South Carolina's Steve Spurrier doesn't like a rule proposal that would slow down college offenses by forcing them to wait 10 seconds to snap the ball. He's also not afraid of calling out Alabama's Nick Saban, who's for the rule, in the process...

"So, you want to talk about the 'Saban Rule'?" Spurrier told USA Today on Thursday. "That's what I call it. Looks like it's dead now, hopefully."
Saban and Arkansas coach Bret Bielema support the proposal for safety reasons as they say, but they've also been longtime opponents of hurry-up offenses. Saban said at last summer's SEC media day...

"Should we allow football to be a continuous game? Is that the way the game was designed to play?"
The Playing Rules Oversight Panel will consider the slowdown proposal March 6.
