Arizona coach parodies “Speed” in scathing, funny rebuttle to Calhoun’s committee

Arizona football coach Rich Rodriguez, along with some clever video editing, released a funny, scathing reaction to the rules committee’s recommendation that teams not be allowed to snap the ball until 10 seconds have run off the play clock. Rodriguez appears in a parody of the movie “Speed,” and makes no effort to hide his belief that agendas that had nothing to do with player safety led to the recommendation from the committee that is chaired by Air Force coach Troy Calhoun.

Agree with the premise or not, the video is pretty funny.
