    UT-Arlington has 20,000 undergraduates. Hasn't played football since 1985. Rally to bring back football draws 70. Just goes to show that football isn't king everywhere in Texas. UTA has to have one of the most invisible athletic programs of any university its size.

    This would be like my old school (IUPUI) attempting to start up a football program. Sure, the school has 30,000 students. But 29,500 of them commute. And a lot of them are post-college age students who have too much going on to give a crap about rah-rah school spirit.

    Plus, in DFW you already have SMU and TCU. Oh, and the Cowboys. So where does UTA fit in? No shock there's no groundswell here.

    On a related note:

    Canadian hockey fans' euphoria at having their game back, which produced record TV ratings, has apparently cooled off.

    National ratings for CBC and TSN show a significant decline from last season, the first after the NHL lost the entire season to a labour dispute.
    Hockey Night in Canada ratings are down 19 per cent for the early game and a whopping 33 per cent for the late one compared to last year. TSN's ratings have dropped 18 per cent.

    Hockey isn't king everywhere in Canada!
