Tiger Club board member David Nevins was in Kingston, R.I., when he watched Towson win its first Colonial Athletic Association football championship last fall. As the Tigers were battling Rhode Island on the field, Nevins and Tigers athletic director Mike Waddell were talking about the reward: championship rings. One problem: Waddell had not put the approximately $50,000 necessary for the rings into his budget. "He thought maybe that he may be criticized for not putting the money in the budget," Nevins said.

Pat Casey resigned as president of the Tiger Club Tuesday over what he said were differences with those who want to save Towson State football."I think the best thing for the university and the athletic department is to suspend football," Casey said last night. "I'm not anti-football. I've been a supporter of the team, but it's my opinion that Towson State can't have football and a viable Division I athletic program at the same time."Replacing Casey, who became Tiger Club president in June 1989, is Scott Hargest.

Football was dangling by a thread. As a cruel fact of financial life, Towson State University couldn't afford the overhead. The sport had become too much of a luxury, and the university president had to consider abandoning the program to free the athletic budget of its most costly expenditure.With some indignation and intense pride, a strong element of the alumni, along with present and former football players, reacted against any such extermination. Excitement suddenly replaced apathy. There was a concerted move to preserve football, and those devoted to the cause said they were willing to help pay the price.
