UTSA another step closer to adding football – San Antonio Business Journal:

This sounds fine – but I’m not for it.  Even though I am paying for my son’s education at UTSA, I didn’t get a vote.  THAT SUCKS.

I have no problem with them adding football – and no issue at all with those who love football supporting it.  But I should not HAVE to support football if I choose not to.  It is NOT a core curriculum item.  Teach them to read, and write, and THINK.  THEN teach them CPR.  THEN, MAYBE consider football.  I should not HAVE to support the football program to attend a University.

But I didn’t get a vote.

Welcome to the land of “the free”.

Students at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) have taken a big step toward bringing a Division I football program to the Alamo City.

University officials say nearly 66 percent of students who voted in a campus referendum Sept. 11 and 12 approved an increase of their athletic fees as part of a plan that could significantly raise the profile of UTSA’s sports program nationally.
