BOSTON U. DROPS FOOTBALL AND INCREASES WOMEN'S BUDGET
Published October 28, 1997
Boston Univ. will discontinue its men's football team after this season, according to Joe Burris of the BOSTON GLOBE. The cancelling of football "is part of an athletic restructuring plan that includes building an athletic complex and boosting women's sports programs" at the school. The plan calls for "increasing funding for women's sports by $500,000 annually and increasing scholarships for women" by 23 by '98-99. School officials said they can "no longer justify providing" $3M of its athletics budget to a sport that generates "sparse interest and brings in just $40,000 annually in ticket sales and $50,000 in alumni and friends' contributions" (Joe Burris, BOSTON GLOBE, 10/26).
