Pussification of America lives.
Off the first bounce but not the second. New rule this year. Agree...it's total crap. Pretty much does away with the onsides kick.
The onside kick is one of the more dangerous situations in football. The person who has to jump in the air to catch it will absolutely get creamed because he's always defenseless.
Call me what you want, but I think it's a good rule in CFB. Remember, these are "students" and not all of these kids are going to have a pro career. Think about these kids who lives are ruined because they're paralyzed and can't go out and get a normal job and live a normal life like all of you fans can.
They can call a fair catch on a ball that's just kicked up off the tee, too, right? So the only way NOT to call a fair catch is one balls that stay on the ground... so basically, a bunch of guys diving low to the ground head first for the ball. That sounds way safer than a popped-up ball.
