Soccer Ball

New and Improved (maybe)!

    The soccer ball originated as a challenge at the 2005 OUSA Convention in New York. I insisted that it is possible to create a soccer ball with color-changed pentagons from a square. I asked John Montroll about it, and he replied that it was possible but too difficult to fold. I really should have listened to him...

    I did succeed in theoretically designing a soccer ball, but it has proven to be quite difficult to fold. Here are some diagrams which are somewhat ambiguous.
