Last I heard they had gotten to 40 scholarships, but that was a long time ago and they could allow the full 63 by now.

About half of the NEC are counters for guarantee games, leveraging 40 grants with 20-23 full aid packages, which is how Wagner gets games with Syracuse, LIU vs. West Virginia, etc.

Take Dayton 35 million in athletic revenue A10 basketball powerhouse. 11k stadium and 600 million dollar endowment yet no scholarships for football. Seems like they could be FBS if they really wanted to.

Two points: I-AA/FCS has no scholarship requirements, and an 11K stadium does not make an I-A/FBS program.

And anyone who studies NCAA accounting practices knows that a $35 million budget does not means $35 million in revenues.
Your right
Plenty of below 35 million dollar budgets in FBS.
Their stadium is too small their not broke and make money from basketball. So They could easily expand it if they wanted to. They don't want to they don't even want to pay for scholarships. CCU had 580 million less of an endowment . A money losing basketball program with around ten thousand less seats and a 9500 seat stadium. That is when they decided to join the SBC.
