The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel (PROP) officially approved NCAA rule changes during this offseason. Their actions followed the recommended changes by the NCAA Football Rules Committee members after their study in examining NCAA data.

These rule changes are brought about first and foremost for the increased safety of the players. The sanctioned changes stemmed from the higher level of injuries sustained on kick and punt returns.

Georgia State Special Teams Coach Jason French put on a microphone and took to the chalk board to explain these rules to we fans. It is time for you to do your homework for the 2012 season and learn these new rules so you are not surprised when the ball is kicked off at the Georgia Dome on August 30.
