The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel has approved an experimental rule that will allow the Big Ten and Mid-American conferences to use instant replay on certain plays within the restricted area arc during the 2016-17 season.
The experimental rule, which will be in effect only during conference play, can be used when an official believes that an incorrect call was made on a restricted area ruling, or when a head coach makes an appeal for a review.If a coach appeals and the instant-replay review determines the official’s call was correct, the appealing coach’s team will be charged a timeout. If the call is reversed on appeal, no timeout will be charged.
The experimental rule can be applied only during Big Ten and Mid-American conference games under the following conditions:
- Instant replay can be used only in the last two minutes of the second half or the last two minutes of any overtime period.
- Instant replay may be used only when an official has made a block/charge call in or around the restricted area arc, and the decision is based on whether the defensive player was in or outside the arc. Instant replay may not be used on no-calls.
- Any review, whether by the officials or a coach’s appeal, must be recognized and corrected before the ball next becomes live.
Didn't see this posted yesterday. The Preseason All-B1G team was announced yesterday, and Derrick Walton Jr. was named to the 10-person team.
Interesting list. Three players from Wiscy, two from Indiana, NONE from MSU.
I'll be in the LA area for work the week of December 5, so I am seriously considering staying on for the game on Saturday 12/10. It looks like there are some tickets available on ticketmaster in a variety of sections. Can any of our CA MGoFans offer any suggestions about Pauley Pavilion or tell me if there's an LA alum group organizing sitting in a section together etc.?
Thanks for the help!
I know MGOBLOG is in full football mode right now but Dylan over at UMHOOPS has an article up with his takeaways from the Basktball Media day and open practice. It's worth checking out for those that love Basketball as much or almost as much as football.
