Another victim of the economic crunch:

Western Washington University is ending its Football program

WWU has had a huge budget shortfall, due to the economic meltdown. For instance, they've frozen hiring for all open positions -- part of why I can't seem to find a job locally. Closing down the college football program for economic reasons is just further evidence about how bad it's getting.

Western's not a big football school. In my 2 years at the school, I never went to a game. None of my friends went to games. Football just never was very big here. Unlike many schools, football was never much of a source of revenue, and the program is losing money.

But I have to admit, I'm still a little surprised...
