UALR announced July 12 that it would conduct such a study, which could result in the rebirth of a football program that played its final season in 1955.

Oh for the love of god...what a waste of time and TAXPAYER money. If UA can't sell out War Memorial just 1 game a year, what in the holy hell makes UALR believe the numbers will tip in their favor? Let me guess, the study will find WM is inadequate and that a new stadium will be required costing many millions for which the city would have to float MORE bonds we can't afford. Ticket costs to support expenditures will be so exhorbitant that no one will buy them. And the whole excercise will produce zero full time, decent paying jobs - just $millions for lawyers, investment bankers, administrators, coaches and stadium construction companies

So less than $100,000 will be wasted to find out UALR football is a dumb, unaffordable proposition. That's good.
