About 100 people attended a town hall meeting at Winthrop University on March 13 to hear the latest research on the feasibility of adding a football team at the school. Some students raised concerns about football changing the campus culture or detracting from the university's academic focus. School leaders addressed concerns and answered questions while reminding the audience that football at Winthrop is still an "if." To read The Herald's story on the town hall, visit
