I caught this on one of the boards a little earlier...(emphasis added)
Oregon’s offense didn’t know what to do with itself. The defense sure did.
Saturday’s first quarter was marred by a 70-minute weather delay that interrupted the No. 7 Ducks’ 48-13 win at Tennessee. A lightning storm in the vicinity of Neyland Stadium forced the teams from the field with 8:53 left in the first quarter, and they returned an hour later for a 10-minute warm-up period prior to the resumption of play.
To that point, Oregon’s offense had yet to take a snap, owing to a fumbled kickoff return between Tennessee possessions. The defense, however, was able to review runs of 31 and 21 yards it allowed on the first plays of the Vols’ two field-goal drives.
How were they able to "review" those runs?
Here is the rule...
"Motion pictures, any type of film, facsimile machines, videotapes, photographs, writing-transmission
machines and computers may not be used by coaches or for coaching purposes anytime during the game or between periods."
Prohibited Field Equipment
a. Television replay or monitor equipment is prohibited at the sidelines, press box or other locations within the playing enclosure for coaching purposes during the game. Motion pictures, any type of
film, facsimile machines, videotapes, photographs, writing-transmission machines and computers may not be used by coaches or for coaching purposes anytime during the game or between periods.
b. Only voice communication between the press box and team area is permitted. Where press-box space is not adequate, only voice communication may originate from any area in the stands between the25-yard lines extended to the top of the stadium. No other communication for coaching purposes is permitted anywhere else.
c. Media communication equipment, including cameras, sound devices, computers and microphones, is prohibited on or above the field, or in or above the team area (Rule 2-31-1).
The OP who is a friend heard this on ESPN this morning...I didn't hear it myself and I have not had a chance to talk him directly but it is interesting.
I may be nothing, but......
Just thought I would throw it out there.
