SEC coordinator of officials Steve Shaw met the media today and stepped everyone through the rule changes coming to college football this season. For the sake of knowledge, we encourage you to read his comments right here.
Each fall, we get tons of questions about rules and rule interpretations. Mainly because no fan of any team has ever felt a call has gone for his favorite team. That’s just sports. Still, knowing the changes ahead of time might help fend off some Saturday rage down the road.
According to Shaw you can expect coaches’ sideline behavior to be a “point of emphasis” this year. Also — as you know – many of the changes are being made to better protect players.
