The Southeastern Conference will implement a collaborative process for instant replay in the sport of football beginning with the 2016 season, following a unanimous vote of the league’s athletics directors and approval by the SEC Executive Committee.
In February, the NCAA Football Rules Committee approved a request submitted by the SEC to allow conferences to use a collaborative process for instant replay on an experimental basis. Under this experiment, personnel operating from SEC Headquarters will assist the in-stadium Instant Replay Officials when replay decisions are made.
So now we’ll have the on-field officials being reviewed by an in-stadium replay official, who will be “assisted” by the main office. Got it.
I don’t know if this will be an improvement, but I’ll bet CBS and ESPN will be happy about the additional dead time.
