Rule changes:

1. PI should be a spot foul

2. No stopping the clock to reset the chains on first downs

3. When a defender recovers a fumble or INT, they are not down unless they are touch (NFL rule)


These are all NFL rules but I think they should apply to college also. If you think about it, a good bit of college players will be moving on to the NFL so it would only make sense to play by those rules.

1) on targeting play pick up the flag if the review allows player to stay. How you can keep penalty yardage when you say no penalty makes no sense
2) 11 game schedules. 9 in conference and 2 out of conference. No fbs games if you want to play an exhibition against an in state fbs for monetary or practice reasons fine but it doesn't count for your win total.
3) 12 team play off. 6 automatic (aac, acc, big10, big12, sec, pac12), 4 at large and the final 2 determined by play in by the four champions of the wac, cusa, mw, and sunbelt. Those really weak conferences should not get an automatic bid. The top 2 get a first round bye.

This is because in NFL you have to be touched to be down on offense. In college you are not down when you recover a fumble or get an int.

Also, every year players should be able to enter the NFL draft and if they go undrafted and still have eligibility should have the ability to return to school.

2. Transfers - Players should be able to transfer to any school outside of their current conference and be able to play the next year. If coaches can go wherever they want players should be able to do the same.

3. Year to Year Scholarships - I think these are absurd! The fact that a coach can sign a player to a one year deal, like this is the NFL, and then cut them is ridiculous.
Just curious about 3. So if you get hired for a job, don't do the work, they should have to keep you on and pay you anyway. Now, don't answer with "Not the same thing". It is. Every contract is 2 sided and both parties should have to keep their "bargain". As with all bargains, there will be some that bend the rules. Not happy about that, but there are valid reasons for the one year. we are dealing with not yet adult young men.

#1. Require student athletes to meet the same entrance requirements as the general student population.
#2. Require student athletes to take real classes that offer them a chance to succeed in life without sports.
#3. Do away with having to renew scholarships annually. This would require coaches to do a little better job of evaluating talent.

and a bonus
#4. Limit the number of scholarships offered to 40 and not allow contact with HS players until after their junior year.

It's hard to intelligibly argue your point.
Didn't read the entire thread but this makes sense as a judgment (and possibly reviewable) call. If the defender makes no attempt to play the ball then it's a spot foul but if contact occurs naturally yet excessively in the pursuit of the ball then it should be 15 yards like it is now.

I don't watch NBA now but I'm pretty sure they used to have rules for intentional fouls. Not necessarily flagrant just intentional.... anyways I think the refs being able to make a spot judgment that is reviewable only by coach challenge or within 2 minutes by the booth...

I would agree with the change if only PI determined via replay not idiot officials and more emphasis placed on offensive interference.

Also if it's offensive interference the same penalty.

I'm sick of all the rule changes to the detriment of the defense.

1. Offensive face mask, e.g., stiff arms to the defender's face mask.
2. Targeting 15 yards only and ultimately determined via replay.
3. 5 yard incidental contact to the head, no automatic first down.
4. PI ultimately determined via replay.

No way. That would damage the game. One is it would make the game about 4-5 hours long. The second is the quality of the officiating would go down

1. Targeting. Please fix that whole debacle of a penalty
2. Referees. Too many blown calls, and too many no-calls. Make every NCAA referee take a 'certification' exam at the start of every season. If they horribly miss an obvious penalty, or flag something that didn't happen... suspend them for a game without pay and make them re-test. Get three offenses in a 5 year period, you're fired.
3. Allow an "exhibition" type of Spring Game against an actual opponent. It'd lessen the overall plays for the backups, but it'd likely cut down on possible injuries. It'd make things more interesting for the crowd that shows up, and it'd be nice to actually let your team go against a playbook they don't see on an everyday basis.

How? It seems to me guys are going to be even more competitive if they're going against someone other than their teammates. But I still like the idea of an exhibition game.

I'm thinking it'd be FBS against FCS schools (SC/CCU, Clemson/Furman or Wofford, UGA/Ga Southern, etc) and still have the relaxed rules that most Spring Games do. No KO/Punt returns, no sacks, etc.

As far as lessening injuries, idk, just seems to me it would help. I know a couple of teams had a few big injuries come out of the spring game, not sure if the idea would help with that or not, but it couldn't hurt.
