I am disappointed, but not surprised, to see that the NCAA Rules Committee is recommending that kickoffs be moved to the 35 yard-line and that kick-coverage defenders be limited to a 5-yard running start. http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/7560237/ncaa-proposes-moving-kickoffs-30-35
I really don't see the logic in this. If you think kickoffs are too dangerous, then just have the offense start from the 20. Kicking off from the 35 just cuts down on the number of kick returns--it doesn't make the returns that actually occur any safer.
