Ball State coach not enthused with NCAA proposal

Ask Pete Lembo, and he'll tell you one of the biggest keys to his team's hurry-up offense isn't going at a blazing pace, it's the threat of a quick snap.
That little thing allows a no-huddle offense to dictate terms. Even a scheme like Ball State's, which isn't the blur of an Oregon or Auburn, still runs up to the line before checking off, uses that to keep defensive personnel static and units off-balance.
But a new rule proposal could limit the effectiveness of that, and Lembo is less than happy with the idea.
