While reading a recent copy of Sports Illustrated, I learned about the sport of Sprint Football. This is the first time I have ever heard of such a thing. After I a quick Google search, I found that the Collegiate Sprint Football League (or CSFL) has a website that explains everything. I recommend checking it out.
For more, visit SprintFootball.com
Earlier today someone sent me the following article in response to this post about the CSFL – Saban on no-huddle offense: ‘Is this what we want football to be?’ (College Football Talk, NBCSports.com)]
I found it interesting lighter players would make this kind of “sprint football” likely much safer than normal college football. All the same, regular football is becoming more and more an all-out sprint affair, which Nick Saban says makes the game more dangerous: http://collegefootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/10/03/saban-on-no-huddle-offense-is-this-what-we-want-football-to-be/
Very true! Its getting harder to argue that the “normal” game isn’t getting faster and faster.
I have no clue how much safer the CSFL is, but I will take Saban’s word for it on whether speed is making the game of football more dangerous.
Thanks for the link. I appreciate it.
