New Rules by NCAA

Postby armyhockeyfan » Sun Apr 15, 2018 8:50 pm

It looks like the NCAA is making steps toward removing the kickoff from football. If you scroll you will see other new rules. One says that players cannot block below the waist beyond 5 yards of the line of scrimmage. Army's offense seems to have a lot of the those types of blocks. Does anyone think this will have a notable effect on Army's offense?

Seems like it is just the o-line that blocks like that at the line of scrimmage. Don’t think it should impact much if at all.

Think we’d hear coaches complaining if they thought it would hurt them.

Can't the damn NCAA stay out of eliminating the kickoff? The kickoff is the most exciting play in the game. Start from the 20-25, the game becomes like a scrimmage or a glorified version of the spring game which is a joke in the first place.
It 'aint worth the"'price" of free admission.

You want player safety? Eliminate the helmet of today which is a weapon, go back to leather helmets and teach the players how to tackle without using the head as a spear.
You want radical helmet rules? Bring back leather.
Go ahead and laugh but I believe that would work.
What comes around, goes around.
