The 40/25 second clock rules take center stage in this edition of our podcast. Stopping by our studio was the talented Andy Staples of SI.com. Writing earlier in the day on The Sweep, Andy detailed how coaches have to share much of the blame for the reduction in plays:
"We've seen it all season. A team lines up with about 20 seconds remaining on the play clock. After the quarterback barks signals for a few seconds, all 11 offensive players turn in unison toward the sideline. There, the offensive coordinator, two backup quarterbacks and a graduate assistant look like an interpretive dance troupe that got into a bad bag of mushrooms. The play clock reaches 10 seconds, and the offense shifts. Then, as the clock winds down and the back judge reaches for his flag, the center finally snaps the ball."
