    The NCAA has denied Notre Dame's request to overturn 21 vacated wins including their 2012 national championship appearance season. Fuck Notre Dame.

    Agreed, fuck Notre Dame.

    (but I'm definitely looking for tickets for [email protected] Dame in a couple years!)

    If you are a Texas A&M fan I don't see how you can't be embarrassed over the last few days. First, Tim Brewster posted this on Twitter:

    To which summoned the wrath of Jalen Ramsey with this:

    So apparently any fair catch called within the 25 yard line will now be placed at the 25.

    Dumbest. Fucking. Rule. Ever.

    Why even kick off anymore? Just start on the 25 after every TD or FG.

    "Safety of players" I'm guessing is their rationale, but yeah, if I'm the coach I'm never letting my players attempt to run it out unless it's at the end of the game and the clock is about to expire.

    Aren't kickoffs the highest % chance of injury in football?

    All it's affecting are perfect sky kickoffs close to the endzone. Anything further and you can take your chances running it out and getting past the 25 anyway

    In a perfect world we wouldn't need it but I prefer a safer version of football to no football

    Yep. Those collisions are usually how guys get spinal injuries

    This is precisely the point. It does take some of the "fun" out of kickoffs, but it probably is a good middle ground between leaving it alone and removing it entirely. So now, 95% of the time people will leave it alone and just fair catch it. But that 5% will still be exciting because somebody either is running it out because they HAVE to take the chance, or there's an onside kick.

    I really doubt you're going to get fair catches that often. Think of how often guys run it out of the end zone now even though the better decision is to kneel it 95% of the time.

    Derp; I misunderstood. OK so this rule change is just to fuck with Urban then. I think it was OSU last year that was always trying to pin people back on the 3 so they had to run it out.
