What is that 10 second rule?
 
I heard them talking about taking 10 seconds off or something like that. Under a minute or under 2 min? I only caught part of it as the people with me were yelling at the refs, but if you guys know what I am talking about let me know.

After the 2 minute warning, when there is an offensive penalty while the clock is running, there is an automatic 10 second run off unless the offense wants to use a time out.

when did this start? Has it been going on without me noticing it all these years or is it just something that they usually don't talk about and I miss but these refs had to mention it because they didn't know what the hell was going on?

Several years ago. I think the point was to stop teams from commiting a foul to stop the clock. Something like running a play and seeing the last couple of seconds run off before you can line up and spike the ball, so you have one of your players commit a personal foul to stop the clock. They added a new rule two years ago (thanks to our win over Miami) that also forces a 10 second run off when you lose a review.

Err, umm... if you pick it up and eat it before 10 seconds, it's OK?

(...just kidding). :-D

Yeah, if the ref's nachos or beer fall on the turf they have like ten seconds to lick'em up or a coin toss determines which team gets penalized for messing the up the field. They have to blame someone else as it's certainly not their fault they're so freakin' sloppy.

It has been around 6-7 years I think. I was at the Pitt-Atl game awhile ago and it came into play: Pitt driving at end of regulation with 7-8 seconds to go. Wideout flinched, procedure called, on to overtime.
