Too pooped to stop pop

At least for another season, the republic is saved. (h/t)

The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel has tabled a proposed football rule that would have adjusted the ineligible receiver downfield rule from 3 yards to 1 yard on Thursday.

Panel members, who met on a teleconference Thursday, felt more discussion about the rule should take place within the college football community before a final decision is made.

They go on to note that only 65 of the FBS head coaches participated in the initial survey, so I guess they didn’t buy Troy Calhoun’s puffery.

In any event, officials can go back to ignoring the rule, just like before.  Except in Georgia games, of course.

  1. Remind me. Is Penny Wagers and his Ego gone for 2016?

    And oh yeah, I think that when emeritus officials review the play, like on the infamous punt crap call, that ought to be piped into Steve and Mike’s video command bunker in Birmingham.

      Speaking of waffling, how’s your former gov, Jeb, doing in his run up to the White House? The only part he seems to have covered so far is that he’s white. Not sure whether he has mastered walking and chewing gum at the same time yet. Understand he is in deep poo since CPAC called him a deep thinker.

    Just enforce the damn rule against linemen being three yards downfield SEC. If you will just do that….
