Huntsville, Ala. - (WHNT) Coaches, players and radio show hosts alike have been arguing for more than three weeks about a proposed rule aimed at slowing down some of college football's fastest offenses. According to USA Today, the argument was put to bed when the NCAA Rules committee took it's proposal off the table. The controversial proposal was drawn up in February during a meeting which included the presence of Arkansas coach Bret Bielema and Alabama's Nick Saban. Those two SEC coaches believe the increased number of plays per game will lead to an increased number of injuries. The player safety aspect is what allowed this rule to be drawn up during a "non-rules" year. Despite all the hoopla this subject has caused recently, it's not anything we will see on the field in 2014.
