Established in 1906, the NCAA was first formed to protect student-athletes from exploitative practices that were widespread at the time. However, a closer look reveals an additional reason — one related entirely to college football.
Amid growing fears that college football was too dangerous and on the verge of being abolished, football representatives gathered to develop new regulations and safety measures. This safety agreement led to the creation of the Intercollegiate Athletic Association, which would eventually be renamed the NCAA in 1910.
Today, more than 460,000 college athletes make up the NCAA.
