Abolishing kickoffs would lead to safer, more interesting games

18

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.
