Boy sends $1 allowance to help save UAB football

DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) A 5-year-old Ohio boy hoping to save the scuttled football program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham thought more cash might be the solution, so he sent his entire allowance - a $1 bill - with a handwritten note of support.

"I love Ohio State, but I think you should have football too. Here is one dollar to help!" Bennett Williams of suburban Dublin, Ohio, wrote in the note to UAB.

He had decided he liked UAB after seeing its dragon logo and hoped to go to a game, but was very disappointed to learn the school is eliminating football to cut costs, his parents told The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1wSMWwD ). When the boy asked if contributing his allowance might help, his parents responded with optimism rather than rubbing in the financial realities of a football program that costs tens of millions of dollars.
