Refs Likely to Be Challenged

The Mountain West was the only conference to employ a coaches' challenge in its replay system in 2005. All that is expected to change Tuesday when the NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel is scheduled to vote by conference call on a proposal to make a coach's challenge universal. The measure is expected to pass, but officials have expressed concern over the increasing length of games, which are nearing the 3 hour 30 minute mark. If the measure does pass, it could go one of two ways: coaches would be given one challenge per game, or coaches would be given one challenge per half (some registration).
