Touch rugby sounds about as crazy as no-hands basketball, but leave it to some Kiwis to make it happen. Rush Rugby is both a product and a sport, developed and promoted by the new company PlaySmart. Tackles are made by a high-tech version of two-hand touch, where sensors on opposite sides of a player's shirt must be tagged within a short time period for a player to be down. The shirt lights up and makes noise when a player is tackled.
We're betting that recently fired head football coach Tommy Bowden would not have been a fan of Clemson's new iTiger technology. When your team is expected to compete for the national title and starts the year 3-3, allowing fans to send emails to the coach's show during the game isn't going to help morale. iTiger is a website accessible from wireless devices within Clemson's stadium that will allow fans to watch video, order food and, yes, submit questions to the coach. Lucky for Bowden, the "submit a question" feature was not enabled during his 20-17 loss to Maryland.
