Bethany Lutheran did a study on adding football at one point, could they be an option?

Maybe in normal times.  But just getting the basics down will be a challenge for the budget planners.

Martin Luther College has added a high quality commit with Carson Oestreich from Pierce, Nebraska. A member of the state runner-ups who rushed for 230 yards and 5 TD's in the semi final game. Had an offer from NAIA Morningside, but chose MLC instead.

Very much a WELS centric group here. Kinda intrigued for the  matchup against my alma mater (WLC) this season.
Once a Warrior always a Warrior.

First ever matchup between MLC and WLC and should be a very good, evenly matched game. The game this year is in Milwaukee and the 2021 game will be in New Ulm. The Warriors hold a 2-0 advantage in men's basketball and the volleyball teams split their 2017 and 2018 matches. It seems like it should be a more natural matchup in most sports for the schools, but the two schools seldom cross paths. Hoping this game actually gets played.

George Fox recently restarted football after several years.
Occidental had to cut a season short because of lack of players.  A special effort was undertaken to fund the program.
I'm sure these figures reflect these activities rather than ongoing gate receipts.
