    i'd imagine we can't really ban or even limit the read option, but i guess that would be a group decision

    I don't mind it with teams that run it, but don't expect me to ever come out of dime or dime flat and send corners if your going to run silly gimmick offense that exploits lesser talent in college ranks.

    It's more of a principle thhing for me I guess....why prep a QB to be a glorified HB because defenses are slower in college. It defeats any chances of being a pro for that student (of course they're exceptions, but for every RG3 they're are 5 Eric Crouch's)

    Can't ban the read-option... it's too much of a big part of the college game now days.

    I use a spread-pass first offense in NCAA myself, but I can't sign off on trying to limit the option game.

    You can't limit or ban something that encompasses the primary focus of entire teams, such as spread option teams like Oregon or triple option teams like Air Force and Georgia Tech. Same reason you can't really enforce a balanced offense in college, because teams like Houston and Texas Tech run Air Raids, which utilizes shallow routes as it's primary "run game". Honestly you're going to have a hard time limiting a lot of things in the college game, since so many different styles of offense are considered viable at the collegiate level.
