Multiple UNC football players could face suspensions for NCAA violations

University of North Carolina head football coach Larry Fedora believes America will struggle if people stop learning the life lessons that come from playing football, according to USA Today. He also suggested there is no connection to playing football and CTE.

"I've known Larry Fedora to be an unusually bright guy, but he came off utterly stupid here and I think that's really sad. and I'm serious in terms of other coaches need to come out and step away from this".

Chris Nowinski, chief executive of the Concussion Legacy Foundation, a former Harvard defensive tackle and a doctor of behavioral neuroscience, told The Washington Post that Fedora's comments were "a unsafe place to be". It's clear that Fedora does not have his player's interest in mind.

But Fedora has his backers, among them Fox NFL analyst Mark Schlereth and columnist Jason Whitlock, former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer and Yahoo Sports columnist Eric Adelson. It's because the U.S.is the only country that plays football, the general replied, per Fedora.

All the above Indian films put together couldn't able to collect what Ant-Man and the Wasp did at the Indian box-office. Fans have been conjecturing, ever since, how will Avengers 4 reverse its predecessor's catastrophic events.


As you probably expect by now, Fedora also doesn't think football causes CTE. And the fact he was arrogant enough to say it publicly in defense of some ridiculous machismo ethic that permeates the sport of football means he has crossed the line from responsibility into non-reality and is no longer fit for the job he now has. "At least, my opinion".

Bubba Cunningham, director of athletics at UNC, issued a statement Wednesday evening, saying: "When we became aware of a situation within the football program, we self-reported what the NCAA deemed to be a secondary violation".

Whitlock later in the program said, "I think the CTE thing is exaggerated". But I don't understand how you can talk about this being bad for the country. And players can take as many as 60-plus hits in a game, researchers found.

Connections between football and CTE include a study published last year by the American Medical Association last year, which diagnosed CTE in 99 percent of deceased NFL players' brains.
