Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy weighs in on 10-second rule proposal
Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy took to Twitter to voice his opposition to the proposed rule change that would force teams to wait 10 seconds before snapping the ball.
The controversial proposal to make offenses wait ten seconds to snap the ball has resulted in predictable backlash from up-tempo teams around the country.
Baylor coach Art Briles told CBSSports.com's Dennis Dodd the proposal was "insane" and came "out of the blue."
"I'm trying to figure out the merit involved," Briles said. "I'm trying to figure out how they're going to police it with the referees on the field knowing exactly when it hits 29. I just think there's a lot of potential human error involved in it."
On Thursday, Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy joined his Big 12 colleague in criticizing the proposed rule.

The 10-second rule is like asking basketball to take away the shot clock - Boring!. It’s like asking a blitzing linebacker to raise his hand— Mike Gundy (@CoachGundy) February 13, 2014
