Faceguarding is a perfectly legal technique in the NFL and NCAA.

That's not correct. NFL is perfectly legal as long as no contact as made. NCAA does not allow faceguarding, you must turn around and play the ball.

In NCAA there is no faceguarding rule. Pass interference only takes place if contact is made with the eligible receiver.

Was face mask grabbing always prohibited in football?

The rule can be broken down into flagrant (15 yard penalty) and non-flagrant (5 yard penalty). Obviously in a rough game, infractions do occur and if the referee feels that the face mask was grabbed inadvertently a five yard penalty may be called. If the referee feels that it was intentional, a 15 yard personal foul may be called. Usually in the flagrant variety you will see the player's head turn 90 degrees, you will see the player 'tackled' by the face mask or any other grabbing which really makes most people 'cringe' because it could break your neck.
