There has been a heated discussion over the last month in regards to the NCAA's tabled 10-second proposed rule. LSU coach Les Miles has remained silent for the most part, but finally voiced his opinion when he addressed the media after the first spring practice on Saturday. Here is what he said per Nola.com:
quote:

"I find there's no reason to make the change unless you want to limit plays, slow the ball being snapped, reduce scoring and make college football less marketable," Miles said Saturday after the Tigers' first spring practice.
quote:

"There's little or no evidence that would say that injury is likely," Miles said. "Having said that, the incidence of injury in football is 100 percent. That being said, 'He hurt his hand. Why? Because he was playing football. He hurt his elbow. Why? Because he was playing football.'

"Fatigue, if there's a guy on there that's tired, here's how we handle it: We played Oregon and Auburn and a number of teams that use the up-tempo offense, right? Here's what happens: The guy goes like this (patting his head) when he gets tired. When the ball is stopped, he runs off the field quickly. And we put another guy on the field quickly. It just happens. As the time it takes to get on the far hash, it becomes difficult to do, don't get me wrong. But in the ebb and flow of the game, it's not been an issue for us."

I think if you have to pick between the 10 second rule and going back to older rules on substitution I'd take the latter.
