Hofstra University Dropping Football


Hofstra University has just announced the decision to drop football.  The decision was made after a unanimous vote by the Hofstra Board of Trustees.  The program had been in existence since 1937. 

The following link provides more information about the decision.

ESPN also has coverage of the decision.

The savings will be allocated to academic initatives and need based financial aid.
