There are 15 football players in the UP hall of fame, so the program must have been the pinnacle of athletic prowess.

For comparison, the women’s soccer team has only been able to muster four players and the 2002 championship team. The other 15 All Americans apparently aren’t anything in comparison to those football stars.

My grandfather (who was the university treasurer in 1950) once told me that they made the decision to shut down the football program when they realized it cost more to outfit a Pilots football player than it did to outfit a GI.

I can't even imagine what those numbers would look like today ...

From the archives, and apparently when guns were allowed on campus, putting the football out of its misery and burying it on The Bluff in 1950...
