Not sure you'll see teams desperately moving up for a QB this year when the QB class next year is expected to be really, really good. The draft of 2020 will likely have Tua Tagovailoa, Justin Herbert, Jake Fromm, Jacob Eason, Joe Burrow, Jalen Hurts, etc.

Maybe not. Keep in mind that he blew out the other ACL the year he enrolled at Auburn. It's nothing short of a miracle that Dean is where he is today. Most players don't come back at that level, if at all, from that many ACL tears.
If the OSU docs thought he was possibly a danger to himself and a liability to the team by continuing, then we have to trust their judgement and decision.

Remember, hindsight is always 20/20.

I don't like the 1 "foot" (or other body part) in bounds for a completed catch - would rather see it like the NFL where 2 "feet" must be in bounds.
I also wish the 'knee down = play is over' rule was like the NFL, where the player must be touched or down by contact to end the play.
I don't like the fair catches on kickoffs anywhere inside the 25 rule. It's awful. Abolish it.
Finally - and I've said this since the beginning - I want an 8 team playoff with 1 team from each P5 conference, 2 teams from non-P5 conferences, and 1 team at large from any conference or independent. Top 4 seeds get home field advantage.

It's not crazy. The game has changed significantly in the last 5 years.

Think about all of the changes to the rules for kickoffs. There are far fewer returns now due to the fair catch rules, moving the kickoff spot, etc.

As for punts, the directional rugby punt is now being used more to limit or eliminate the number of returns, thus avoiding the possibility of a big play.
