NEW YORK (AP) - The NCAA football rules committee tabled a proposal Wednesday that would have penalized offenses for snapping the ball before 10 seconds had run off the 40-second play clock.
After a conference call, the panel agreed not to send the so-called 10-second rule to the playing rules oversight panel for approval Thursday.
NCAA national coordinator of officials Rogers Redding says withdrawing the proposal allows ''time to gather more information from the medical community and allow time for a broader discussion of the implications of that change.''
The proposal, touted as a move to protect players by slowing fast-break offenses, infuriated many coaches.
Redding also says a new proposal was passed to expand roughing the passer to include ''forcible'' hits to the knees or below.
