What's the deal with this penalty being called because the "ball was snapped before the umpire was in position"?

I don't know much about it, but right now I'm thinking this is goofy. The way I understand it is the Field Judge (who used to set up behind the LB's) is now on the offensive side of the ball. He's the guy that spots the ball for the next play, but now he has to run twice as far to set up before the ball can be snapped.
