NCAA timing rule changes ??

I see where they are starting the clock on a kick
when the foot hits the ball and going to starting the clock on the
ready for play after a change of possession.
Can the NFHS be far behind ??
I always thought it was a mistake when the Federation
went to clock starting on the snap after a change of
reaction ??
Keep everything in front of you
and have fun out there !!

This change was put in due to the amount of time being taken to play games that are being televised. I don't see any problem at the high school level where games are already shorter in time due to the 12 min qtr. I may be wrong but I suspect that the NCAA will scrap this rule next year. There are already coaches who don't like this change so it's possible they can push to get rid of it.
