Game saver for Uni Tas

There are people in Hobart who think Rufus Black is a dark lord – here’s his chance to become a devil

There are reports that a Tasmanian team in the AFL is an imminently happening thing – which gives VC Rufus Black a chance to make the university beloved by (almost) all.

University of Tasmanian Devils” would be a great name for a footy team and as one of the state’s few state-wide institutions, university sponsorship would keep the club above north-south rivalries.

Plus, if the team trained at the existing campus at Sandy Bay nobody outside inner Hobart would care if the university moves to the CBD.
