Once upon a time they did play without helmets..so many people were hurt and killed it almost ended collegiate football. Teddy Roosevelt among others stepped in and one result was helmets were required

I took my son to the ER first game of the season because he was dominating the line. It took two of them, helmet to helmet on my boy to stop him. He was playing hard, in order to stop him they played dirty. Cost him the entire season.

I am no fan of helmet to helmet...at any level


Same here.
My son missed the last 2 regular season games and both our playoff games this season due to a helmet on helmet lick. Had a concussion/neck stinger.
They just need to teach them a different technique.
Shoulder pads, man, hit 'em with the shoulder pads.
Then BOTH of you get to play on.

Has exactly the same injury. Scared the bee geezers outta me. Bad part is it got into his head. He's finally admitted it scared him but has started conditioning for High School next year. He needs football. His relationship with his mom has given him a well of aggression that needs an outlet and football was doing it.

I had one in lacrosse as well. I went after a guy that outweighed me by about 50 lbs. Since he was probably about 6" taller than me at the time, the crown of my helmet caught him right up under the jaw. Both of us stumbled to the sidelines and didn't play the rest of the game. Ruined my helmet.

But lacrosse helmets aren't the same as football helmets. They're not designed for the same impact, so I think that made our situation worse.

I haven't played since the 70's. So I can't tell you how they coach it now. Things may have changed. But we were coached to use our helmets in the 70's.

How many of you had your coach tell you to put your helmet in their numbers?

"I want to hear those helmets pop."

"Running backs put that head down and pop those helmets."

"Put your helmet in his ear hole"

That was how it was done back then.
