Shaping College Football
By:Raymond Schmidt
Published on 2007 by Syracuse University Press

Shaping College Football is the story of the intercollegiate gridiron sport in the years immediately after World War I when the game underwent monumental changes that transformed it into one of America's fundamental sporting attractions and a commercial entity that would be recognizable to any twenty-first-century fan. Raymond Schmidt examines the many factors that were a part of college football's transformation in the 1920s as universities became dependent upon the revenue being generated by football and the sport increasingly became identified as a commercialized, big business activity. Offering the most detailed examination ever undertaken of college football's |Golden Era,| Schmidt covers issues ranging from the shift of power away from the game's pioneering schools, through the real evolution offorward passing, to stadium building and the decade-long struggle over the game's growing overemphasis that culminated in the legendary Carnegie Report of 1929.
