“The ball was round, the equipment was homemade, and the rules were uncertain, but that game the boys were playing on the lawn at Mercer University in 1892 was football.” Thus begins this colorful history of football at Mercer University. This volume describes in sharp and clear detail the history and evolution of college football as played by the Mercer University team from 1892–1942. After a seventy-year hiatus, the Mercer Bears will once again take the field in the fall of 2013.
