… Gus Malzahn called the new NCAA rule limiting the number of people on headsets during games “a joke” that will have an impact on the quality of the game.
Earlier this month, the NCAA passed legislation that will cap the number of people on headsets to 20, including 15 coaches.
“The 20 headset rule is a joke,” Malzahn said on Wednesday at SEC Spring Meetings. “There’s no doubt about it. I think that’s got the ability to hurt our game. That’s a really big deal.”
Oh, noes! All those years I watched SEC football played without a thousand folks bedecked in shiny headsets, totally oblivious to how shitty the game was. I need to turn in my fan card, I guess.
The issue, Malzahn said, is that there is a disconnect between coaches and decision-makers.
“We’ve got a lot of people that are not football coaches making decisions for football,” he said. “I think if we had more football coaches involved in the decision making it would be better for our game.”
He… he’s playing the “in the arena” card. Hysterical.
Look, this is pretty simple. The
SEC NCAA knows it doesn’t have a legal leg to stand on trying to limit the number of folks a football program can put on the payroll. Making some of those folks useless is the next best thing it can come up with. Deal with it, Gus. That’s why they pay you the big bucks.
I just hope my enjoyment of the game hasn’t been ruined.
