UNC Football excited about addition of Javonte Williams

If football goes down ‘our country will go down too,’ says one high-profile coach

The news followed on the heels of head coach Larry Fedora's CTE-denial rant about football being under attack while linking the game to USA military superiority.

"Our game is under attack", Fedora told reporters at UNC media day, per The Athletic's Nicole Auerbach.

Fedora said he's not convinced a link between chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, and football has been proven, according to CNN affiliate WTVD.

"I fear the game will be pushed so far to one extreme that you won't recognize the game 10 years from now". "That's what I'm anxious about, and I do believe that if it gets to that point, that our country goes down, too".

We've heard takes about football being in decline before.

Kevin Anderson and John Isner deliver a match for the ages
Djokovic was a modest +650 to win the tournament, while Anderson was a sizable underdog at +6600 according to OddsShark.com . Speaking after his semi-final, Anderson said it was "not going to be easy" to play again so soon after an exhausting match.

"The lessons that you learn in the game of football relate to everything that's gonna happen in the rest of your life".

The head coach of North Carolina since 2012, Fedora has been around the college game for over a quarter century. "I think in some ways we're struggling more right now than we ever have".

Suspensions pend on the results of the NCAA investigation, those Tar Heel players involved could be suspended for a game or more.

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. "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".

And if it gets any safer, apparently, our national security is at stake.
