football as it used to be

I don't follow football any more, but I still took great pleasure in reading noted writer John McPhee's piece in the New Yorker which has a lot of football history and his personal involvement with the game. I broke out laughing, for example, when I read this:
My father played football at Oberlin, class of 1917, notably in a game won by Ohio State 128–0.
College football was different a half century and a full century ago.  Read it and enjoy.
