Nice try Nick

After three weeks of controversy, the NCAA Football Rules Committee has withdrawn a rule proposal that would have slowed down hurry-up offenses.

A survey of 128 FBS head coaches last week by ESPN found overwhelming opposition to the proposal. Ninety-three (73.5 percent) of coaches were opposed; 24 (19.5 percent) were in favor; nine (seven percent) were undecided.

"This is a victory for common sense and protecting the game of football," Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin told USA TODAY Sports.

As expected, the rules committee forwarded a tweak to the existing targeting rule to the oversight panel. If targeting is overturned by replay review overturning an automatic ejection a 15-yard penalty will no longer be assessed.

Good rule tweak, that **** was retarded.

Thank god. Idk how this rule was accepted the way it was last year. "Yeah we got the call wrong and the player won't be ejected, but were still gonna give the 15 yard penalty."
