NCAA Football Heading Toward Different Replay System


The NCAA Football Rules Committee voted on Thursday to let conferences experiment with a command center type of replay. The thought of this is to let a collaboration of people take a look at the replay as opposed to just one specific person. The replay official at the stadium will still make the final call, but will receive input from others before coming to that decision.

As typical with college football, this is because of the SEC. While many might think the disaster at the end of the Miami-Duke game is the reason for more people to look at this, the SEC actually demanded collaborative replay in its proposal to the rules committee. Expect the SEC to be the first conference to experiment with this change in replay system next year.

On top of that switch, there’s the possibility refs can review the targeting penalty, even if one isn’t called. If there seems to be an egregious missed call it looks like the refs will have a chance to correct their mistake, leading to an ejection.

    Why don’t they just have a person in a studio review the play then call down onto the field whether or not the play should change or stay as called? Would be much quicker and not cause as much frenzy in the stadium

    This makes it sound like it could taken even longer to review plays since now a group of people will have to form a consensus.
