The Harvard/McGill contests in May of 1874 were the first games similar to today's football; i.e., you could pick up the ball and run with it, instead of just kicking it, and there were 11 men to a side. Close to today's rugby.

The NCAA cares only that men should share toilets and locker rooms
with girls. In the USA. The jihadists have won.
