Arkansas head coach Brett Bielema got a chance to speak with media on Thursday and he stands by the proposal to prohibit snapping the ball until at least 10 seconds run off the 40-second play clock. This is what Bielema had to say:
"If one of those players is on the field for me, and I have no timeouts, I have no way to stop the game," Bielema said. "And he raises his hand to stop the game, and I can't do it. What am I supposed to do?
"What are we supposed to do when we have a player who tells us he's injured?"
In regards to the claim that there is no hard evidence of increased risk of injury, Bielema had this to say:
"Death certificates," Bielema said. "There's no more anything I need than that."
"You have someone pass in the game of football on live TV, (and) see how that affects youth football."
