NCAA - slowly ruining football (rules changes - merged)

    NCAA tables proposal that would allow players to play in up to four games and retain redshirt

    The NCAA’s Division I Council on Wednesday tabled a proposal that would allow players to compete in up to four games and retain their redshirts. Championed by AFCA executive director Todd Berry, the rule was touted as a necessary change in an era where teams play 14- and 15-game seasons.

    The rule would allow redshirting players to replace injured players without personal cost to their careers. Presently, a coach with dwindling numbers at a given position is put in between the rock and the hard place of burning an innocent player’s redshirt or putting players at risk of injury through overuse.

    Here’s how the NCAA presented the news:

    The Council tabled a proposal that would allow football student-athletes to participate in up to four games per year without using a season of competition. Proponents argue that late-season injuries and other factors often require student-athletes who hadn’t played all season to burn a year of eligibility for a small number of games. Others wonder whether the proposal could be applied to other sports, as well, whether the number of games in the proposal is appropriate, and whether the timing of the four games matters.

    It is not clear what opposition exists to the rule, though Big 12 commissioner, Council member and noted fear-mongerer Bob Bowlsby posited in January that teams could, for some unexplained reason, hold their best players back until the final four games of the season.

    “I think it’s got a lot of merit,” he said, “but there are some hooks in it. I don’t know how comfortable people are with, suddenly in the last three games and a bowl game, you go from being a guy who’s on the scout team to [a prominent role].”

    If we had a 32 team playoff.... I could see sandbagging... But who is going to hold back a player talented enough to make that type of difference and risk not winning games the first 75 percent of the season.

    I'm sure there is a "dumb shit" coach out there somewhere that might try it:

    NCAA RULE CHANGE WILL ALLOW COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYERS TO PLAY UP TO FOUR GAMES AND STILL REDSHIRT

    College football players will now be able to play up to four games and still redshirt beginning this season, the NCAA announced in a release on Wednesday.

    "This change promotes not only fairness for college athletes, but also their health and well-being. Redshirt football student-athletes are more likely to remain engaged with the team, and starters will be less likely to feel pressure to play through injuries,” Miami athletic director Blake James, the chairman of the NCAA's Division I council, said in a statement. “Coaches will appreciate the additional flexibility and ability to give younger players an opportunity to participate in limited competition."

    The redshirt rule change wasn't the only rule change announced by the NCAA on Wednesday. The governing body also announced a rule change that will allow student-athletes across all sports to transfer to a different school and receive a scholarship without asking their current schools for permission, beginning Oct. 15.

    Previously, schools could choose not to release a student-athlete from his or her scholarship, or place restrictions on which schools that student-athlete could transfer to. That often resulted in coaches, especially in football, blocking student-athletes from transferring to schools that were within their conference, on their schedules for upcoming seasons and/or schools that previously recruited them. One such example occurred last year when Auburn blocked Antwuan Jackson from transferring directly to Ohio State, forcing him to spend a semester at Blinn College before enrolling at Ohio State this January.

    Big College Football Rule Changes For 2018

    [​IMG]

    The NCAA is implementing some major rule changes before the 2018 college football season in an effort to both speed up the game and make it safer.

    The change that has gotten the most publicity is on kickoffs. The receiving team can now fair catch a kick anywhere on the field and get the ball at its own 25.

    Bill Carollo, the coordinator of football officials for the Big Ten explained the change, which seemed targeted at Urban Meyer’s strategy of pinning the returner deep and against the sideline.

    “Those pooch kicks that are in the side zones that we’re trying to eliminate in the game because it has proven out to our testing and reviewing that some major injuries have happened on kickoffs,” Carollo said.

    That’s not the only change you’ll see in the kicking game this fall. There shouldn’t be as much dead time between touchdowns and PATs, and after kickoffs.

    “What we’re looking at is trying to take out some of the dead time between plays, not to eliminate plays, but to kill some of the time in between to keep the pace of play going,” said Carollo. “So the ball, after a touchdown or after a kickoff, the play clock will be set at 40 and it will be wound. We’ll get the thing going.”

    Get ready to see more penalties for illegal blocks below the waist. That’s a rule that gets tweaked almost every year. This season, the change makes it illegal for offensive players to throw low blocks down the field.

    “If a player on offense is downfield at five yards or more, it is illegal to block low. So low blocks down field now are just like punts, kickoffs change of possessions; they cannot block low five yards beyond the line of scrimmage,” said Carollo.

    Finally, there’s a change that’s part football officiating and part Fashion Police.

    Yeah... teams milling around, wasting time before the ensuing kick is the problem.. not the TV timeout for a few minutes worth of advertising. Nice work, NCAA... biting the hand the feeds you. :golf clap:

    Some long TDs are going to be called back because somebody "blocked" by diving on the ground and forcing the defender to jump over him.

    If they want to speed up the game they can get rid of "flopping." Can't help but notice how often Hairball has a kid do the Neymar to keep the Buckeyes from coming up to the line and snapping the ball.
