A Solution to College Football's Kickoff Conundrum

Greg Schiano has offered, and Mark Richt has endorsed, a proposal to eliminate kickoffs in college football. Dawg Sports offers an alternative suggestion to address their valid concerns without altering fundamentally the nature of the game.

Abolishing kickoffs would lead to safer, more interesting games

Andy Staples analyzes Rutgers coach Greg Schiano interesting proposal to eliminate kickoffs. But listen to Schiano for a minute. Hear his reasons for wanting to eliminate one of the most dangerous plays in his sport. Then think hard about his alternative. Teams can punt from the 30-yard line to open halves and after scoring, or, if they want to maintain possession, they could opt to run a fourth-and-15 play from the 30. It sounds so strange. It sounds so sacrilegious. It sounds so ... so ... awesome.
