Ivy leagues dont tackle at all. They cant afford to lose players in practice. Most FBS schools tackle for scrimmages. Not sure how often they tackle in practice. Its not much if any. Lots of thud during the season along with tackling stations with or without a player. They are not bringing the player down to the ground though. Im sure Dino uses the same approach.I'm saying Dino teaches and allows tackling. You can see it in the clips from the Summer sessions during 11 on 11. I'm also saying that I recall reading one of the issues that came out of the Frost firings was his position on no tackling during Summer sessions. At least that's what I recall, but I'm getting old and tend to forget things. However, there certainly are coaches out there that don't have their players tackle during the year. Didn't a Columbia professor years ago exclaim that tackling during practice was not needed? The media jumped on it and I'm sure some coaches did to.
