Clock Ticking on Clock Rules? Maybe Not

As Chris Dufrense of the L.A Times first reported last month, Division I-A coaches want to overturn the clock rules that resulted in shorter games, fewer plays and less scoring. A recent survey by the American Football Coaches Association found that 58% of I-A coaches favored a return to 2005 rules, according to David Fox of Rivals. Steve Wieberg of USA Today also has a piece. There remains a strong possibility the rules will merely be tweaked when the NCAA rules committee meets next month. The reason? Administrators do not want to damage revenue streams (sometimes referred to as commercials), so reducing the length of games and maintaining revenue is a real conundrum for the rules committee.
