According to twitter and the rest of the internet, everything is Saban's fault...
The NCAA Football Rules Committee has recommended a rules change barring offenses from snapping the ball until the play clock reaches 29 seconds or less in order to give defenses time to substitute within the first 10 seconds of the 40-second play clock. The only exception: the final two minutes of each half.
The NCAA Football Rules Committee may make changes that will slow down HUNH offenses. I predict it will take Barners 5 mins to blame Saban— Auburn Jokes™ (@AuburnJokes) February 12, 2014
Worse. Means Gary Danielson wins MT @ATVS_PaulCrewe I'm against any amendments that prohibit HUNH offense because that means Saban wins.— Billy Gomila (@ATVS_ChefBilly) February 12, 2014
The NCAA can bite Auburn and all the other HUNH offenses. Anti-HUNH are scared that it negates a defensive edge. Know what it does....— Joe Culpepper (@Jcdio) February 13, 2014
Fitting that the two teams that whooped his defense's ass run the HUNH. (Auburn and Oklahoma)— Tanner Carson (@SpencerT_) February 12, 2014
I presume Nick Saban will be giving back his tainted championships from "the Speed Demon Era."— sir broosk (@celebrityhottub) February 12, 2014
@OleMissEvie Saban can't beat dual threat qbs. So NCAA rule. No more dual threat QBs. Throw or don't go!!!— Desmen Ison (@jdison92) February 13, 2014
Nick Saban wants the rules changed, cause he has zero idea about how to stop up tempo offenses! http://t.co/tUCVIL3Qqz— Sean Bradley (@BoomerUofK) February 13, 2014
eagerly anticipating Nick Saban's request that field goal returns be taken away.— Christopher Smith (@cbsmith_11) February 13, 2014
Nick Saban is a joke. Can't keep up with hurry up no huddle offenses? Get the NCAA to change the rules. This dude...smh— Lewis (@LL_Sinatra) February 13, 2014
NCAA might as well institute a Saban rule: anything that bama can't defend against is banned. No HUNH and no missed field goal returns.— Gris (@ATACMS6) February 13, 2014
the updykes have destroyed college football.
Ignore and break rules in recruiting and change on the field rules to fit your teams strengths.
hey ncaa why not investigate the uat cult? That would clean up most of the problems in the game.
saban's middle name should be HYPOCRITE
whinny little man ran the HUNH in both halves of the Iron Bowl but now wants to outlaw it? The bottmo line is wee man doesn't have a clear advantage any longer and wants the rules changed to aid him and get the odds heavy titled back in his favor-----HYPOCRITE baby!
If this doesn't convince folks that sabbun is ballz deep in emmert, then nothing will.
If this rule passes, it essentially eliminates any form of hurry up offense. That would include a team trying to run a 2 minute drill. That would be like telling Matt Ryan, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady they cannot tell people to get up to the line even in the middle of the game like they so often do.
You want to be able to substitute, watch game film on Auburn's defense substituting.
Saban as a recruiter (rule breaker) and game planner is a master. It is in a tight game, against any offense, that Saban is at best an average coach. He simply does not adjust well within the flow of the game. He and Fat Hog are pushing this because as in game coaches they just don't match up.
TV ratings are bigger than ncaa. If this passes, we can kiss the NCAA goodbye
it also shows how weak and pathedic saban is. what a wuss , a coward and a only can win with total advantage. COWARD. ncaa is a weak noodle with emmert hold hands with saban.
I would hope that if this rule was passed, there would be some sort of lawsuit from all teams that run a form of the HUNH to demand proof that defensive safety is compromised. Do a study. I can assure you that to show statistical significance, you would need almost 10,000 games to give it enough power.
Siap, but the comments on the bspn story are like al.com bizzaro world. Satan is getting trashed on there. Maybe this will backfire and everyone outside east Mississippi will hate him just a little more. What a chickenshit ***** he is.
are you nuts? The cult follows their god. He can do no wrong. If he said that bammer would only play one game a season they would be fine with it.
One year and Gus is already the best.....
I am convinced that Malzahn is the absolute best in the business at both utilizing the skills of the players he has on his roster AND using the rules of the game to his advantage.
I don't think it matters what the rules are. Malzahn will find a way to use them to his advantage.
