SEARCY, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas coach Bret Bielema says he expects a much-scrutinized proposal to prohibit snapping the ball until at least 10 seconds run off the 40-second play clock to pass when the NCAA playing rules oversight panel votes on March 6.
Bielema, speaking to the media before a meeting of the White County Razorback Club on Thursday night, reiterated his stance that the proposal is safety-based - saying he wants to be proactive and make a change before presented with a player's ''death certificate.''
The former Wisconsin coach pointed to the recent death of California football player Ted Agu during a training run, saying the inability to substitute an injured player between plays could lead to injury or death.
A host of up-tempo, no-huddle coaches, including Auburn's Gus Malzahn, have come out publicly against the proposed rule.
