    With the Championship game tonight, wondering if there are any other college football fans out here?

    I got Georgia.

    Well they should have won. If Fromm had made that easy slant pass would have got a first and been able to run out the clock I think.

    That was such a bold sub at half time. True Freshman QB's man.

    I think you will find American Football, when it was first played you couldn't carry or throw it. Its just evolved over the years. Was a round ball too.

    What a shame.

    So was it actual football they played at the beginning?

    No, they could still use their hands but just to hit it forward, basically just get it forward with any body part you want but you couldn't pick it up or carry it. Didn't take long though until they changed the rules.

    Harvard didn't like the first style it says, they liked the rugby style when you could carry/run with it so I guess they just combined the two together.

    The early rules seem as though they played a part in the development of Basketball.

    Iíve just been reading about the origins of both sports. American sports and their uniqueness are very interesting, despite the fact I donít enjoy watching them.

    I really enjoy the NFL, have done since I was a kid. Not that keen on Basketball or Baseball but American Football is second to football in sports I enjoy.

    Still got a lot of favorable calls that helped them win.

    Took a lot of balls though and it paid off. They were getting torched before.
