    Rule Change to Slow down Tempo

    Did an search and couldn't find anything about this, but looks like they are proposing a rule to slow down Offensive Tempo in CFB. The rule would make it so you couldn't snap the ball until 29 seconds in to the 40 second play clock. How BS is that? I hope to go this doesn't pass. I find it funny that Beliema is supporting this. Can't keep up with the Joneses in SEC so he has to change the rules. Adapt or die my friend, adapt or die.

    Nick Saban, Bret Bielema backed committee's proposal of slow-down rule - ESPN


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    Agree-terrible rule. Blue bloods couldn't handle creative coaches trying to do whatever they could to even the playing field, so take away one of the methods. My opinion is that the up-tempo offenses are one of the best things that has happened to college football. And where was the concern? It never came up that I knew of.

    Why don't they look at oversigning instead?

    Re: Rule Change to Slow down Tempo

    Extremely stupid rule proposal. The teams with the lesser "so-called" talent are finally starting to compete and beat the blue bloods due to them being better conditioned than those 5 star athletes, and they want to change. What injuries are they talking about, the one's that LSU and Bama fake to slow down the game?

    Leave it to Saban after getting his a** handed to them by OU to ***** and whine about the speed of the game. If ya can't beat 'em, we'll just the rules. F'n stupid. I didn't like Bama much before, but I F'n hate them now.

    I could try to throw all my thoughts on this together but it would be a waste of time. Mike Leach does a much better job. He just destroys the proponents of this rule.

    Re: Rule Change to Slow down Tempo

    Be cool if hockey and basketball would institute similar rules. On change of posession, the offense has to wait for the defense to get back and set before they can cross the midpoint line.

    The TV Brass have to be thrilled about this move.

    Yep basically, this protects the blue bloods. Rising programs like Okie State, Baylor, and Oregon would be crushed by this rule.

    So who here thinks this proposal will pass. I do (sadly).

    I hope not. Innovation is the name of the game. Imagine, when teams started to go vertical, if they changed the rules so that you cannot throw the ball more than 5 yards down the field?

    I like allowing the defense to sub. I think that it's time defenses get a rule in their favor and not always the offense.

    Re: Rule Change to Slow down Tempo

    Good news for ISU. Now we do not need to ask guys like Klein and Knott, when we get them, to play 90 snaps a game.
    When has our offense ever been fast enough to prevent OU and UT from using their depth? I'll give up those few times in order to essentially reduce the number of games our 1st team guys have to make it through.

    As Leach said, this rule is nothing more than "pure manipulation for self interest". It has nothing to do with safety. Nothing much more to say about it.

    Unless you're a blue blood with all that money at stake. Then the name of the game is protecting your market share.

    Re: Rule Change to Slow down Tempo

    How much would this rule really impact the game? Most of the time teams like Oregon and Baylor aren't snapping the ball in 10 seconds anyway. There are a few times a game they do but not often.

    Besides if this doesn't pass teams will just continue to fake injuries in these situations and that is worse than this rule IMO.
