SFCC should have football

I think football at SFCC is a great idea. Why is Jackson Sasser so opposed to it? Just think about all the money it would bring to the school. It would cost money to set up, but they would probably get that money back in endorsements and revenue from tickets.
Also, it would allow players another option besides going right to UF or other major colleges. I know when I was in high school we had a lot of great players on our football team that never played at a higher level because they were not big enough for major college teams. But think if they had community colleges that offered programs that would have helped them bulk up and improve their skills.
President Sasser shouldn't look down on a program like this. It would be good for the school and the community. If he were as concerned about the school as he claims, he would want a program like this to get a better reputation in the country and get more out-of-state students.
