Best Answer

At one time, pro footballs were striped all the way around, but now the pro ball has no stripes at all. The stripes on a college ball are only on the top half of the ball (the half with the laces) and have no meaning in todays game. The stripes are kept as a part of College Football tradition. They were once thought to be a visual aid in quickly pointing the laces outward in field goal situations.
