Re: Do you think the NCAA new rules about limiting contact in practice will lead to more injuries in games?

This would be a good first step in addressing the rising frequency of injuries in football. A sober approach would be to gradually limit player weight by position. Not a popular thought with many coaches, but a current reality of physics upon contact.

As much as we’d like to think players commit to USU and Logan, majority of the time especially with out of state guys, players commit to the coaches over the program.
For those of us who as players have gone through coaching changes, AK is absolutely spot on.
