    So what's the biggest detractor for Canadian schools? The growth of American schools offering a football program has been steady even during the 80s when schools were dropping their programs. Since 1978 154 schools have added football in the States.

    In Canada over the same time period the CIS has added 4 schools and lost 2.

    While this topic is about American schools adding football, here is a story about the largest junior college in California (City College of San Francisco) & how it may have to close it's doors in March because of a loss of accreditation due to budget cuts. If that happens, that will send major shock waves through Junior College football especially in California but the rest of the United States as well.
