D2 Schools As Candidates To Become D1
http://chronicle.augusta.com/sports/coll...1341089704

Here is an article a few years ago about Augusta State and the consolidation of Georgia schools. They merged with Georgia Medical and Health school, and renamed to Augusta University. Columbus State also mentioned they want to move to D1.

Augusta University
Columbus State
cal.-San Diego
Texas A&M-Commerce
Tarleton State
North Alabama
Long Island-Post
Central State, Ohio
Lindenwood
Oklahoma City University
Bellarmine
Lincoln Memorial
West Florida
Francis Marion
Western Washington
West Texas A&M (building a stadium that could be expanding to 22,000 screams to me that they want back into D1.)
Southern Indiana
Valdosta State
North Georgia
UMSL
Delta State
UA-Huntsville
West Georgia
Central Oklahoma
Indiana, Pa.
Kentucky State
CSU-Pueblo
Grand Valley State
Lemoyne
Harding
Belmont Abbey
Wayne State, Mich.
California Baptist
Cal. Poly-Pomona
Arkansas Tech
Alaska
Metro State
Colorado Mesa
Colorado Mines
Dixie State


Northern Kentucky was rumored to go to D1, and then they came out and said they do not have the money to move up and denied the report, and then they got an invite, and they upgraded to D1. even rumors could be possible candidates because the schools do not want to show their cards right away.

Brevard announced that they will be dropping down to D3 while stillman moves to NAIA. Malone is weighing to drop down to D3.

Urbana University have been sold because of financial problems.

BYU-Hawaii dropped all sports.

McMurry stopped their D2 move up.

Marian, Davenport, Purdue-Calumet, Northern New Mexico, Cumberland, Georgetown Kentucky, and Carroll Montana mentioned that they are applying or could apply or reapply to try D2 again.

Lewis and Clark State College could look to move up to D2.

Rogers State could be a D1 candidate plus they mentioned they would look in the future to add football.

U. Texas-Dallas could move up to d2

South Carolina State could move down to D2.

D2 Schools As Candidates To Become D1
Kentucky State will never be Division I.

If the Atlantic Sun were smart, they would invite Indiana, Kutztown, and West Chester Universities of Pennsylvania and take over the Big South football league. NJIT would then be secure in a bona fide northern quadrant, Kennesaw State would have no incentive to leave, and losing Lipscomb (Horizon, OVC, whatever) would be no big deal. The South Division schools would be easy flights from Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. The North Division could then be rounded out later with 2 schools from the Northeast 10 (which has some names familiar to hockey fans), or perhaps Delaware State (already playing some Atlantic Sun sports) bolts the MEAC.

That's because it's in Division 1 already, and therefore doesn't apply to this thread.


I don't think there's any way that Central State will be in Division I unless it merges with Wilberforce, and gets a whole lot more money. They are having so much financial trouble right now that any move in the forseeable future would be unrealistic. Not only that, but it's not like there isn't a cautionary tale in the same county about what happens when Division II success leads to Division I failure. In the 80's, Wright State made the national semifinals or finals in a few different sports multiple times, including winning a Division II men's basketball title in 1983, and being a baseball and soccer DII powerhouse. After moving up to Division I, they've made the NCAA men's basketball tournament twice in 29 years, the women's tournament once, and haven't moved beyond the first weekend in the baseball tournament. I think DavidSt doesn't realize that some schools would rather have successful DII programs that mediocre DI programs.

Any of those Georgia schools will have a hard time since the USG system is placing caps on athletic subsidies.

True. They'll play 3 FBS games a year before dropping down.

UNA has some serious issues in front of it. They would have to double their athletic budget.

They are unlikely to make a jump in the next few years.
