Hey, the coaches want this newfangled technological shit and it’s another revenue source for college football, so I’d say we’re looking at a question of when, not if, it’s all embraced on a sideline near you.
“I think the coaches clearly want to investigate using technology to make the game better and I think that a competition committee can look at some of these,” SEC coordinator of officials Steve Shaw said. “Clearly we’re marching toward technology.”

On Wednesday, bureau spokesman Tom Hogue told The Associated Press the issues were resolved and that four varieties of Palcohol were approved.
That’s approval on the federal level only, mind you. States are still free to ban the product, if they so choose. And some already have. What are they worried about? Among other things,
Concerns have included abuse by minors… and whether Palcohol’s light weight would make it easy to sneak alcohol into public events…
I think that’s a big “yes”, there.
