I know there isn't a pandemic of broken necks in hockey, it just more to the point of recognizing the risks and educating the players as opposed to trying to legislate safety until the game isn't the game anymore.

    People are going to tear up knees, break things, dislocate limbs, and get concussions in a sport where you have large people smashing into each other at full speed, yet people act shocked an appalled that it happens. I understand trying to protect the athletes from themselves but at some point this basic concept just has to be recognized as a fact of the game.

    if it were illegal in the NFL, I'm sure the flag would have come out on this play:

    I like all three. All three can cause a senseless injury.

    Re: NCAA Rules Committee: 3 Rule Recommendations

    Is there a restriction on how large the nameplate may be on a jersey?

    If not,then all a team needs to do is make the name plate most of the jersey. (or at least larger.)

    If memory serves, Conrad Dobler was the guy most well-known for the "leg whip" block (made illegal sometime in the 1970s).

    The knee pad thing is an easy fix at this point.

    They used to be and never stayed over the knee. Cause the pant leg to not stay tight. Over the last decade equipment has evolved and schools will just get these for their players




    Rather than




    Insert ADIDAS or UA for those schools with those contracts.

    I used to care about UNI football. May well again some day....

    You mean like when the NFL made it a 15 yd penalty to grasp someone's hair in the process of making a tackle? Within a season, ridiculously long hair was everywhere.

    Each of the 3 proposals must still be approved by the Playing Rules Oversight Panel, which is scheduled to meet April 19th.
    #1 is stupid.
    #2 I'm for. It seems like the macho attitude has resulted in less and less pads over the years...
    #3 I think I'm against; we got plenty of rules, another just makes the officiating worse.
