For example, I was wondering if college football players were required to wear hip pads. According to the "Mandatory Equipment" section on page 24 of the following linked publication, the answer is YES.

NCAA Football Rules
http://www.ncaapublications.com/prod...loads/FR17.pdf

Quote:
Mandatory Equipment
ARTICLE 3. All players must wear the following mandatory equipment:
a. Helmet.
b. Hip pads.
c. Jersey.
d. Knee pads.
e. Mouthpiece.
f. Pants.
g. Shoulder pads.
h. Socks.
i. Thigh guards.

Specifications: Mandatory Equipment
ARTICLE 4.
a. Helmets.
1. The helmet must be fitted with a facemask and a secured four- or ix-point chin strap, all points of which must be secured whenever the ball is in play.
2. Helmets for all players of a team must be of the same color and design.
3. Helmets must carry a warning label regarding the risk of injury and a manufacturer’s or reconditioner’s certification indicating satisfaction of National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) test standards.
b. Hip Pads.
Hip pads must include a tailbone protector.
c. Jersey
See Rule 1-4-5
d. Knee Pads.
Knee pads must be at least 1/2-inch thick and must be covered by pants. It is strongly recommended that they cover the knees. No pads or protective equipment may be worn outside the pants.
e. Mouthpiece.
The mouthpiece must be an intra-oral device of any readily visible color. It must not be white or transparent. It must be made with FDA-approved base materials (FDCS) and cover all upper teeth. It is recommended that the mouthpiece be properly fitted.
f. Pants.
Players of a team must wear pants of the same color and design.
g. Shoulder pads.
There are no specifications for shoulder pads. (See Appendix D)
h. Socks.
Players of a team must wear socks or leg coverings that are identical in color and design (Exceptions: Unaltered knee braces, tape or a bandage to protect or prevent an injury, and barefoot kickers).
i. Thigh guards.
There are no specifications for thigh guards. (See Appendix D)

Terrific idea, Trav! This thread should be a great source for members when the rules are involved in our discussions.

Thanks for your contribution to this board!

Can we get this permanently stuck to the top so we don't have to search for it later?

Sure. I actually thought about that when I responded to Traveler's post, but forgot to do it before I logged out.

Good idea, Max! You know what they say about "great minds."
