    True.
    There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

      Let's restart football on a trial basis. Play in Cessna stadium. See what happens.

      If people start to rally around it, we'll consider a larger investment.

      Let's give people a taste.

      We'll recruit the Eldorado Correctional team...

        For heaven's sakes you don't tear Cessna down. You give it a fresh coat of paint.

        We're not starting with FCS football. We raise $250,000 from local groups so we can buy pads, training equipment, and Gatorade. Then we hold open tryouts until we have a black and gold team. Then we start public scrimmages. We can scrimmage high schools, Jucos, or just our own two teams. After the media gets the news out, we sit back and wait. If interest starts to percolate, we explore starting at the lowest collegiate level on planet earth. Isn't that Drake football? Partial scholarship, no scholarship, whatever. We see what the numbers are and what kind of backing will step up. If it looks like we can support it without touching basketball, we go. The rest is history.
        Cessna was declared unsafe at full capacity iirc.

        I do remember there being a parcel available as a gift north of the campus if football was started.

        • Cold, I am afraid that your plan is too ambitious for the people of Wichita and WSU fans. I don't think you could get enough business support for even that.

            Have to do it quick and build it before the State wises up and shuts those things down.
            Agree…. Tear down Cessna for a 12-15k track stadium and look at some type of Star funding for a football stadium on/near campus for 40k 1/2 bowl with design for expansion. Make it nice and make it big.

            • For those in favor of starting a football team, would you be interested in a stadium downtown if the city contributed more? Or does the stadium need to be on campus?

                On/near campus… visible from Charles Koch’s office.

                    You could put one in ****ing Haysville for all I care. Just get the damn thing built and fill it with Shocker footballers. This is getting ridiculous. Friends University has a football team for ****'s sakes. Friends University is like Creighton... podunk.

                    But yeah, downtown would be REALLY nice.

                      Then get an engineer out there and install some beams. You don't tear that thing down. Not at first. There won't be any packed stadiums for club football. This is just to turn a dream into something tangible. Give the citizens a chance to see and experience the possibilities.

                        That's not a real thing is it?

                            No ****ing title 9 w/ my football team. Open tryouts as soon as the jerseys get delivered.

                            Zero scholarships.

                            Title 9 is wayyyyyyyyyyyy down the road.

                            Let's just get warm bodies in jerseys.

                            We'll even let non-males on the team if they can prove they can take a hit. 2021.

                                Yes this is probably the biggest reason there is still no a team. FCS is 63 scholarships and every cost is essentially doubled.
