ACC to Require Players to Attempt to Reach Peaceful Resolution Before Tackling Ballcarriers

GREENSBORO, NC — In further efforts to increase player safety on the field, the ACC will require defensive players to initiate peace talks before making violent tackles on ball carriers. “A violent tackle should be made only after all other options have been exhausted,” said ACC officiating supervisor Doug Rhoads. “We’re encouraging players to talk it out first. If they agree on a spot where the offensive player likely would have been tackled, the player can just take a knee there, and nobody has to get hurt.” Surprisingly, some of the game’s biggest hitters are in full support of the change. “I’ve actually always tried to convince my opponents to give themselves up before I make the tackle,” said South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who delivered perhaps the most memorable hit of the bowl season and is believed to be the inspiration for this drastic rule change. “I didn’t want to knock [Michigan running back] Vincent Smith into a parallel timeline. But after a lengthy 1.7 seconds of talks, he was firm on demanding one more yard. It’s devastating when talks break down, but luckily we were able to minimize civilian casualties in that instance.”
