On Wednesday, the NCAA Football Rules Committee removed the controversial “10-second rule” from voting consideration. The committee decided this a day before the rule was set to be voted on by a NCAA rules panel.
The proposed rule would have made it illegal for offenses to snap the ball before a minimum of 10 seconds have gone off the 40 second play clock. An offense would incur a 5-yard delay of game penalty for violating the rule. Anyone who follows Oregon football knows that if the 10-second rule had been passed, it would have a major negative impact on the Ducks signature high speed attack. The quick-snapping offensive trend made famous by Chip Kelly and the Ducks has spread to other schools and now the NCAA is wondering if it is safe.no comments no comments
