New football ejection rule will be controversial

The most important rules change for the 2013 college football season was by far the most discussed by ACC coaches during the league’s Kickoff event earlier this week in Greensboro, N.C. The new rule dictates that players can be ejected if it’s deemed they intentionally hit a defenseless player above the shoulders. If a player is ejected in the first half and the ruling stands, he’s finished for the game. If an ejection occurs during the second half, the player has to sit out the remainder of the game plus the first half of his next game. (WRAL Sports Fan)
