According to the articles I pulled up, Yankee Stadium is their long term home.

The Citadel is a public school. It's proper name is The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina.

LIU of the NEC gets an "F" rating. They may not last long in D1.

Holy Cross might have an easier goal: getting M/W hockey into Hockey East. There is talk that they'd move their games off campus to the much bigger DCU Center in downtown Worcester.

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.

They have donors who can step up. It's not like they couldn't upgrade, they can. They just don't feel like compromising basketball operations in any way. That's an administrative or philosophical issue.

The former AD, now a Big East administrator, led a meeting toward press, boosters, and select others. The guy panned a $20 million fundraising project to upgrade the soccer stadium in Chester, then rolled out the $80 million campaign that included renovations to the basketball arena, that included a component for legal fees (because the township would fight them) but wouldn't fix the venue to make it the only one where they played. Guy had renderings and everything.

It said it all about the place...If you can get that kind of coin for an insignificant facelift, imagine if you really wanted to highlight other programs? It's just questionable leadership.

I would not be surprised if Elon is keeping an eye on Liberty's try at FBS. Elon is in a unique situation where they probably could get Wake, Duke, App and Charlotte agreeing to H/H along with payday games against Clemson, NCSU, UNC and Va Tech.

Elon has some money but the likelihood of them moving up is really remote for the foreseeable future. They probably will keep an eye on Liberty just to see how it goes (what works and what doesn't). The next sport for Elon will be men's Lax. It could be really soon but more likely still a few years out.

Even if true, their neighbors will do anything they can to stop it from being built. It's not Philadelphia proper but a suburb that will do what it can to stop any extra racket and noise. What would be ideal is to play at the Eagles' stadium. They should almost be willing to buy land and donate Temple a stadium so they can play at the Linc.

Do that and Villanova may one day be in the ACC.

If they are failing? They would likely merged with LIU-Post to stay at D1. If LIU wants football? They might look at Post campus and merge. I think where Post is at, there are room to expand on.

What about Emory? $6 billion endowment, was one of the potential "Magnolia League" members alongside Duke, Wake, Vandy, Tulane, Rice, and SMU.

They're D3 by choice and could probably make themselves D1 quickly
