Uniform injury report supported by college football schools

Uniform injury report supported by college football schools

A study released Monday by a national athletic directors organization says more than half of the major U.S. collegiate football schools are supportive of a uniform injury report in college sports. An additional 23 percent said they were neutral on this issue.

The LEAD1 Association found that 53 percent of schools responding would agree or strongly agree that “college sports should move towards a more uniform injury reporting approach.”

Only 24 percent said they disagreed or strongly disagreed.

Approximately 100 of the 130 Football Bowl Subdivision responded to LEAD1’s phone survey. LEAD1 would not release the individual responses from schools.

For handicappers, most of whom advocate such a report to maintain transparency in wagering, the uniform injury report continues to be one of the hottest topics in college sports wagering since Nevada-style sports wagering became available to individual states in May after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the law banning it.
