For starters, to move up to FBS, we'd need to average 15k/game.  Before even considering the move, we need to expand our facilities and boost the fan base.  Obviously being in the Top 25 is a great start to that.

While we work on that requirement, we are going to watching VERY closely how Liberty and UMass fare.  If they move up and then flounder (both by results and financially), the push to stay the big fish in the small pond will be major.

I think inevitably we are going to move up, but I don't really expect it happening in the near future.  Now bumping to the CAA or A-10 is a very strong possibility as a "transitional step".  Would not be shocked if that happened sooner rather than later.
