There is everybody else’s argument against the player safety defense of the 10-second substitution rule, and then there’s Les Miles’.
“There’s little or no evidence that would say that injury is likely,” Miles said. “Having said that, the incidence of injury in football is 100 percent. That being said, ‘He hurt his hand. Why? Because he was playing football. He hurt his elbow. Why? Because he was playing football.'”
In other words, since sooner or later they’re all gonna get hurt anyway, why worry about the HUNH?
I’d love to hear Bert’s reaction to that.
