NCAA COMMITTEE PONDERS DEVELOPMENT OF WOMEN'S FOOTBALL TEAMS
Published July 16, 1999
At a "quiet meeting" in N.Y. last week, the NCAA Committee on Women's Athletics "discussed" the possibility of forming women's college football teams, according to Tom Farrey of ESPN.com. Committee member Earl Edwards: "We talked about it for 10 or 15 minutes. ... Now that women are involved in ice hockey, wrestling and boxing, it opens up the door for anything, including football. We were definitely open to it." The idea was introduced by Women's Sports Foundation Exec Dir Donna Lopiano. Farrey's "guess is that most of America isn't yet ready for gridiron girls," though NCAA schools "are under serious pressure to add women's sports opportunities" (ESPN.com, 7/15).
