Ten-second rule still up for discussion in SEC

The so-called "10-second rule" in college football is dead. At least for the 2014 season. But it's apparently a long way from being buried.

Opponents of the rule like LSU coach Les Miles and Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury have recently reiterated their feelings. However, the Southeastern Conference's officiating coordinator told AL.com that the conversation about the rule is expected to continue into the new season.

In addition to concerns about player safety, proponents of the rule have voiced concerns about referees being able to keep up with the pace of play. It's an issue that Shaw says the conference is aware of and is dealing with as best it can.
