Duke HC David Cutcliffe said he and every coach he speaks to were "blindsided" by the NCAA's proposal to prevent offenses from snapping the ball before 29 seconds remaining on the play clock.
The proposed rule change apparently did not come up at the annual national coaches convention. The rule was labeled as a "safety change," but Cutcliffe thinks it is more about a preferred philosophy than safety, saying it favors "a team that plays ahead and likes to runs the ball." Cutcliffe added that he does not think up-tempo offenses cause more injuries. UNC's Larry Fedora was also very outspoken about the potential change. Feb 15 - 11:41 AM
