What UIL rule(s) would you change if possible?

Recommended Posts

Targeting would be my first one to change. Or the penalty for it. No one in anyone football league gets it right so I’d approach it differently. 
 

Would also crack down on transferring for athletic reasons. Happens all the time and things are rarely done about it.

1. District champion gets home 1rst round playoff game.

2. In basketball a 24 second shot clock.

What would y'all think about the NCAA (and thus Texas and the UIL) implementing the  new XFL kickoff rules (especially how and where the opposing teams line up on the field? 

Would it help reducing injuries often caused by the high-speed hits (i.e. blindside blocks, blocks in the back, blocks below the knees, etc.)  thus making football "safer?"

Change the rules back the way it used to be on stopping the clock on out of bounds plays. The clock should be stopped on all out of bound plays and started again on the next snap .... This rule was changed years ago to shorten games and provide more time for commercials ... starting the clock after out of bound plays when it's made ready for play by the refs takes away a lot of time for actual football ....

Hole up hole up, I need to start paying attention. The clock continues to run even when the ball is ran outta bounds? Somebody been watching too many home cooked games.

My point exactly  ....  so there was no need to speed up the games at the high school level by running the clock on out of bound plays .... the quarters are already shorter than NCAA and NFL games ....  I don't think they should have done this at ANY level of football, much less at the high school level .... which doesn't have commercials because 99.9% of them aren't televised .... comprende? ....

Are you even old enough to remember when  they changed this rule?

This "game shortening" rule probably costs each team a posession each game ...

What rule? Stopping clock when out of bounds? Probably not old enough to remember that rule change.

Targeting. There is no video replay at the high school level so it shouldn't be a rule without it. We had a kid disqualified from a game for it this year. 1. it was not targeting. 2. they disqualified the wrong kid anyways even if it was targeting. They disqualified the kid that had the ball carrier wrapped up around the legs, not the kid that cleaned up the tackle.

I agree with the shot clock in basketball but 35 seconds is a little more reasonable.

Who’s gonna help pay for shot clocks and the workers needed for them?

I actually enjoy a good stall ball vs run and gun game.

high school has two different levels of targeting. 1. no DQ accidental helmet contact 2. DQ for a flagrant hit, or 2 accidentals

I don't remember what year it changed, but the clock used to stop when a player went out of bounds, clock didn't start again until the next snap ... just like an incomplete pass .... tru storie  .... it was like that from the 50s-60s probably until sometime in the 90s ...

Sort of like the "ground can't cause a fumble" .... back when I played, you better have the ball at the end of the play, because they never used to make those rulings  .... don't  know when they came up with that rule either ....

They get enough of my money through taxes, so that shouldn't be a problem.
