While Wednesday afternoon's news isn't as troubling or salacious as Fedora's freaky press conference, it is another black eye for the program that has been in the spotlight for the wrong reasons in recent years.

"I fear that the game will be pushed so far from what we know that we won't recognize it 10 years from now", Fedora said. "There is no doubt in my mind".

"The lessons that you learn in the game of football relate to everything that's gonna happen in the rest of your life".

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

Nicole Auerbach, a reporter for The Athletic, reported that Fedora said a member of the armed forces told him our military is so great because so many of its members played football growing up. "And if you stop learning, you're gonna struggle", said Fedora, UNC's head coach since 2012. "My understanding is that repeated blows to the head cause it, so I'm assuming that every sport we have, football included, could be a problem with that as long as you've got any kind of contact". "That doesn't diminish the fact that the game is still safer than it's ever been because we continue to tweak the game to try to make it safer for our players".

Fedora's rant was stemmed by the safety measures taken to combat the very real risk of degenerative brain disease. Are there chances for concussions?

In a study published past year, CTE was found in 99% of deceased National Football League players' brains that were donated to scientific research.
