Reducing tackling in practice has been happening across all levels of football for awhile now. This is the NFL’s answer to not having an answer for all the concussions. This sport has risk, no doubt. These guys know what they are signing up for. I just see a head injury every week with Lehigh. I dont see the same in any other football game I watch. Something is wrong somewhere. Everybody is pointing fingers at each other and I am sure bad tackling isn’t being taught at practice…hell, we don’t tackle anybody!!!The middle of our defense could wear pasties and a g-string and it wouldn’t matter. When the rb’s aren’t touched until 15 yards up field I dont think reduced tackling in practice has anything to do with the issue. I just hope somebody looks into the head injury issue with Lehigh players…
