100-400L for sports

I have just been asked to work full time for my university's newspaper as the sports photographer. This will, of course, mean I will be shooting football as well as other sports. I have the 70-200L(w/ 20D), but its def not enough reach on the football field. I would like to get a good telephoto lens with plenty of reach....and the flexibility of a zoom is always nice. I realize the 100-400L isn't that fast, but would it perform well in daytime outdoor conditions? I have to be sure I make the right decision seeing as I don't have money to throw around (school is $40,000 a year). Any advice and opinions are welcome...i won't be able to respond to any further questions until I get back from class at 5 30 so please be patient.
