Pigskin Dispatch Podcast: Bootleg Footballs
Pigskin Dispatch podcaster Darin Hayes and I discuss a recent TidBit about bootleg footballs, which were slimmer, more aerodynamic balls than regulation that appeared on football fields in 1928. The NCAA banned the balls but revised its regulations a few years later, which remain in place today. We also cover how balls deflated and had to be replaced at the time.
