MilTownMVP Posted May 13, 2004 Share Posted May 13, 2004 I was going to post this in response to something at the logo board, but I realized it kind of went off topic, so I'm posting it here.If Marquette was smart (and I realize this is a big IF), they'd take some of that $33M donation they just got and start a football program now that they're in the Big East.You can't tell me that Milwaukee, the city that sold out Packer game at County Stadium how many times in spite of it being the WORST facility possible for football wouldn't fall all over itself to see some major college football.It'd also mean somewhere for all those city conference players to play college ball since UW seems hell-bent on maintaining their big-dumb-farmboy image it has for its football team. Right now, most of them end up at Minnesota or NIU because there's nowhere else in-state for them to go.But what really has me is that I go by the MU bookstore everyday and I see sweatshirts that say "Marquette Football" and "Marquette Tradition" above a football all the time. Seems like overkill tryin' to promote a sport that hard that they only offer at the club level, huh? It seems like they want people to know they HAD football once upon a time, but want to keep us guessin' at whether or not they'll bring it back.
