    <!-- template inline --><!-- insertinlineAd -->ACC officials and coaches were interested in instant replay before the 2004 season. They could have it in 2005.

    <!-- BEGIN INLINE UNIT -->

    <!-- END INLINE UNIT -->The conference will discuss experimenting with replay next season, ACC assistant commissioner Mike Finn told the Raleigh News & Observer.

    If the conference decides to use replay, the NCAA football rules committee, which meets in February, would have to approve the experiment for the upcoming season.

    "We would be interested in trying it, and I think most leagues would be," Finn told the paper.

    The Big Ten used replay for 57 games in 2004, conference spokesman Scott Chipman told the paper. In Big Ten games, the technical adviser stopped play 44 times to review plays, and 21 calls were overturned.

    The technical adviser, who was in the press box, was the only person responsible for reviewing plays.

    "I'm not sure if the ACC would approach it the same way, but I think what they did was fine," Finn told the paper. "It served them well."

    North Carolina athletics director Dick Baddour said that initially, he is not inclined to support using instant replay.

    "You run the risk of it taking over a game," Baddour told the paper. "I just am more inclined to accept a notion that you have officials out there that have got to make judgment calls as part of the game.

    "But I could be convinced that there are situations where it has tremendous advantage in that I realize mistakes can be made and have a significant impact."
  2. I think it is a good idea. It has been a success in the NFL and it was a success in the big ten. Just would like to see the coaches have some say when they would like to challenge a play.

    Correction: it has had SOME success in the NFL and HUGE success in the Big10. Tons of fans come away whining about the instant replay calls every week. Very rarely do honest, knowledgeable fans get mad at the instnat replay of the big10 most weeks. Even us buckeye fans weren't mad at the instant replay but rather the refs who were still getting used to teh system at the Wisconsin game and blew the whistle early. I think most fans would say it worked extremely well in the big10, and is light years ahead of the crap system the nfl uses.
