Abstract This paper presents a profile of the mood states of nonscholarship football players as measured by the Profile of Mood States inventory. Analysis suggests that these 120 athletes did not conform to the "iceberg profile" described for elite athletes, differing mainly in the areas of tension and anger. The athletes measured for this report indicated more anger than a sample of 60 football players attending an institution providing financial aid for participation in sports. Total mood scores were lower than those of college athletes on scholarship and high school athletes and nonathletes. Differences in mood states were also found between members of the offensive and defensive squads and between varsity and junior varsity players.
