  • Wichita State University Football Team Analysis

    16 years after the plane crash that then University President Warren Armstrong cut the program due to financial reasons. To this day many people argue and debate whether Wichita State should reinstate the football program and it is my belief that they should. Since the ending of the program there have been multiple instances of outside and inside sources contemplating bringing the program back. For example, in 1998 an advisory committee at Wichita State recommended reinstating the football program at Wichita State after a 15-month study for $70,000. Just recently, in June of 2016 the University released a 69-page study that titled Football Benchmarking Analysis. In the study, multiple costs and findings were discovered. For example, Cessna Stadium would require $21-$28 million in renovations and another estimated $21 million for new facilities. Also, if the program would jump to FBS football the roster size would put the participation ratio at 59% male and 41% female which would result in the school having to add more women’s sports or cutting some men’s sports to be Title IX compliant. These are just two of many problems and concerns that have this question brewing. Not to mention the millions of dollars that would be spent on recruiting, coaches, food, travel, gear, etc. The reasons I believe the University should reinstate the program are simple, but will require time. In the long run, I believe the revenue capability is substantial. Many of the costs at hand our all…
