Should College Football Get Rid Of Kickoffs?

Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano wants to eliminate kickoffs in college football, and Andy Staples, of SI.com, thinks he may have a point.

I completely understand the want, and need, for safety, in football.

These are great athletes we’re talking about here. Guys that go 6:3, 240 pounds, who can run a 4.5 40-yard dash.

When you get those kind of athletes, colliding, after a 50-yard running start, it can really be violent.

What I do want to see is more data.

Right now, I say keep the kickoffs in the game. But I’m open to change.
