    I will stop watching the NFL and the NCAA which I sure will eventually follow along.

    Games would be 28-0 before the other team ever gets the ball...And by other team I mean us.

    One play for a possession? A team that just scored could get two possessions in a row? The hell is wrong with him?

    He is hands down the worst thing to happen to football. Ever.

    Why don't they just give the team the ball at the 20 and call it a day? Why should the team that JUST SCORED get a chance on offense again? ...

    I swear to god..

    The team who just scored has that opportunity now if they try an on-side kick.

    4th-and-15 probably isn't enough.

    The kickoff system now is a waste of time.

    And what's the % of onsides recovered and the % of 3 and 15s completed?

    I dare say the latter happens more easily.

    Agreed. Which is why I said 4th-and-15 probably isn't enough.

    Pretty cool stat: When an onsides kick is expected, there is a 20% success rate. When unexpected, it's 60% (which I thought high).

    Stupid idea. Stupid.

    What happens when a high-powered offense wins the toss, elects to 'kick', but goes for the 4th and 15. Converts & scores. Then goes for the 4th and 15 again, converts & scores... see what i'm getting at? I mean I know it hards to convert 4th and 15s, but once you start adding it in your gameplan and pract'n certain plays for this situation the % of conversions will go up.
