NCAA Rule Changes
* Players disqualified for targeting will be allowed to remain on the sidelines starting with the 2020 football season.

* High school students intending to play NCAA Division I or II sports whose final semesters of their senior year were disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic will have several pathways to meet the NCAA’s initial-eligibility requirements this year.

“The Eligibility Center is navigating the complexity of COVID-19 and its negative impact on our membership, high schools and student-athletes,” said Felicia Martin, vice president of the NCAA Eligibility Center. “We understand this is an unprecedented situation and a difficult time for students and their parents, and the Eligibility Center is working diligently to ensure the best possible outcome for college-bound student-athletes and our member schools.”

* Division I coaches in all sports will be allowed more virtual connection with their teams beginning Monday, April 20, and continuing through May 31, the Division I Council Coordination Committee determined this week.

* A former Buffalo assistant men’s basketball coach violated NCAA ethical conduct rules when he forged a written statement in support of a transferring student-athlete’s request to have the year-in-residence requirement waived, according to an agreement released by the Division I Committee on Infractions.

This case was processed through the negotiated resolution process. The process was used because the university, the former assistant coach and the NCAA enforcement staff agreed on the violations and the penalties.

* New guidelines for instant replay are also being implemented for the 2020 season. Officials will now be instructed to complete video reviews in less than two minutes, though that will not be a hard time limit.

* Changes also will now officially allow players to wear the No. 0, beginning this upcoming season, while no more than two players per team will be allowed to wear the same jersey number.

the first one is overdue. plenty of clean players who got called for a questionable targeting call have been treated like felons and escorted by police and staff off the premises. getting thrown out of the game is enough. putting him on time out in the locker room is silly.

i would prefer the replay time out is the same length as a regular time out, not a full 2 minutes. actually, i would prefer we played basketball with officials who didn't second guess their calls instead of stopping the game for at least 2 minutes so they could look at a screen instead of us looking at a game being played.

does the last rule change mean teams can have two number 4s and couple 11s, a pair of 23s, and which #23 gets the call if both are on the court? definitely not jordan. oh, maybe it's just for football.

RE: NCAA Rule Changes
It's a penalty if 2 players with the same number are on the field at the same time. Never paid attention to that before, but it was called in a game last year when an injured player was replaced by another player with the same number as someone on the kick-off team. Can't remember what game it was, but it was against Toledo. When the flag hit the ground, I just assumed it was Toledo getting called for yet another illegal block in the back on a kick-off return.
