Jason Blakeney:

There is no scenario under which UWF will not field a football team for the 2016 season, Bense said. …

The decision to field a football team is within Bense’s power as the university’s president. Bense will present her plan to the board of trustees Sept. 20 looking for their support. If the trustees do not lend their support, the program still can go forward without their approval.

A football stadium has been in the athletic facilities master plan for a few years now, but Bense says that’s not an immediate priority.

“There’s plenty of places to play in Pensacola,” Bense said.

I can think of a good spot.
