I was skeptical at first, but I think I like this plan.

Rather than kicking the ball off a tee, the scoring team would get the ball on its own 30-yard line in a 4th-and-15 scenario. They could elect to punt, or they would have the option to go for it and keep possession with a successful conversion.

Think of how interesting the games would be.  No more onside kicks.

What would replace the phrase "Kickoff is at 1pm"?

not sure if this is a joke by Dog, and while its radical, i like the idea. Maybe they can try slowing like allowing each team to do that once a game.

Here's a good idea, how about they fix these shit overtime rules before even worrying about this? The college OT system is so much better than this crap. It would drive the bookies nuts, I'm sure.

its not a horrible idea, but they need to find out the success rate of an onside
kick, then try to match it with a 4th and X rate.  getting 15 yards on 1 play
seems a lot easier than an onsides kick.  make it 4th and 20.  or 25.

My guess is that there are probably more successful onside kicks than there are 4th and 15 conversions.
