Here is story they were referring to that ran Monday in Alabama.
Pro-style coaches like Bret Bielema, Nick Saban and Will Muschamp say uptempo offenses create safety problems for defenses, but proponents like Gus Malzahn, Hugh Freeze and Kevin Sumlin point to conditioning, challenges faced by the offense.
Do you agree with Coach Bielema? Personally, I do.
yes I do. o line are not chasing qbs and ball carries every play. obviously d linemen do have to chase the play

Guys, Bielema isn't saying ban the HUNH or anything. He is asking for 15 seconds or so after a first down to give the defense time to substitute. I'm not sure that an unrealistic thing to ask for. The offense has the option of substituting on any play if they choose so why shouldn't the defense after a first down?
The rules are the same for everyone and the offense controls the snap.They have 25 sec to put the ball in play. If the offense substitutes then they have to give the defense a chance to substitute as well. We don't need a rule change we just need a big boy defense to stop (body slam) the little speed guys. See LSU vs Oregon & Auburn vs Oregon.
Why does everyone keep bringing up just ONE team? Oregon.
I'm only responsible for what I SAY, not for what YOU UNDERSTAND.
That's a good point really.
Heck even if it was 10 seconds just to keep it shorter and give enough time for 1 player or something fast.
But technically that's what time outs are for if you need to.
Or 1 extra time out or something like that might be easier or a better way of doing it but who knows.

Sorry guys, I just don't see where making a rule like this benefits football as a whole. If you want to create a rule, you should be able to justify it for the greater good of the game. I just don't see coach Bielema's football logic on this. I do on the other hand see the biased logic.
I'm confused....if the offense can sub on any play what's prohibiting the D from doing the same? Am I missing something???
