NCAA Tables the "Saban Slowdown" Rule

I just read that the NCAA had tabled the slow-down rule. The story (link below) said 73% of the NCAA D-1 coaches were against the rule. Saban nonetheless stuck to his guns, with some sort of analogy between running plays at a faster rate than he liked and smoking cigarettes. Saban may be a fine coach, but he should not pretend to be able to string coherent thoughts together in public. The notion that giving the defense ten seconds to substitute will lead to player safety is giant non-sequitur. Unless you're Saban, I guess. Having your 6'2. 220 lb safety decapitate a wide receiver coming across the middle somehow becomes safe if you force the offense to wait ten seconds before they run the play. Nick, stick to coaching. Stop thinking. It makes us all hurt.
