Saw this article by Andy Staples regarding Schiano's proposal to get rid of the kickoff.
The kickoff lovers also probably won't consider the potentially wild field-position swings that could come from punts out of bounds. Even Intergalactic Pigskin Overlord/private equity firm intern Zoltan Mesko, a great directional punter at Michigan who now plays for the New England Patriots, would struggle to consistently pin opponents deep with unreturnable kicks at that distance. Punts from a team's own 30 typically get returned, or the receiving team gets great field position from a kick out of bounds.
The rest of the article is an interesting read, though I don't know how likely the proposal is. Sadly, it will take someone getting killed before a change like this will happen.
