NCAA Looks at Football Safety

The NCAA says it plans to start a new sports science center to help establish better safety standards for college football.

In a statement sent to The Associated Press on Monday, the NCAA calls player safety a "foundational" principle.

The comments come one day after President Barack Obama said he would have to think long and hard about whether he would let a son, if he had one, play football.

At the Super Bowl, several players said they would let their sons play football, and former NFL offensive lineman Tony Borelli wrote on Twitter that while he would allow his sons to play football, he would "think long and hard" about letting them enter politics.
