Re: More ACL injuries since rule change?
Yes and no. There are more teams in the NFL/NCAA than ever before, thus giving you more players, more plays, and more injuries. Then you have to add in the media and how easy it is to hear/learn about injuries. You used to only hear about HUGE MAJOR injuries, but now you hear if someone has an ingrown toenail.
Over time, guys may start to adapt and start shooting low instead, but that's an instinct that can't be completely changed over night.
