Re: 2012-2020: Future of Stony Brook Football

Also, let me add one more point:

With the current instability of the College Football world, and the effects that it will have on the FCS. We will likely see in the future more teams move up to the FBS. Unfortunately the FCS is not economically viable. Its not sustainable due to the lack of revenue it produces for over 90% of its teams. With the exception of a maybe 2-10 schools that have strong fan bases, everyone else looses money by having an FCS program. We have seen what has happened to to other universities having Football programs at the FCS level. They either disappear (like in the case of cross-island rival Hofstra) or they are choosing to move up (like UMass which is currently completing its transition). The more FCS teams that move up to the FBS, the more the talent level suffers, and that will also take more fans away from the FCS. 

If Stony Brook already made the commitment to offer 65 full-scholarship funding in football, then FBS football would be the next logical step
