A Quiet Fall: Few Miss Football at Saint Mary's
A San Francisco Chronicle story takes a look at life on the Saint Mary's College campus eight months after the football program was discontinued.
The article notes: As the stadium sits empty, with one-time Gaels football players now at Boston College and UNLV and Sacramento State, students at Saint Mary's move forward. An informal campus survey found little outrage about attending a football-less school, and widespread approval of the expanding budgets of other sports.
The article goes on to say that the attention of Saint Mary's fans has shifted to the 12th-ranked women's volleyball team, which already has won a school-record 22 matches, or to men's basketball, widely expected to contend for the WCC championship.
