The NCAA Sport Science Institute hosted the 2018 Football Data Task Force in Indianapolis February 26 and 27, 2018. The purpose of the meeting was to: 1) review emerging information from the NCAA-DoD CARE Consortium, The Datalys Center and the Ivy League Conference regarding concussion and repetitive head impact exposure in football, and; 2) facilitate dialogue around how the emerging information may impact and help shape college football rules, policies and procedures going forward. The event was attended by concussion scientists and experts as well as by Divisions I, II and III conference commissioners, directors of athletics, sports medicine staff and football coaches and officials. The meeting was co-chaired by Bob Bowlsby, commissioner of the Big 12 Conference, and Brian Hainline, NCAA chief medical officer.
