North Carolina football players may face suspensions after off-season NCAA violations

The University of North Carolina pays Fedora $2,290,000 per year to coach at the school, and he has the potential to earn up to $900,000 in bonuses. "I worked closely with Chancellor Folt and Coach Fedora to address this issue from an NCAA, University and Department of Athletics perspective, and we have taken appropriate disciplinary action". "That's what I'm anxious about, and I do believe that if it gets to that point, that our country goes down, too".

"Our game is under attack", Fedora said.

His remarks dismayed some football players, fans and experts. Downplaying the significant vulnerabilities to a person's long-term mental capacity by being a college football player is demeaning to the players he coaches.

And if you wonder how Fedora made that leap, he believes that one of the things that sets America apart from other nations is the fact that we play football here in the States. The NFL conceded two years ago a connection between football and CTE.

ESPN and SEC Network college football broadcaster Paul Finebaum has had some awful and cantankerous takes in the past, but this might be one of the most sensible things he's ever said.

Dilfer tweeted Adelson's Yahoo column - "Association [of football and long term degenerative illness] is not causation", he noted before sharing the link - in which Adelson wrote Fedora was exercising "caution" by not sounding a stronger alarm on the dangers of CTE and waiting for more scientific evidence.

The rate rises, which make borrowing more expensive, are meant to head off uncontrolled price rises as the U.S. economy expands. The Fed has raised rates five times since Trump took office in January 2017, and has penciled in two more hikes for this year.

Let's be crystal clear here; playing football significantly increases the risk a player will experience CTE in their life. And no, if football is changed for the benefit of player safety, it will have zero impact on the country as a whole.

Fedora's possibly inflated sense of the importance of football to the future of America might come from the (also possibly inflated) salaries that football coaches are paid. But there was nothing normal about ACC Media Days on Wednesday.

In a separate interview later, Fedora tried to clarify himself.

Fedora is coming off a 3-9 season in Chapel Hill, and he may be on one of the hottest seats the ACC has to offer this fall.

If Fedora doesn't make UNC great again, he may be taking his war on football to the unemployment line.
