This morning in the Personal Finance section of the Wall Street Journal there was an article on the NFL view of Oregon's (and now Philidelphia's) offense.
I know the WSJ requires one to pay for access so here are some bits for anyone without a subscription.
As Kelly mans his first full week of NFL training camp, installing a high-revving Ferrari engine into the Eagles' offense, league insiders say there are exactly zero indications NFL referees will be willing participants in the Kelly era. The NFL, they say, has a long-standing pace at which they do things between plays and the referees "aren't going to change just to accommodate someone's offense," said Mike Pereira, a former NFL vice president of officiating who is now an analyst for Fox Sports.
"We have to make sure teams understand that they don't control the tempo, our officials do," said NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino. "We're going through our normal ball mechanics, we aren't going to rush [unless] it's in the two minute drill."
Blandino said he has talked to every NFL team coaching staff during the off-season to emphasize that there's no forcing the issue—the offense will not be able to snap the ball until the referees signals they're ready.
They further explored how Kelly was able to get PAC 12 officials to go faster so that his offense could go faster. The Ducks were actually 32% faster than the college average according to the WSJ. That is not going to happen in the NFL because the NFL has specific rules for changing out the ball after incomplete passes or out of bounds plays as well as the fact that the officials must be set before play can begin.
This will be big news down this way because the argument about HUNH (hurry up no huddle) and traditional game play is causing lots fun in the SEC.
Bret Bielema and Nick Saban says it is a safety concern if players and officials are not given an opportunity to get set. Gus Malzan obviously disagrees.
EDIT: Clarified HUNH. It may just be a local term down south.
