Theodore asseverates the coaches and athletic directors to sign a pledge. Because the belligerence continued that fall, college presidents beyond the nations made a clamor for enjoinment of the game. Theodore; as a result, demanded an arrangement among coaches, athletic directors, and umpires on the field. Since Theodore Roosevelt prevailed upon merging two committees into one, they reformed to cogitate the rule changes that saved football; thus, structuring The National Collegiate Athletic Association or NCAA. When another season began in the fall of 1906, the president was titillated.
FOOTBALL FOOTBALL. The game of American football as played today by high school, college, and professional teams grew out of rugby-style football which in the mid-1870s replaced a largely kicking game known as association football. Although initially played on village greens and on college fields, the first intercollegiate game took place on 6 November 1869 when Rutgers defeated Princeton 6–4 in a soccer-style game. Five years later, Montreal's McGill University playing at Harvard introduced rugby football, which would be rapidly adopted by eastern teams. Collegiate Development For the first fifty years of football, college teams enjoyed a virtual monopoly of what they called the gridiron (the term applied to the football
Spartans valued military power. For instance, “Their whole lives were about military training even after 30 the Spartan boys were required to serve the military until they were 60” (Document 2). This statement from the document shows that Sparta takes

Part I: The history behind the great American sport, football, is a very important subject to me as I have played the game since I was eight. As I continued playing while getting older, leagues got more competitive and injury seemed to be more prone to some than most. I can’t even recall the amount of times the game has been stopped due to someone getting the wind knocked out of them, head-to-head collisions, sometimes even broken bones. The slide about rules evolution within the College Football realm resonated with me due to the fact that during this time football was being played, people were dying from injuries and the numbers of deaths were only rising. In 1905, eighteen players died and in 1908, that number increased to thirty-three.
“See this is like a team here today.” Or “There’s always the next time the ball’s going to snap.” (pg 4)Next he goes,” This game, this game of life.” (pg 4). Each of these quotes and the analogy that he uses for football is useful as they can truly understand what exactly he is talking about by thinking of football and how that relates to life. Since these are college students, sports are usually a noticeable force on campus. Most of the rhetorical strategies used in the article are effective as he uses a combination of the different policies to establish his credibility as a speaker. Tomlin’s use of pathos and ethos were extremely noticeable in the speech, while the examples of logos could use some work.
Therefore, regarding the education in Sparta, the weaknesses outweighed the strength because the Spartan’s didn’t value family morals, the basics of reading and writing were taught, and the upbringing of Spartan boys was cruel and painful. The only focus to the Spartan was war and violence instead of family morals. At the age of seven, a young boy is removed from his family
Football for males began a long time ago and has continued to grow and develop because of the amount of backing and funding it has received over the years by different federations: the contemporary history of the world 's favourite game spans more than 100 years. It all began in 1863 in England, when rugby football and association football branched off on their different courses and the Football Association in England was formed - becoming the sport 's first governing body (FIFA 2018). On the other hand, women’s football has a long history where they have fought for their freedom to play football. Boxing day, 1920 saw the biggest number of spectators attend a game with a crowd of 53,000 inside Goodison park and many more locked outside (Association, n.d.). Despite this in 1921, the FA announced that football was unsuitable for women (Jones and Edwards 2013), and even after the success and popularity of women’s football during the First World War, the FA Council instructed its member clubs to stop any female players from using officially sanctioned Football League grounds (Williams and Woodhouse 1991; Williams 2003).
It can be argued that the necessity to have readily available college bound population goes back as far as shortly after the end of the civil war when Charles W. Elliot first held the presidential office over Harvard University. Elliot held the longest presidency at Harvard, his tenure spanned between 1869 and 1909 upon his retirement. Initially, Elliot did not favor support for public education mainly because of poor student college-readiness and Harvard’s feeder system was made up of private college preparatory schools. Interestingly, after growing competition in recruiting students for new institutions such as Stanford, Cornell, MIT amongst others Elliot revisited his position (Christensen, 2011). His concerns for about public education lead him to hold regular faculty assemblies between Harvard faculty and high school faculty in which he proposed for high schools to adopt a Harvard developed curriculum to better prepare students for post-secondary education.
