    Because the school cut the sport


    Is it just me or is Championship Subdivision football a money pit?

    All I could find were posts about this in threads about other things.

    I can hear the North Dakota State rubes from here clamoring for the return of Rocky Hager.

    Probably. Except that with only 63 scholarships, most programs have another 30-40 kids on the team who are walk-ons and who pay full tuitions and fees.

    EVERY SINGLE INTERCOLLEGIATE SPORT except some power-conference football programs, and virtually every power-conference men's basketball program, can be described as a "money pit," if by a "money pit" you mean it operates at a deficit.

    John Silber is proud.
    The Huskies have invited us over for a woot-off next Homecoming.
  7. I remember during my senior year at UConn, Boston University played its first game in Storrs after it got word that the football program would cease to be after the '97 season.

    The Terriers wore their practice jerseys and taped over their helmet logo during the game. A sad, but cool, protest.

    My dad went to Northeastern and he always got a kick out of it whenever Howard Cosell said the late Bengals' tight end Dan Ross went to "little Northeastern University," which my dad always pointed out was the largest private university in the country.

    Glad to see that they beat URI for their final game. That's kind of like being Tom Brady and retiring after beating the 2008 Detroit Lions.

    I thought the University of Phoenix was the nation's largest private university.

    Isn't that why the Cardinals always want to play in a college stadium?

    More like the 2009 Browns folding after beating the 2008 Lions.

    Anyone know if Northeastern ever played Northwestern? It would have been cool if they had.
