With A Strong Team, SCSU Football Now Must Draw Fans [AUDIO, POLL]

SCSU Athletics

ST. CLOUD – The St. Cloud State University football team is kicking-off their season tonight (Thursday).

It’s a season that almost didn’t happen.  The team was on the chopping block last fall, and the program would have been eliminated if not for the students who voted last November to raise their own activity fees by $1.74 per credit.

Now that the team has been given a new lease on life, Husky Gridiron Club President Bill Mund says they plan to work hard to create excitement for the team in the community.

Mund says, if the team is successful again this year, the SCSU students will also attend more games.  However, we went to campus today (Thursday) looking for students who were excited about the team.  Most were like Senior Dan Wilhelm who seemed indifferent toward the team.

Last year the Huskies had an average home attendance of just over 4,000 fans for the regular season.  And, despite the distractions, they had one of their most successful seasons in recent memory, making it to the second round of the playoffs.   They start this season ranked #12 Nationally in Division II.

They start the season tonight (Thursday) at Division II power California University of Pennsylvania.
