Today my daughter's college, Jacksonville University in FL, announced they are discontinuing the football program.  They were in the FCS Pioneer League.  UA played them in 2008 in the Gridiron Classic and won 28-0 in the snow.  They said they would rather spend the money in other sports.  I know the president is high on mens Lax since no college in FL is D1 except them.  Offering full scholies to players who stay to finish degree.  Reminds me of Hofstra several years ago who did the same though they had a good following and rivals in SBU.  JU has to compete with UF, FSU, the U, UCF, etc for attention and players.  Makes sense I guess.

Wasn't snowing but the field was frozen to muddy, I remember them whining  that we must have watered the field before the cold snap (like Bob Ford was so great he could control the weather) and they didn't have the right shoes

Back then the TV production was not good so the frozen field looked snow covered, lol.  Remember watching it and thinking a FL team will struggle on the field conditions as they did.

Yeah, it was cold that day. I wandered over to the visitors side to try and catch whatever sun was available. That was the day McCarty went wild, right?
