The NCAA is considering a number of rule-change proposals, the most significant of which would alter the way coaches communicate with players on the field.
If the rule is eventually adopted the college game would look more like the NFL, where certain players have wireless devices in their helmets that allow them to communicate with coaches until there are 15 seconds left on the play clock. I was curious what Washington State coach Mike Leach though of the rule change so I asked him, and he told me.
Today the men's basketball team will host the only team to beat Gonzaga, No. 7 Arizona, at 3:30 p.m. There might even be some daylight left for this one.
