Franklin: "I don't want a punt fair caught...ever"

Publish date:

With the new halo rule making it's way back into college football that allows the punt returner 18 inches to catch the ball, James Franklin wants to make it clear that he never wants his punt returners call for a fair catch. Ever.

"We don't want any punts fair caught. I don't want a punt fair caught, ever, when we're here." Franklin explained.

"If they can get six inches, I want them to get six inches. There's a halo rule now again, we should never, in the 25 years that we'll be here we should never fair catch a punt."

Interesting logic.

Franklin also addresses their policy on talking about injuries with a humorous approach in the clip.
