Football is a fundraising/money-making venture for the school:
 - Football keeps alumni connected to the school, increasing donations

Many schools have insignificant sporting programs and *don't* have
Nobel winners on faculty - there is no connection... (of course, IMHO

How many CS graduates return to their alma mater (sp?) and give
*significant* money? Oh, I'm sure there are a few, but...
