The Atlantic Coast Conference will use instant reply on an experimental basis beginning with the 2005 football season. The proposal, drawn up by the league's athletics directors, was approved unanimously by the faculty representatives at the conference's winter meetings.

I hadn't heard how everyone felt about the Big Ten's replay, I'm glad it was well received, and that other conferences are emulating it.

Mountain West still tinkering with the format

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- The Mountain West Conference will utilize instant replay for the 2005 football season, subject to formal approval by the NCAA on February 24.

It is anticipated ample video footage of MWC football contests will be available to feed the instant replay system. Last season, 89 percent of the conference's games were televised (only seven were not), in 2006 nearly every football game will be aired.

A subcommittee will be asked to fully outline the details of the Mountain West Conference instant replay plan, along with a projected budget. While the list of reviewable plays will be established by the NCAA, a number of logistical and infrastructure questions will be left to the discretion of the conferences.

Those issues include whether the replay official will work from the field or the booth, whether or not coaches' challenges will be permitted, use of television and/or in-stadium video, numbers of personnel, technical equipment, etc. The subcommittee will analyze available information from the NFL replay system and the experiment conducted by the Big Ten Conference last season.

"The Mountain West Conference has proven it competes at the highest level of Division I-A football," said commissioner Craig Thompson. "This initiative, which we see as an opportunity to enhance our football operation, is another example of our commitment and something we have aggressively pursued."
