just read that on a fellow Huskerspotters facebook post. Too funny!
Here's what my father-in-law and I decided is what we need to do to protect players:
-The field will no longer be grass or artificial grass but made of nurf foam.
-Players are no longer allowed to touch each other, and flag football could cause rug like burns, so they will point to the player and call out their name to tackle them.
-Running is not allowed, and walking could cause injury too, so players will sit in the stands.
-Coaches will be the only ones to take the field, carefully sitting in EZ chairs they will just tell the refs what they had planned to do, and then the refs will decide who won the game.
Dan Beebe's new rule on how the Nebraska defense can line up. It must be a 43 defense at all times with the following restrictions at the spots.
The defense linemen have to all weigh under 200 lbs and cannot be taller than 5'11. Also, no defender can line up outside the offensive tackle.
The linebackers cannot get within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage and cannot run outside the hashmarks.
The cornerbacks and safeties cannot weigh less than 300 lbs and cannot run faster than a 5.0 40 yard dash. If no players can be found weighing in at over 300 lbs, Nebraska just leaves that spot open and the offense gets to counter by adding another player on the offensive side of the ball.
I think it's really funny. Do I really think there's a conspiricy? No. Has there been enough goofy stuff going on to make me wonder a little? Yes. The Big 12 powers that be would hate for us to win the championship on our way out, but I don't think the officials are being "bought". However, we'd better play error free ball and get up fast on everyone just to be safe.
