XU fans are claiming that the school's board will soon be considering a nonscholarship football startup.  Interestingly, the school announced today that it has received an alumni gift of $50M. Maybe a tiny piece of the loot will buy football gear.

This was also reported on Cincinnati Channel 12, which confirmed the university would seek PFL membership.  Timeline would be 1-2 years (2024 season?).

Drakefootballfan, did I meet you in Pennsylvania?

Nope, never been there. Dislike Penn State so much won't go there.

It never seemed that they had much enthusiasm for bringing the sport back.  Now that they've placated the football alums, they should bury it.

I agree with Xaviers priorities.  Drake should figure out how to have a medical school. Capitol city with 4 hospitals. would be perfect. I didn't know it was something a school could do anymore, but apparently Xavier is starting from scratch?
