Suggesting the end of UH football

I have always wondered what the numbers are on University of Hawai‘i and their football program and how much it impacts Hawai‘i.

Now that they are doing away with Aloha Stadium and are in the process of finding a new stadium, it will take some time to find a permanent home for UH football.

Honestly speaking, I am for the businessmen who could care less about the football program but instead takes a neutral stand on the topic only because their customers seem to enjoy watching it.

They are playing at Ching Field on UH-Manoa campus this fall.

Like myself, many people have expressed their opinions on it, but never got a chance to publicize it. I would like very much if they would just close down UH football at UH-Manoa and turn the program over to the engineering department or medical department and turn this school into one of the two, to make it into a major school of choice. There would be no more UH football in the future.

I also believe that many people in the community would agree with me when I say that this doing away of football would generate more funds to needed areas, like the pandemic and the coronavirus research. This research would make UH into a national magnet in medicine and set the way for further education, all the while canceling out athletics, football, more specific at UH.

There would be other sports, but the main contributor of the university would be on education and not football. If you feel this can be the case, please comment on the article and do say a few thoughts on it.

Just a resident who is tired of voting for UH football and want it to be done away with.
