It is known that Alabama coach Nick Saban is a big supporter of the new proposed college football rule to slow down offenses by putting in a 10-second substitution period between plays. The Crimson Tide coach gave ESPN this comparison...

"I don't care about getting blamed for this. That's part of it," "But I do think that somebody needs to look at this very closely.

“The fastball guys (up-tempo coaches) say there’s no data out there, and I guess you have to use some logic. What’s the logic? If you smoke one cigarette, do you have the same chances of getting cancer if you smoke 20? I guess there’s no study that specifically says that. But logically, we would say, ‘Yeah, there probably is.’

Probably will start seeing more players falling down with "cramps" or other ailments from the teams that was in favor of the slow down rule. All of a sudden you will start to get data to keep supporting the new proposed rule change. What can the teams that play fast actually say when you start seeing this happen with players falling down? Its not a penalty to do that. All they can, could, and will do is complain and throw their arms in disgust. The fans of the uptempo offense will boo, but what can that do?
