Longer kickoffs good, bad

When North Carolina senior Connor Barth learned he'd be kicking off the 2007 season from the 30-yard line instead of the 35, he grimaced at the change, made last spring by the NCAA. When N.C. State kick returner Darrell Blackman heard about it, he grinned. Those 15 feet might seem a short distance to fans in the stands, but the change is expected to make a huge difference in how kickoffs play out this year. (Raleigh News & Observer)
