Semi-perfect off season post

Recommended Posts

Why do footballs used "in the college game" have stripes on them?  Watching the '69 Texas vs. Arkansas game for the umpteenth time, I noticed the balls did not have the white stripes, but they do now.  As a result, just about every pass looks a little wobbly on tv.

Why do college footballs have white stripes?

Quote

The Traditional Football

The college football is the older, more traditional ball. Back in the mid-1920s, every football was made with white stripes. Then, in 1941, the NFL switched the color of the ball to white with black stripes for visibility during night games, according to Rick Walls, an Eastern Region Coordinator for the National Football Foundation, in an ESPN Magazine publication. As stadium lighting improved, the NFL began to seek alternative football colors, notes Walls. Wilson, the company that supplies the NFL and most colleges with their footballs, then made a prototype without stripes. Since night-game visibility wasn't an issue, the NFL chose to use the stripe-less ball to distinguish itself from the business of NCAA football.

Member back in the 80's it was common to see a "the duke" NFL ball with stripes on it for HS and College before Wilson came out with the 1001

The mug is round. The jar is round. They should call it Roundtine.

You fucking heretic! NCAA football is not a business! NCAA involvement in sports is based on the purest of motives, not on any disgusting profit. Take your lies to some other forum, sir. Fie, sir, fie!

It’s either perfect or it’s not. I don’t think anything can be semi-perfect.

Maybe not semi-perfect, but you gotta admire the intentions. Close enough.

I always knew Steel Shank had a singular drive for snatch, but never knew that meant he didn't even need her to have a face to be smoking hot.

I may not have the formal education that you guys have. I may not have your fancy degrees. My vocabulary may not be up to your level. 

 

I just wanted to make that clear.

I used to eat that when I was a kid. Underrated breakfast choice.
