Bagnoli Weighs in on Tackling

Head Coach Al Bagnoli is strongly endorsing the Ivy League's new policy against tackling in football practice.

On WCBS radio in NYC, he made several statements explaining the policy and calling on high school football programs to do the same.

This is a good policy, especially since everyone is on board. In other words, if there was some kind of advantage to tackling in practice no team will be able to grab that now at the expense of its opponents.

Yay. This is a great rule. There are no benefits to live tackling during in-season practices and there are many detriments. I believe anyone who has played or coached knows this.

Dartmouth gets credit for instituting this policy before anyone else.
