Multiple UNC football players could face suspensions for NCAA violations

UNC football coach in bizarre scene Football’s decline will kill America

"And I do believe that if it gets to that point, that our country goes down, too", he said.

Fedora decried an increased connection drawn by medical researchers between tackle football and degenerative brain disease, and said the future of the United States is tied to the preservation of football as we know it.

Fedora said he was concerned with how the idea that football concussions lead to chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, has and will affect people's perception of the sport.

Fedora also said he once asked a three-star general what makes the U.S. military the best in the world. 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.

It may be unwise to suggest there is a stone-cold fact that indisputably links football to CTE, but more and more research is connecting the dots fairly strongly.

13 sleeper picks to win at the Open Championship this weekend
SPIETH STARTS STRONG: Defending champion Jordan Spieth birdied two of his first four holes and was 2 under through eight. The noise of that nine iron is Oberholser's abiding memory of playing with Rory McIlroy at the 2007 Open at Carnoustie.

A study previous year found that all but one of 111 brains of former National Football League players found CTE.

Conference football media days are usually pretty tame.

What's clear here is that Fedora is not happy about how football has evolved.

Wait, the future of the United States depends on football? And no, if football is changed for the benefit of player safety, it will have zero impact on the country as a whole. But rather than change one word in his statement to make himself look better, Fedora held firm with his comments. Coach Fedora says they will use that to their advantage when handling Williams.
