchdowns if a player is called for taunting before he crosses the goal line" seems to be pretty clearly defined...

    It seems to me that this rule is making things more consistent. If a taunting penalty occurs by an offensive player during a live ball, it should nullify the offensive play, just like other offensive penalties do. Prior to this rule change, the taunting penalty was always assessed on the next play. This rule change doesn't seem like that big of a deal...

    Re: Weird new CFB rules

    This one seems weird to me:

    "The defensive team also will be assessed a 5-yard penalty if three or more players try to overpower one offensive lineman on place kicks."

    Sounds like it could probably called on half the place kicks.
