After the game Wednesday I ran into an old friend as I was leaving. This gentleman was a long time coach who’s won the big game before more than once. We talked a little about the May WB game. But he pointed out something that I have touched on before and that’s why so many onside kicks in the game nowadays? Also he related that to the number of high scoring games in today’s sixman world. Onside kick results in playing half the field. Less grass to travel more points will be scored. I would like to see stats that support the onside. I’ve seen many of these kicks returned so I’m not sure the ratio to the deep kick returns. That would be an interesting comparison. Maybe the coach and I are just old school but I’d like to see teams travel 60 to 70 yards for a score than I had 35-40.
