College football

(Redirected from College Football) A college football game between Colorado State University and the Air Force Academy.

College football was the venue through which American football first gained popularity in the United States. College football remains extremely popular today among students, alumni, and other fans of the sport.

History

A college football game between Texas Tech University and the U.S. Naval Academy.

The first game played between teams representing different colleges or universities was played on November 6, 1869 between Rutgers University and Princeton University, at College Field (now the site of the College Avenue Gymnasium), New Brunswick, New Jersey. Rutgers won, by a score of 6 to 4. As the score would seemingly indicate, the game bore little resemblance to the game of today. The rules of that game were the 1863 rules of the English Football Association, the basis of the modern form of soccer.

The development of the American game can be traced to a meeting between the Harvard University and McGill University football teams in 1874. The two teams were used to playing different brands of football — the McGill team played a rugby-style game, while Harvard played a soccer-style game. The teams agreed to play under compromise rules, and from this meeting the game of football began to evolve in both the United States and Canada.

The game increased in popularity through the remainder of the 19th century. It also became increasingly violent. President Theodore Roosevelt threatened, in 1906, to ban the sport following a series of player deaths from injuries suffered during games. The response to this was the formation of what became the National Collegiate Athletic Association, which set rules governing the sport. One of the rules changes to emerge from this attempt at alleviating the violence of the sport was the introduction of the forward pass. Another was the banning of "mass momentum" plays (many of which, like the infamous "flying wedge", were sometimes literally deadly).

Prior to the founding of the National Football League, and for a few decades thereafter, college football was the predominant venue for American football. Innovations in strategy and style of play originated in college football and spread to the pro game gradually. It was not until the post-World War II era that the pro game achieved ascendancy in the eyes of the average American sports fan.

The season schedule

Division 1A college football begins two to three weeks earlier than the NFL, towards the end of August. Until 2003, the regular season was officially ushered in by the Kickoff Classic, held in recent years in New Jersey (although other pre-season games such as the Eddie Robinson Classic and the Pigskin Classic have also been played), but recent NCAA policy changes have eliminated some of these games, and so the season now largely starts out with regular games. The regular season then continues through early December (generally ending with the annual Army-Navy Game).

The college post-season is ushered in by the annual presentation of the Heisman Trophy Award, considered the most prestigious award in all of college football, given to the top player of the year as determined by a panel consisting of media voters and former winners of the award. This is then followed by a series of bowl games that showcase (usually) the top college team in a particular conference, as well as the consensus "national champion", which is determined not by a true playoff, but by a controversial confederation of voters, broadcast networks, bowls and conferences known as the Bowl Championship Series. A series of all-star bowl games round out the season for the balance of January, including the East-West Shrine Game, the Senior Bowl (for many decades the official final game of the season), the Hula Bowl, and the Gridiron Classic (in recent years, the Hula and Gridiron have alternated as the final game of the season).

In spring 2005, the NCAA ruled that teams could schedule 12 regular-season games beginning in the 2006 season. This decision was met with some criticism, as some teams, such as Alabama and Auburn, who traditionally have a bye week on Thanksgiving weekend, will have to play eight games consecutively some seasons.

. I try to live by the laws, but it seems like I'm being set up." Full Story (http://www.fmqb.com/Article.asp?id=77069). Please see NCAA football bowl games, 2004-05. I'm a pretty honest guy. Last season played in parentheses. I'm very, very clear on that. This decision was met with some criticism, as some teams, such as Alabama and Auburn, who traditionally have a bye week on Thanksgiving weekend, will have to play eight games consecutively some seasons. FMQB.com (http://www.fmqb.com) quoted Stern as saying about his current employer, "They're holding me to the contract and I'm afraid to break the contract, because I don't want to ever do anything illegal or wrong.

In spring 2005, the NCAA ruled that teams could schedule 12 regular-season games beginning in the 2006 season. House Judiciary Committee Chairman James Sensenbrenner Jr.'s recommendation. A series of all-star bowl games round out the season for the balance of January, including the East-West Shrine Game, the Senior Bowl (for many decades the official final game of the season), the Hula Bowl, and the Gridiron Classic (in recent years, the Hula and Gridiron have alternated as the final game of the season). On April 6, 2005, Stern pleaded on-air for Infinity Broadcasting to let him out of his contract, citing the reason of possible prosecution as per U.S. This is then followed by a series of bowl games that showcase (usually) the top college team in a particular conference, as well as the consensus "national champion", which is determined not by a true playoff, but by a controversial confederation of voters, broadcast networks, bowls and conferences known as the Bowl Championship Series. Like I'm going to pay 'em,", which he publicly stated on his show. The college post-season is ushered in by the annual presentation of the Heisman Trophy Award, considered the most prestigious award in all of college football, given to the top player of the year as determined by a panel consisting of media voters and former winners of the award. Stern's response was, "Keep sending me bills.

The regular season then continues through early December (generally ending with the annual Army-Navy Game). In one incident, Farid Suleman of Citadel broadcasting has gone so far as to have billed Stern $200,000 for the plugs he's given Sirius on his show. Until 2003, the regular season was officially ushered in by the Kickoff Classic, held in recent years in New Jersey (although other pre-season games such as the Eddie Robinson Classic and the Pigskin Classic have also been played), but recent NCAA policy changes have eliminated some of these games, and so the season now largely starts out with regular games. His impending move to Sirius has resulted in some radio stations censoring him every time he mentions the words "Sirius" or "satellite radio". Division 1A college football begins two to three weeks earlier than the NFL, towards the end of August. Stern even held a rally in New York where he gave out coupons for free or discounted Sirius equipment. It was not until the post-World War II era that the pro game achieved ascendancy in the eyes of the average American sports fan. This move has been met with much controversy, as Stern has been talking about his move to Sirius on his show, even telling listeners how to purchase Sirius equipment and subscriptions.

Innovations in strategy and style of play originated in college football and spread to the pro game gradually. In addition, the deal would also enable Stern to program two additional Sirius channels, one of which would be available at an extra charge to subscribers. Prior to the founding of the National Football League, and for a few decades thereafter, college football was the predominant venue for American football. On October 6, 2004, Stern announced on his show that he has signed a five year, $500 million deal with the satellite radio service Sirius. The deal, which takes effect on January 1, 2006, would enable Stern to broadcast his show without, as of present, the content restrictions imposed by the FCC. Another was the banning of "mass momentum" plays (many of which, like the infamous "flying wedge", were sometimes literally deadly). Stern said "Bush being born again is the source of Bush forcing his morals on this country, he's ruining America." Stern also said that "Bush needs to stop talking to Jesus.". One of the rules changes to emerge from this attempt at alleviating the violence of the sport was the introduction of the forward pass. Incidentally, President Bush's religious beliefs were one of the reasons Stern became so opposed to him.

The response to this was the formation of what became the National Collegiate Athletic Association, which set rules governing the sport. At one point Stern actually said that "Mel Gibson makes Hitler look like Gandhi". President Theodore Roosevelt threatened, in 1906, to ban the sport following a series of player deaths from injuries suffered during games. He called the film a "kook festival for a robotic freak audience" and even linked his radio suspension to the film, claiming that it was causing a "religious frenzy" and that anyone who goes to see the movie is "stupid and ignorant". It also became increasingly violent. Throughout the Spring of 2004, Stern was a very vocal and staunch critic of Mel Gibson and his religious epic, The Passion of the Christ. The game increased in popularity through the remainder of the 19th century. Here, as is often typical with Stern, his return was greeted with controversy as the Miami Dolphins threatened to revoke their broadcast deal with the station in question if the station did not fire him.

The teams agreed to play under compromise rules, and from this meeting the game of football began to evolve in both the United States and Canada. In late August, he returned to a fifth market, Miami, on an independent station. The two teams were used to playing different brands of football — the McGill team played a rugby-style game, while Harvard played a soccer-style game. However, on July 19, Stern returned to four of the six markets Clear Channel booted him off of, and added five new ones to the roster — this time on Infinity-owned stations. The development of the American game can be traced to a meeting between the Harvard University and McGill University football teams in 1874. On April 8, 2004, Clear Channel Communications announced it would "permanently terminate" its relationship with the shock jock [2] (http://clearchannel.com/Corporate/PressReleases/2004/20040408_Stern.pdf) after being fined $500,000 by the FCC. The rules of that game were the 1863 rules of the English Football Association, the basis of the modern form of soccer. Stern has consistently claimed the move is an attempt by Jay Leno to steal ideas from Howard's show.

As the score would seemingly indicate, the game bore little resemblance to the game of today. On February 27 of 2004, long-time Stern show regular John Melendez left the show to become the on-air announcer for The Tonight Show. Rutgers won, by a score of 6 to 4. She won and kept her promise, although one of her successors, Democrat Jim McGreevey, later claimed impropriety by Whitman and revoked the "honor.". The first game played between teams representing different colleges or universities was played on November 6, 1869 between Rutgers University and Princeton University, at College Field (now the site of the College Avenue Gymnasium), New Brunswick, New Jersey. In an on-air stunt, Stern promised then-gubernatorial candidate Christine Todd Whitman of New Jersey that he would endorse her candidacy if she promised to name a rest stop on the New Jersey Turnpike after him if she were elected. College football remains extremely popular today among students, alumni, and other fans of the sport. This is only the latest in a long string of political endorsements Stern has made, having earlier supported former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, among others.

College football was the venue through which American football first gained popularity in the United States. presidential campaign, and urged his listeners to vote for him. NCAA football bowl games, 2004-05. troops into Iraq, he turned against him, as he did Bill Clinton, because neither, as he has put it, got "the FCC off my back." He endorsed John Kerry in the 2004 U.S. Bowl Championship Series. It should be noted that Stern was one of the few celebrities who publicly supported Bush sending U.S. Doak Walker Award. Bush, [1] (http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/business/20040408-1342-fcc-howardstern.html).

Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. Because Clear Channel and some of its executives have donated over $200,000 (http://www.opensecrets.org/softmoney/softcomp2.asp?txtName=Clear+Channel+Communications&txtUltOrg=y&txtSort=name&txtCycle=2002) to the Republican Party, Stern claims the company was trying to penalize him for his harsh criticisms of President George W. Jim Thorpe Award. This is considered to be part of a wide-ranging backlash against obscenity triggered by the Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show controversy. Mosi Tatupu Award. Clear Channel president John Hogan said, "Clear Channel drew a line in the sand today with regard to protecting our listeners from indecent content, and Howard Stern's show blew right through it...it was vulgar, offensive and insulting, not just to women and African-Americans but to anyone with a sense of common decency." The move came only a day after Clear Channel fired Bubba the Love Sponge for similar reasons. Dave Rimington Trophy. The show in question featured Rick Salomon, whose claims to fame include a publicly released home video showing him having sex with Paris Hilton. During this broadcast Stern held, would could be considered, a sexually-provocative and racially insensitive interview with Soloman, asking him graphic questions about anal sex and making light of a caller's use of the word "nigger".

Walter Payton Award. On February 25, 2004, Clear Channel Communications "indefinitely suspended" him from six markets because of alleged indecency involving sexual and racist dialogue during his show. Outland Trophy. Stern, his supporters note, has not gone out of his way to offend the general public in this manner. Davey O'Brien Award. In 2002 fellow Infinity Broadcasting Corporation jocks Opie and Anthony had their nationally syndicated WNEW-FM "extreme talk" show cancelled after they encouraged a couple to engage in sexual intercourse at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City, then airing a running commentary of the act on their show. Bronko Nagurski Trophy. (He informed listeners early in 2004 that the ABC television network was in talks with him to produce an interview special.) His popularity has given rise to a number of imitation "shock jocks" who attempt to outdo Stern in terms of offensiveness and rudeness, but these imitators have found themselves with more troubles to worry about than listener ratings.

Maxwell Award. Despite the provocative content of Stern's show—or perhaps because of it—many listeners and critics consider Stern to be a talented on-air personality and formidable interviewer. Manning Award. Stern was a producer for the TV series Son of the Beach. Lombardi Award. In 2002, Stern's production company Howard Stern Productions acquired the rights to the 1982 movie Porky's and the 1979 movie Rock 'n' Roll High School. Harlon Hill Trophy. This reinforced his long-held belief that there is a bias against him in the mainstream media.

Heisman Trophy. He had been on the air the whole time without any positive reaction. Lou Groza Award. As other comedy performers like David Letterman and Jon Stewart later returned to the air, many with emotionally-charged monologues, Stern was furious at the glowing response they received in the press. Grantland Rice Award. The show had a somewhat subdued tone, with many listeners calling in to share their own stories of survival or personal loss. Gagliardi Trophy. Stern and the rest of the cast/crew continued to broadcast over the subsequent days following the disaster.

Dick Butkus Award. Mr. Buck Buchanan Award. Armstrong was the notable exception, as he left the city immediately and refused to return for several days. Fred Biletnikoff Award. Crew member K.C. Chuck Bednarik Award. His live reporting was the first news of the incident for many East Coast residents.

College Football All-America Teams: originally selected by Walter Camp. Howard Stern was on the air in his New York City studio during the September 11, 2001 attacks and stayed on the air with his cast/crew while many other broadcasters fled the city. Shrine Bowl - Little Rock, Arkansas (1948). After auditioning himself, it was eventually announced that comedian Artie Lange was the permanent replacement. Seattle Bowl - Seattle, Washington (2001 -2002). Over the next several months, various comedians auditioned in the "Jackie Chair" for the job. San Diego East-West Christmas Classic - San Diego, California (1921 - 1922). It was officially announced on March 5, 2001 that longtime show regular Jackie "The Jokeman" Martling had left the radio show after failed contract negotiations.

Salad Bowl - Phoenix, Arizona (1948 - 1952). The number of commercials aired during his radio show has greatly increased from the 1980s to the present. Raisin Bowl - Fresno, California (1946 - 1949). Both stations cancelled Stern's show in 2000 after frequent listener complaints to the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council and the CRTC; for most of the time that the stations did air Stern's program, they were required to monitor the show for offensive content through the use of broadcast delays. Presidential Cup Bowl - College Park, Maryland (1950). Also in 1997, Stern's show aired for the first time in Canada, appearing on CILQ in Toronto and CHOM in Montreal. Pasadena Bowl - Pasadena, California (1967 - 1971). Stern did not apologize for his words but instead argued that his comments were an attempt to figure out what was wrong with the two attackers.

Oil Bowl - Houston, Texas (1946 - 1947). His April 21, 1999 show drew angry criticism and official "censure" from the Colorado State Legislature for his comment regarding the motives of the two male students who murdered 12 classmates and one teacher in the Columbine High School massacre in Colorado:. Oahu Classic - Honolulu, Hawaii (1998 - 2000). On January 15, 1998 Lance Carvin, who had been stalking Stern, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for threatening to kill Stern and his family. Mercy Bowl - Los Angeles, California (1961; 1971). Being a personality that most people either love or hate, he has had his share of stalkers and death threats. Los Angeles Christmas Festival - Los Angeles, California (1924). As of 2005, this project has not even begun pre-production.

Harbor Bowl - San Diego, California (1947 - 1949). He had also announced plans for a film provisionally titled The Adventures of Fartman based on a character created for his appearance at the MTV Video/Music Awards. Great Lakes Bowl - Cleveland, Ohio (1947). The movie did moderately well at box offices and in video release, garnering a total of over $60 million. Gotham Bowl - New York, New York (1961 - 1962). In 1997, Stern's autobiographical book, Private Parts, was adapted to film. Garden State Bowl - East Rutherford, New Jersey (1978 - 1981). He also made comments that were considered racist by many people, such as "Alvin and the Chipmunks have more soul", and "Spanish people have the worst taste in music...they have no depth." After pressure from his radio station, Stern gave an on-air apology a week later in Spanish.

Freedom Bowl - Anaheim, California (1984 - 1994). In March of 1995, one day before the funeral of slain Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla, Stern played the sounds of gunshots in the background over some of her music. Fort Worth Classic - Fort Worth, Texas (1921). He subsequently withdrew his candidacy because he did not want to comply with the financial disclosure requirements for candidates. Dixie Classic - Dallas, Texas (1922, 1925, 1934). Although he legally qualified for the office and campaigned for a time after his nomination, many viewed the run for office as nothing more than a publicity stunt. Dixie Bowl - Birmingham, Alabama (1948 - 1949). In 1994, Stern embarked on a political campaign for Governor of New York, formally announcing his candidacy under the Libertarian Party ticket.

Delta Bowl - Memphis, Tennessee (1948 - 1949). In 1992, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) fined Infinity Broadcasting $600,000 after Stern discussed masturbating to a picture of Aunt Jemima. Cherry Bowl - Pontiac, Michigan (1984 - 1985). The stations are not allowed to stream the show over the internet. Camellia Bowl - Lafayette, Louisiana (1948). (27 owned by Infinity Broadcasting), down from Stern's peak syndication of 62 stations. California Bowl - Fresno, California (1981 - 1991). As of November 2004, the show, typically airing in the morning, is syndicated on 45 radio stations all across the U.S.

Bluegrass Bowl - Louisville, Kentucky (1958). Fines have occasionally been issued against radio stations airing his show, generally for violating FCC requirements regarding content. Still, the parent conglomerate that hosts Stern's show, Infinity Broadcasting (a subsidiary of Viacom), seems to consider these fines a necessary price to pay in order to support Stern's continuing popularity. Bluebonnet Bowl - Houston, Texas (1959 - 1987). His show is frequently the subject of complaints by various listeners who find his deliveries offensive - something he deliberately encourages. Bacardi Bowl - Havana, Cuba (1937). Stern believes he represents the future of America, where, in keeping with a longstanding trend, public moral standards will continue to loosen. Aviation Bowl - Dayton, Ohio (1961). Stern referred to himself as the "King Of All Media," a parody of Michael Jackson's claiming of the title "King of Pop." To his subjects this title is true, as they have been loyal consumers of The King's books, pay-per-view events and movies.

Aloha Classic - Honolulu, Hawaii (1982 – 2000). Wack Pack members are able to parlay their exposure on Stern's show into personal appearances at clubs and even the occasional movie. All-American Bowl - Birmingham, Alabama (1977 - 1990) (formerly Hall of Fame Classic). Stern has also shown the ability to take society's misfits and turn them into celebrities through The Wack Pack. Sun Bowl - El Paso, Texas, (since 1936) (originally Sun Bowl, later John Hancock Bowl). Stern's lawyer alleged, "It's our view that the real reason they've [fired Stern] is they would like to get new DC-101 deejays 'GreaseMan' and 'Adam Smasher' on the air as soon as possible, and hope the audience forgets about Howard, and that's a perfectly rational business judgment.". Sugar Bowl - New Orleans, Louisiana, (since 1935). That June 29, Stern was fired from DC-101 radio after being suspended for criticizing his station management and two other radio stations.
