Are you ready for some football?
Campus life at any university should be a fun and exciting experience for every college student whether living on campus or not, but one look at UTs campus reveals that it lacks what students really need for that to be possible. UT has an enormous new $20 million library and a fairly large recreation center, but thats not what makes college life so memorable. Students dont go to the library on their weekends to hang out and have fun; they go where all the action is taking place. UT should supply the campus with enough activity to satisfy the students and attract people from all over. UT should develop a football program.

No other sport inspires a sense of loyalty quite like college football (Benson 1). Football unites every student of the university to support the team representing it and motivates them to participate in school activities. Through these activities, students bond with one another, forming friendships that will last a lifetime. One walk around the campus at UT shows that student interaction is kept to a minimum, causing a lonely atmosphere for out-of-state students and transfer students. Football increases student interaction and provides an atmosphere that invites everyone to be a part of the school.

Football games provide all students with safe weekend fun while at the same time promoting school spirit and pride, things that UT lacks. There is no better way to keep students out of the party scene than to provide activities on campus that are fun and exciting and clean. Football is the only option for UT even though there are many people that protest against it.

Arguments are made that UT is not big enough to support a football team of any size. That is not true. How can UT support a $20 million library? The same way it could support a football team instead. Once the football program is up and running, the amount of scholarships given out would increase dramatically. In effect, enrollment would increase dramatically and bring more money and students to UT. Also, many high school students living in the area that play football have
