Bill Connelly, in addition to the work he did on the college football section of Football Outsiders Almanac 2013, also found time to write another book this offseason. Study Hall: College Football, Its Stats and Its Stories is on CreateSpace now, and will hit Amazon later this week. Obviously I am biased as I know Bill and enjoy editing his work thoroughly, but he is as good as it gets in the college football field.
After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
