New NCAA football rules aim to suppress concussions and Lane Kiffin

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

Two of football's primary scourges are among the items the NCAA's rules committee hopes to limit.

Wednesday, the NCAA's rules committee released a set of nine new rules it wants to add for the 2013 college football season. They address head injuries, fake injuries, Lane Kiffin, Lane Kiffin again, and more replays. A lot more replays. After literally minutes of analysis, we give our verdict on the necessity and effectiveness of each of these rules.

NEW RULE No. 1: Targeting and hitting defenseless players above the shoulders results in a 15-yard penalty and ejection.
