Must go faster: Select college players will be electronically monitored in 2013

Three power college football conferences — the SEC, Pac-12 and Big 12 — will outfit players with monitoring devices during the 2013 season, and not for the usual court-mandated reasons! Electronic trackers will relay players’ actions on the field as if they’re dangerous and mysterious wild critters with inexplicable movements and consumptive habits to be studied. We’re not really kidding; to hear Steve Shaw tell it to AL.com, at this point the experiment will be science for science’s sake, which is always interesting:
“I think it really is more for tracking how fast a player is moving and the direction of his movements so you have an electronic signature of all of that … Then what you do with that, we have to figure that out. You could track speed before a collision and that sort of thing. To be honest, I’m not sure what all of the applications are. But it has potential benefit in player safety, so I think it’s worth taking an initial step to see what the technology does.”
