I know I read about 3 weeks ago that the NCAA committee was going to address the flopping or faking injuries to slow down fast tempo offenses. What was decided and what’s the process from here?

If it’s like everything else with the NCAA the addressing it will be a “flop”.
I am afraid we might lose out on this argument. The NCAA and rules commit are more concerned about how many plays the players are playing. They want to reduce the amount of plays and the offenses like ours are creating more plays-the fake injuries can be curbed, but it does not sound like their focus sees this as a big enough issue.....I hope I am wrong....but they are concerned more and more players are getting injured because of the increased number of plays the players are playing. More injuries=more lawsuits=more money paying out=Money talks mustard bottles walks.....I suspect we lose on this one.

Where are you getting your information, I haven't seen anything about them being concerned about the number of plays.

It hasn't yet affected Alabubba or uga, so any action is on hold until such time.

(Only half joking)

Someone has to be able to decide when an injury is really an injury.I don't see how it can be done unless you limit a team to 2 injury timeouts per half and penalize any others.

No you don't. Just make a rule that any player exiting due to injury remains on the sidelines for x# of plays, or the remainder of the half, or .......

if your claim is true, it means the NCAA is becoming more Sabanized.

But to avoid a 3rd or 4th string player sent in to take the fall (literal), charge a timeout as well. Every freaking time it happens. It's football, not flop ball.

Feel like we’ve had this conversation before.

Anyone know where we are on teleportation tech? I feel like this could be easily addressed if we just star trekked players on and off the field.

Yeah, I saw this as well, earlier this week. They are concerned about the speed offense causing more injuries, so they are trying to come up with ways of slowing offenses down. Wrong approach if you ask me. I guess there are teams who aren't deep enough to rotate players.
