Poll says few football coaches favor slow-down proposal Published: February 26, 2014

Only 25 of the nation's 128 FBS head coaches are in favor of a rule proposal that would slow down college offenses, according to a survey conducted by ESPN.

Of the 25 in favor of the rule change, only 11 are coaches in "Power 5 Conferences," such as the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC, plus Notre Dame.

If passed, the proposal would prohibit teams from snapping the ball until at least 10 seconds run off the 40-second play clock. The exception would be in the final two minutes of each half.
