    NCAA officially changes rules on kickoffs for 2018

    The NCAA just removed the importance of coffin corner punters. Returners will now not be afraid to catch balls close to the end zone. It's a damn shame imo.

    That is not what the rule says. The rule is for kickoffs.

    Correct. Kickoffs only. And guys will still return them. They do today out of the end zone so why wouldn't they at the 10? I do think you'll see more touchbacks but it won't eliminate them.

    How many returners are going to fair catch at the 10 yard line thinking thry cant get a 15 yard return? Kickoffs are different then punts. There is usually nota lot of defenders around a returner when he catches it. Guys still take it out of the endzone despite the 25 yard line touchback. I just dont see this happening a lot. What it does do is take away the skill of kickers that can make returners field the kick inside the 5.

    Correct. I see this mostly having an impact on the kickers that can place it inside the 5 forcing the return. Teams may opt for the touchback instead if having to return a kick outside the hash inside the 5.

    Will this deter teams much from actually returning it? Seems like teams would just return it anyways in most circumstances. I can see fair catching it with little clock left though.

    Will we see more squib kicks? Of course if you position it in the corner, you run the risk of starting at the 40. Or can they still fair catch a squib?

    From what I remember, you cannot call a fair catch on a kick that has already touched the ground which is why onside kicks usually get bounced off the ground right away.
    Wherever you go, there you are.

    I remember we have done it on some punts where the ball has bounced first. Don't recall on kickoffs though.
