Arizona's Rich Rodriguez Stars in 'Speed' Spoof Encouraging Uptempo Offense

College football teams like the Oregon Ducks have pushed the tempo on offense in recent seasons. Many squads have adapted that style, and in response, the NCAA is now looking at slowing down the game.

A proposed rule would force teams to wait 10 seconds before running a play in order to lower the risk of injury. If passed, the rule change would negatively affect the Ducks and other squads that rely on pushing the tempo.

Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez likes to keep his offense moving. He took the time to create a Speed spoof to oppose the proposed rule change.

The acting isn't exactly Oscar-worthy, but the Wildcats coach makes his stance very clear.
