Winthrop should stick to education, not football

-A A +A

Now Winthrop University is thinking about adding football to their course offerings.

Why in heaven’s name do the taxpayers of South Carolina need another football program? 

I realize Winthrop has the stigma of being labeled a girls school, but wouldn’t a college dedicated to education serve us better?

Adding new facilities, coaching staff, scholarships and conference membership during difficult times just doesn’t seem a wise choice.
