09:06 AM ET 07.20 | The Big 12 conference will experiment with eight officials, placing an "alternate referee" in the offensive backfield, on whichever side the referee doesn't occupy. And the extra official has one primary job. In this age of hurryup offenses, of quick snaps and frantic substitutions, the alternate ref is being asked to retrieve the ball and set it ready for play as quickly as possible. "It's not officials' role to say, 'we're going too fast,'" said Walt Anderson, the Big 12's director of officiating. "I would tell this to coaches: 'It's your game. You play it how you want to play it. My job is to figure out how to keep up with it.'"

I see increased referees injuries in the future. faster pace means they will pull a hammy or hurt a finger putting the ball in place.

Then the Ref's will sue the NCAA for not training them on prevention of injuries...

So what will happen come bowl season, when there won't be an exra official to hurry up and spot the ball?

LOL, yeah some of these refs are toting too much weight around. Why not make some of these refs pass a PT test once a year??

Got to tell ya:A fine day to all of you!!!! Great news, beat them odds to death, better watch them words. Here goes. Got a full heart scan yesterday, took a couple of hours, in fact, did two of them, they could not believe the results, so I had to do it again. WOW, I got to see an amazing thing, my own heart, inside and out. Saw inside both chambers, the machine measured inside each one, showed my own blood going in and going out of it, it pulsates, not flows, did both chambers, then she backed the view up so I could see my whole heart, looked just like you see on tv, and it was just a pumping away, she even showed me my liver underneath it, she said it looked to be in great shape (sigh of relief). That was amazing. Then the docs. Not one, not two, but three, studied the film, showed my heart had made vast improvments from under 30% to between 35-40% so them rascals made me do it all over again. You know what. Did it again, too. 35 to 40%, might make it now another 6 to 10 years or so and now I do not need another operation nor do Ii need a defib, Praise My Lord, I do give Him all the Glory and thank Him, and I mean that with all my heart, cause He did save it!Can I say it ----Yipppeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Colonel, great news!!!
