Hofstra cutting football, citing cost, low interest

As a big college football fan, this is some sad news. Playing a 1AA schedule is a tough sell, particularly in the New York Metropolitan area. Rutgers, playing in the Big East never started to draw well until they began winning and going to bowl games in 2005.

This is the second program to fall in recent weeks- Northeastern has also dropped football. Unfortunately, this could be just the beginning of a slew of money losing programs making the cut due to tough economic times.
