I have mixed feelings about instant replay in college football. Everybody wants the right calls, but do we really need coaches throwing challenge flags? I liked the way instant replay was handled last year. If the officials on the field messed up, the official in the booth caught it and most of the time, it was corrected. What was wrong with the way everything ran last year?
I remember Lloyd Carr (Michigan) having to burn at least 2 timeouts during the Alamo Bowl against Nebraska in order to give the replay booth more time to review a play in question, and in turn, make the correct ruling. Carr nearly came unglued.
I think that the timeout rule in basketball is stupid.
I agree about the BB timeout change, it takes away some excitement from the game.
As far as the coaches challenge I support it 100%. I think there are times when it's needed and coaches won't waste a timeout if they don't think it's a good chance they will overturn the call.
