Bring Back Titan Football Referendum Petition (Current Students Only)
- Eric Niu- CSUF ASI President
- United States of America
We, the undersigned, (CURRENTLY ENROLLED STUDENTS) hereby pledge our support for the reinstatement of the sport of intercollegiate football at California State University, Fullerton. The Cal State Fullerton Football Team can trace its roots back to 1970 when the sport was first established at CSUF.
In the 23 years of competition prior to the program’s cancellation following the 1992 season, the Cal State Fullerton Football program has produced numerous professional football players and a number of former coaches have coached or currently coach in the National Football League. We believe that reinstating the Cal State Fullerton Football Team will provide a greater sense of pride and cohesiveness among current students, alumni and the community in the greater Orange County, California area.
Reinstating the football program entails a student activity fee of $86 per semester phased in over five years ( e.g. yr1 $25, yr2 $25 + $17 ($42), yr 3+ $25 ($67), yr4 +$13 (80), yr5 + $6 (86) ) . This activity fee would not only finance NCAA mens football, but NCAA women's crew, lacrosse, and field hockey and scholarships as well also necessary athletic trainers and associate directors that would need to be hired.
The main argument for the elimination of the Cal State Fullerton Football program in 1992 was overall apathy and a lack of fan support at that time. By signing this petition, we are proving that assumption to be false and no longer valid in today’s climate. This petition will be presented to Joseph Lopez, ASI President & CEO-Associated Students, CSUF, Inc., during April 2011. The petition will be presented during a special town hall meeting intended to gauge interest in reinstating the Cal State Fullerton Football program to active status.
By signing this petition, we request California State University, Fullerton reinstate the Cal State Fullerton Football Team to full competitive status within the NCAA.
