Title pretty much says it all. Here's the link to the ESPN article.
All turnovers will be reviewed from the booth with no coaches' challenges needed and overtime periods in the regular season will use the same scoring rules as the postseason after NFL owners voted to approve those proposals Wednesday. The replay official already reviews all scoring plays.
What do you think about this? Personally, I think it's dumb, considering all the extra challenges coaches have been given in recent years (they can use as many as 3 per game now, right?). I guess this just means that there will be almost no missed calls from now on; but how many times are we going to have to sit through a challenge delay every game? Also, what is left for coaches to challenge? I can only think of the spot of the ball and catches (whether or not the ball hit the ground, whether or not the ball was caught in-bounds), but other than that, I'd be willing to bet that at least 80% of coaches challenges were for either scoring plays or turnovers.

This week's scouting report is on Baltimore (MD) Gilman defensive tackle/athlete Henry Poggi. I came away pretty impressed with how much he improved from his sophomore to junior season. He seems like a kid who is a pretty safe bet to be successful because he's got a good head on his shoulders, a good understanding of the game, and a pretty good set of athletic skills.

I just read a great article about people trying to name a new high school in Montgomery, AL 'Nick Saban High'. Unfortunately for Tide fans, the name was not accepted but it was a valient effot by those who participated. Kudos for trying!
He's losing 866 to 481.
Not sure if I missed something but where is our fateful recruiting hero of the deep sea Aquaman? He has not posted in over two weeks and I am wondering if the JLA should be alerted. I must say I enjoyed his posts and many updates. I am sure this is all part of contract negotiations with Brian and I am making more out of this then need be but hell its hump day and I am bored at work.
Where art thou Aquaman?
