One of the biggest events in the history of small college football was certainly the development of the forward pass. It's hard today to imagine a football game without passing. Yet, that's what it used to be -- only a running game. Here's an interesting story about the Origins of the Forward Pass.
It's also interesting, historically, prior to the development of the mass media we have today, to discover that small college football used to be bigger than "big college football." Small college football had more teams, more fans, more players -- and even routinely beat big college football teams -- on the gridiron.
You can gain insight into this history in this article written in 1915 by Fielding Yost: Reasons for Early Small College Football Success.
