Washington State has lots of financial problems too....

I really think football will be dropped at a ton of colleges due to the fact that it is so costly....

we'll be down to 20 colleges with competitive teams....should be fun....NOT!

How about.... NO. They rake in $million each year - they can weather a season without football.

Sports is DEAD. I am one of the holdouts and I now have zero care for it all. I feel bad for kids who are getting screwed.
