    Question: if you could add one rule to better CFB or create more competition...

    I think on kick offs adding a rule that gives a point if the kickoff goes through the uprights and then place the ball on the 20 vs the 25 for a missed attempt or touchback would be successful in two ways.

    1. It is a REAL solution to the attempt of making kick offs safer for players

    2. It makes those personal foul penalties after a TD actually mean something


    Yeah the Rose Bowl is boring lol

    Adopt the pro rule for being ruled down

    Adopt NFL rules for DPI, Targeting, and in better protecting the QB (no low tackles permitted)

    I like the NFL rule where you have to touch the player in order to be down. Also, the pass interference should be a spot foul imo instead of a 15 yarder.

    Spot foul in the endzone too? That’s been one I’ve thought about a lot

    Low hits on the QB in a passing posture if the defender is unabated are fouls in NCAA. I believe the rule was based on the NFL rule so likely very similar.

    Chop blocks (high/low) are fouls in NCAA. Do you mean low blocks in general? I expect to see low blocks gradually eliminated or at least reduced to interior linemen immediately at the snap like HS. There are coaches on the rules committee fighting to keep low blocks legal.

    I like the idea of defensive pass interference being a spot foul. What bothers me though is that refs seem to give offensive players too much leniency and defensive players not enough. It would also be one sided in that the offensive team would lose 15 yards for pass interference while the defensive team could give up much more.

    I would like to see a 10 yard penalty when the offense tackles a defensive player. You could call it something generic like “Holding”.

    I have never seen it called - ever. Tua was hit low 20+ times this season when passing with his knee injury.
