Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn has expressed his opinion to chairman of the rules committee Troy Calhoun. “The bottom line, this is not a rule change year, and for a rule to be changed it has to be under the umbrella of health and safety,” Malzahn told reporters.

“The fact that there is absolutely zero evidence, documented evidence, that is hazardous on the pace of the play.”

“What I asked him to do is move this to next year where it is a rule change year.”

The NCAA’s rules oversight committee will vote on that proposal on March 6th.
