God I hate the NCAA. Basically they're increasing the time between plays from 25 seconds to 40 seconds, which means fewer plays per quarter and more standing around, and a much shorter window of opportunity in the 4th quarter to stage a comeback.
Apparently there were too many exciting last-second upsets last year, and entirely too much potential huddling and standing-with-arms-akimbo time wasted playing football. Excellent work, Rules Committee! Your job here is done.
