    Based on the unanimous recommendation of the Mechanics Committee, please find the attached MechaniGrams illustrating the revised kick-off mechanics for a crew of 8 and a crew of 7 that we will move to for the 2019 football season.  These new mechanics were initially driven by the new two man wedge rule, but the Committee feels that this will give us better overall coverage for player safety fouls and routine fouls such as block in the back, holding etc. Please ensure that you communicate to your officials that the yard lines and the zones illustrated are guidelines, and are not set in stone.  If an official has no legitimate threat of a foul in their zone – then they should broaden their vision.  Conversely, if an official views a player that leaves their zone and that player presents a potential threat of a foul, the official should stay with that player.

    Best of luck to all as we prepare for the season.

    We welcome you back to the official website of College Football Officiating, LLC (CFO)!  Our “central hub” provides a common national platform where we can gather for mutual growth and improvement, as we strive to improve the great game of college football.  Allow me to give you a brief walk-through of the features of this site.

    REGISTRATION is now available, and registered officials will receive a Welcome Packet that includes a 2019 Rules and Interpretations Book, 2019 Instant Replay Case Book, and 2019 CCA Crew of 7 & 8 College Football Officiating Manual.  In addition, ArbiterSports and Referee Enterprises will again provide a digital CCA manual app for all NCAA registered football officials.

    On the VIDEO Tab, you will receive weekly in-season CFO Game Video Reviews, preseason weekly CFO/NCAA Annual Training Video and Instant Replay Training Video for 2019, and occasional topical videos.  All registered officials will have opportunities this season to see plays posted by coordinators from conferences across the country, part of our mission to promote national consistency in collegiate football.  Additionally, all videos can be viewed on Apple and Android mobile devices.

    When available, the CFO/NCAA National Rules Test will be accessed by clicking on the TESTING tab.  An email will be sent when it's open.  This is a great tool for honing your rules knowledge and application.  I encourage you to meet my challenge of scoring 90% or higher (there are 100 questions) in a self-imposed “closed book” test. 

    The searchable NCAA Football Rules and Interpretations book can be found on the RULES Tab.  The database includes rules and case books that basically operate as “e-books” and are searchable.  The database also allows quick and easy reference between rules and their case items (and vice versa), which is a great feature.  I encourage you to make extensive use of this asset, and discover for yourself the ways an online presentation can help you study and know the rules of NCAA football. 

    Please check the central hub often for the latest officiating news and information. Officials should not hesitate to CONTACT us to offer suggestions on how we can best use this site to help you.  On behalf of the CFO’s Board of Managers, welcome to the organization, and have a great season!
