These are rules that are upheld by the majority of any football leagues in the United States. These are the similarities between the NFL and college football. Many of the differences between college and NFL football are minor rules that may change from time to time. In college football when a player is running the ball if his knee hit the ground; the play would end. Whereas in the NFL if the player was not touched by the other team prior to his knee hitting the ground he would be able to stand up and continue the play.
One of the possible alternatives that I have actually begun to take part in since college is flag football. Flag football is the perfect alternative for those parents who want their children to be as safe as possible but still get the benefits that actual football has too. The rules for flag football are clearly laid out by Plumer "Removing the flags around the ball carrier's waist equates to the same thing as a tackle in full contact football. The only requirement of the field is that it is rectangular with two even end zones this free form format allows for flexibility in finding a field. Overtime games are decided by a field goal shootout, and after a touchdown a team is granted one point for kicking and two points for running or passing the ball into the end zone.
Is the BCS fair? Again Bill Hancock argues heavily that it cannot get fairer than the BCS. Central to his argument in defense of the BCS is Hancock’s interview with Gary Patterson, the head football coach of Texas Christian University (TCU). TCU is a smaller school than most would expect to be against the BCS, but Hancock highlights Patterson’s support for the system. Hancock quotes an ESPN interview with Patterson saying, “We had a vision nine years ago of reaching a BCS bowl and going to a national championship.
Formerly known as Division-1, the BCS is a system implemented into the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision to crown a “mythical” champion. Currently this division is the only one in the NCAA that does not host a play off or tourney in order to crown an overall champion of this division. In talking about the BCS we will touch on several aspects such as history that will lead to the BCS creation, reasoning behind the system, and then breaking down how the rating system actually works. From all of this the goal in mind is not only be able to understand the system, but also to be well informed enough to begin to form an opinion on if the ratings are done in a fair manner. The NCAA as an entirety has always held tournaments in order to crown a champion
Friday Night Lights provided all three of these themes plus a whole list of others. This movie also helps to decode why football has such an impact on the youth of America, especially high school football. The 1988 Permian Panther football team deserved to win this game yet they lost, but yet they gained much more out of this experience than the victors did. They learned that football helped turn them into men; it helped them to become much more diverse human beings. Teaching them the basics of being a man while at the same time teaching them the importance of team work and perseverance through whatever life throws at you.

Under NFL rules, joint possessions results in offensive possession that gave the Seahawks the winning touchdown. The issue isn’t that the joint possession call was made but that it wasn’t overturned despite overwhelming video evidence that pointed out not only that M.D. Jennings had both arms around the ball and the ball was tucked into his chest while Tate only had one arm on it but that it appears that Tate shoved Packers defender Sam Shields in the back while the ball was in the air, a move that
Roger Goodell Commissioner was concerned over the replacement and Scott Green, the president of the NFL Referees Association announced that a new contract was agreed on. The ref's sat out for 115 days. Tim Millis, the executive director of the NFLRA, told USA TODAY Sports that a deal had been reach, “very good” and that most of the discussion were question-and answer session on non-economics matters.

The other was Robert Griffin the third commonly referred to as RG3 he was the Heisman trophy winner that hailed from Baylor, he was drafted 2nd by the Washington Redskin.
