"BUT, what if we leave the marching band out, cut some underperforming academic programs, increase our athletics fees, and pitch our wishes to the state to increased subsidies? FEASIBLE!"

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.

That was the point.
Comparing how much UALR has to spend to become an FBS with more sports and more rides.

Sure they might slide by on increasing the operating budget by $3 millionish but how viable is a start-up that is getting bashed and isn't spending to get better?

How do you gain traction in Arkansas if you aren't spending to compete with AState?

Do we as a conference want to see UALR doing bare minimum and screwing over the rest of the league in CFP performance money ratings and bad RPI because they are doing the least possible?

There are three types of studies.

1. School wants to add and hires someone to prove they are right to do it.

2. School doesn't want to add and hires someone to prove it is a bad idea.

3. School is getting some gruff about needing to add it, and they want someone to price tag on it to see where the chips may fall.

Wichita State about 10 years ago did a study to prove they couldn't bring it back. Then more recently had one done to prove they could. Then AAC called and now they seem to be pretending the favorable study never happened.

UALR ain't got the money. So they are either doing a study to prove it isn't feasible. Or they are doing it to set a price tag and they'll hang up and listen to see if anyone will write a check.

LOL...

You can laugh but it was accurate for USA. We had a study like #2 around 2001-2002 where it was destined for failure before it started. It was set up by a USA board that didn't believe football could work. Guess what? They said no to football. Then after several years our board, which had shifted to a more football-friendly group, yielded to pressure from Mobile and the student body petition to add football, and performed another study and ta-da, we have football.
