Coaches hated the forward pass too. The pass was brought in to slow down the number of deaths college football had. Later, because teams like TN and Alabama had so many scholarship players it was decided that there had to be a limit to the number of scholarships a team could give out, etc. Then the pesky overtime and then instant replay. College football has always evolved.
Not really college now though. Us d to be a huge deal for a player to get a scholarship and a 4 year college degree paid for. But now they have to be paid hundreds and thousands to millions.
How long before we start paying high school players?
