UNC became aware of the potential violations and self-reported them in February.

Fedora also said that football is under attack to the point "the game will be pushed so far from what we know that".

His remarks dismayed some football players, fans and experts. Coaches, administrators, and players from each team in a particular conference will spend several hours fielding questions and speaking to local and national media. Fedora said he believes the CTE data has been put out as fact and it has swayed some people away from football entirely. Still, Fedora seemed to take up a stand on this topic as well by suggesting he does not think it has definitely been proven that playing football causes CTE.

According to an unnamed general, Fedora said, the USA military is the strongest in the world because the United States is the only country that plays football (which, by the way, is not true).

Dilfer tweeted Adelson's Yahoo column - "Association [of football and long term degenerative illness] is not causation", he noted before sharing the link - in which Adelson wrote Fedora was exercising "caution" by not sounding a stronger alarm on the dangers of CTE and waiting for more scientific evidence.

UNC football coach in bizarre scene: Football's decline will kill America

A study released close to a year ago by Boston University's School of Medicine and VA Boston Healthcare System found CTE in 87 percent of football players' brains studied postmortem, including 99 percent of NFL players and 91 percent of college players.

Correlating a change in the dynamics of football to the United States ability to exist is one heck of a reach. After his initial media session at the ACC media day event, Fedora later gathered a handful of selected media members to clarify his comments.

Fedora is coming off a 3-9 season in Chapel Hill, and he may be on one of the hottest seats the ACC has to offer this fall.

Fedora did, however, tell reporters that "tweaking" the sport for "the betterment for the health and safety of players - you're doing a great thing".
