    A friend told me about this last night. A high school in Arkansas is changing football convention.

    • Team never punts
    • Team always onside kicks
    It is based on the research of some Harvard professor who says football teams should never punt. In one game they scored 29 points before the other team even went on offense.

    This whole thing is Jeff Fisher's worst nightmare:

    That's intriguing. I'd like to see an NFL team do that for one season... for shots and giggles.

    Some games you'd explode for 60+ points, and other games you'd get beat by 60. Probably more likely the latter unless you have far superior talent.

    I think it would be harder to pull off in the NFL.

    cmon lets be honest....this works in a football mecca where far superior athletes and football players are all on one team and the rest of the teams are decent but not close to them. lets see them do this against a team just as talented as them. in the nfl, no. it wouldn't work, ever.

    Low variance is the most consistent way to win.

    This is the same dynamic of always throwing 50/50 balls to your receivers... Some times you get a SB... Some times you got 9-7 and no playoffs.

    Terrible. I've heard this once and it made me sick.
