Subject: You get an "F" on your Fordham Football history test. Elevating the football program was made possible by the Visiting Committee for Athletics(and Bill Walsh), a group of very substantial donors($25,000 or more each per year) that worked with(and on) the Board and Fr. O'Hare to make the move to 1-AA possible. We are in the process of gathering a similar funding scenario for basketball. My prediction: by 2007 we have a winning basketball program that plays in the NCAA Tournament and a scholarship 1-AA football program.
