Kansas Jayhawks coach Charlie Weis recently met with the media to preview spring practice. The coach covered a variety of topics including new coaches, players and position battles.
Weis also shared his thoughts on the new 10 second defensive substitution rule. He said he doesn’t see any way that the NCAA will actually pass the rule, but he does have another solution.
“I will say if you watch those teams that snap the ball in a hurry, they’re never set,” said Weis. “So, I don’t think they should change the rule, I think they should call an illegal procedure. Because how many times have they set? Just watch the games. The ball’s being snapped and there are still guys moving around and that’s a penalty. But those guys who can snap the ball in 10 seconds, more power to them, if everyone’s legal.”
Weis believes that in most games last year the defense was ready to play before the ball was snapped anyway. He also said it just comes down to practicing for the type of offense the team is going to face on game day.
