Football Friday Notebook: NCAA Tweaks Redshirt Rule For D1 Football, Plus D3 Football Captains & More
By NoontimeSports.com (@NoontimeSports)
Happy Friday, everyone!
Let’s kick-start your weekend with some football news and notes from the D3 world to the pros and high schools.
The NCAA recently made some tweaks to its redshirt rules, which should make college football fun to follow this season, as well as a little unpredictable, too.
More on the NCAA redshirt rule change from Sports Illustrated – this will certainly help coaches get first-year players even more ready for future success, both at the college and pro level.
On Thursday, the Maritime (N.Y.) Privateers announced on their Instagram account their captains for the upcoming season. Congrats to Payton Campbell, Liam Bailey and Dean Lynch – best of luck this season, gents!
A feel-good feature from the USA Today on how a school, fatherhood and football connect former Temple University teammates. It may get a little dusty in your room after reading it!
Speaking of the Cowboys, make sure to check-out Charles Robinson‘s piece from Yahoo! Sports – Dallas needs to have a bounce back season, per his report. Otherwise, things could get pretty interesting in Big-D!
Finally, Mike Pereira told PFT Live the following: “If at the end of this year there are more concussions on kickoffs, forget it. It’s gone.” Clock is ticking, NFL rules committee!
