More on Replay

An "NCAA Committee" has set forth a recommendation that all member schools/conferences be allowed to use video replay.

Some interesting information from the AP release-

The Big 10 was the only conference to use the replay system last year, on a trial basis.  Here are some of the noted results:

  • The system was used in 28 of 57 conference games last year
  • Of the 43 calls in question, 21 were overturned
  • Games where replay was used averaged 3 more minutes than non-replay games
Apparently the overall response has been very supportive.  I haven't seen much news from several other conferences, though, most notably the Pac-10 and many of the non-BCS conferences.  Perhaps this has gained support along partisan lines, so to speak?  That is, the power conferences, sans arguably the least powerful member (Pac-10) have rushed to implement this, while the non-BCS conferences and maverick BCS member Pac-10 have been quiet.
