    I am not a fan of the rule and I think the defense should be able to do anything they want to as long as they stay on their side of the ball.

    I agree. Especally when no contact is made. Either let it be a no call, or play it over again.

    The reasoning behind the rule was to cut down legitimate induced false starts, but has gotten ridiculous in carrying over too far the other direction.
