If Greg Schiano gets his way, then start training your son to punt
Perhaps inspired by the Eric LeGrand situation, Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano believes he has a better and much safer alternative for kick-offs.
According to Star-Ledger, Schiano’s thinking is:
Replace all kickoffs with a punting situation, including after the opening coin toss and to start the second half. So, as an example, when Team A scores a touchdown, it immediately gets the ball back on a fourth and 15 from its own 30-yard line.
It can punt it back to Team B — the most likely outcome and a safer play since the bigger collisions usually happen on kickoffs.
Or it can line up and go for the first down, essentially replacing an onside kick with an offensive play that would require more skill than luck.
This makes us wonder if all it’s going to take is one more significant injury, maybe to a well-known player, and kick-offs are done.
If you have a ten year-old son, make sure he is punting. Punters are going to become a premium for college coaches. In reality, punters will become so valuable that coaches will likely put two punters on scholarship.
After college, you can betr the average NFL salary for a punter will nearly double the current earnings.
