  • UNC football coach in bizarre scene: Football's decline will kill America

"Our game is under attack", Fedora suggested when discussing new rules being implemented into the game with the focus on improving the safety of players. "And I do believe that if it gets to that point, that our country goes down, too", he said.

Some of what Fedora said is not an original thought.

It's a time for players and coaches to list the reasons for optimism in the fall. Fedora, though, told reporters in the breakout session that he wasn't convinced that football even caused CTE, despite all evidence and science to the contrary.

Fedora said today that he thinks the Tar Heels are a much more experienced team than a year ago while also bringing in new stars.

Last year, a Journal of the American Medical Association study revealed that 110 of 111 examined brains of deceased football players had CTE. The link between playing football and CTE has been strong enough to have the NFL begin modifying its procedures and regulations, and more and more colleges and conferences are addressing these concerns as well. It's clear that Fedora does not have his player's interest in mind. There is no disputing that.


If I had a son who was a P5 football prospect, I would immediately take UNC off my list.

Wait, the future of the United States depends on football?

For those curious, it takes about two hours for the light to click on after saying something controversial at a media event, as Larry Fedora discovered here Wednesday at the ACC Kickoff. But rather than change one word in his statement to make himself look better, Fedora held firm with his comments.

Fedora is not the hot coaching prospect he once was.
