I'm not saying that the following would happen, but could the Ivy League move up if they could meet the ticket sale requirements (a la EMU)? I can see a world where Cornell plays 7 Ivy games, Syracuse, Bucknell/Colgate, and a random game. The same goes for UConn and Yale, Harvard and BC, Princeton and Rutgers, Dartmouth and Brown w/ UMass, Penn and Temple, and Columbia w/ Army.
FBS programs must award an average of 76.5 scholarships (90% of the maximum) over a two-year period.

I thought The Citadel is a military school?

Dayton and Fordham both are large enrollment of students which both might be able to go.

Yes. The Citadel is a public military school. Has been since it started in 1842. They also have a graduate college with secular students.

The Pioneer, Ivy and Patriot Leagues are unlikely to produce any interest in FBS -- these all have money. Villanova stands out, but they have never been enticed.

Villanova doesn't have a stadium of FBS caliber to play in. They better stay good in basketball because that's all they have.

Where would they play, Yankee Stadium? Citi?

NYU won't go D1. But they'd have stadium options if they did. They could play in the Meadowlands, Red Bull arena, Columbia's stadium, etc.

None are ideal (obviously), but all are possible. Still, to Chappy's post, NYU isn't going DI.

But they increase the capacity and go FBS. The time the Big East was talking with them is they wanted them to do a large stadium. Now they they could do something smaller in the 20k range and be fine for FBS.

Holy Cross has a great football history. They have renewed their rivalry series with BC and have scheduled UCONN and Syracuse as well. Don't see it going past that, but if they can win some of those games, who knows what kind of interest may be stirred up?

Except that they don't have the facilities and are unlikely to gain the facilities, unless NYCFC builds a soccer-specific stadium in The Bronx, which is unlikely to happen at this point. They're boxed in, New York is expensive to build in and hard to get around.

Haven't kept up with NYCFC 's stadium build. Will they build anywhere or play at Yankee Stadium forever.
