Mohajir has gone on record to say that we will only play in Little Rock if we still have 6 Jonesboro home games that season. In other words, it would have to be either a 7 home game season, or someone else who gives up the home game for it.

The other issue is that Little Rock sort of just discovered their scheduling problems at War Memorial. St Louis offered us 2 million for our Missouri home game in 2015 that we turned down. Little Rock wanted us to pay to rent the facility.

What is UALR's current athletic budget??? We know that you can have an FBS football/Divisin I athletic program on a >$10 million budget.

They're about 2-3 mil more than UAPB which currently plays football at the FCS level in the SWAC conference.

The numbers at the bottom aren't really helpful. It's comparing apples to oranges as far as I'm concerned, one playing FBS football and more sports, the other not playing football at all and less sports.

I'd rather see their numbers against ULM, the current lowest budget in FBS. If LR were to use their budget model, how far off are they???

Nothing against Little Rock but they just don't seem FBS ready to me. However if they really want to do it I wish them the best.
