This time period, especially during the 1920's, was known as the Golden Age of Sports and the Spectator. At this time, college football was becoming more popular and the most famous team was Notre Dame. The good college football teams would compete in bowls, such as the Rose Bowl held in California. Many colleges including UNC and Duke were building or built their own football stadiums that are still used to this day. New stadiums and arenas were also being built at the time along with new and improved roads. For the first time, people began paying to watch these athletic competitions. The favored sport for most Americans was baseball. It was watched and played more than any other sport. Boxing, golf, horse racing, and tennis were all becoming more popular as well. Horse racing and boxing were frowned upon here in North Carolina because they are closely connected to gambling. Basketball was still a small sport during this time. Many colleges, if not all, played in gymnasiums about the same size as high school gyms are today. There were still many famous teams and players though. UNC went undefeated in 1924 and their best player (Jack Cobb) was considered one of the best, if not the best, players in the entire country. By the end of the 1920's, the Great Depression had come but by then, sports played such a big role in life that they survived the depression and are still around today.
