So the NCAA is proposing any fair catch before the 25 yard line results in the ball being placed on the 25 yard line so basically it is a touchback. I suppose this is to get rid of sky kicking and the high impact collisions that can occur. I am a big fan of keeping the players safe but feel more and more like we are heading towards flag football.
Oh, and thanks SI for the subtle dig at UT fans:
A much more effective solution was proposed by a coach seven years ago. It’s the full measure as opposed to the committee’s half measure. Not only would it make the game safer, it also would make it more interesting. Who is this prescient coach? You’re not going to like the answer, Tennessee fans.
It’s Greg Schiano.
