We should be hoping they succeed and show a path to the top level
    Not so much. I believe that there should at least be a student body minimum for a school to advance to D1. If you cannot maintain that number whatever it is then your school should automatically be dropped back to D2. I would think a student body population of 10K would be a minimum. This allows the school to at least pay through the use of fees on tuition a good part on the sports.

    But, more so to your point of saying we are naysayers. Example, Just because you can buy a Mercedes car and make the payments doesn't allow any room for repairs and believe me those D1 bills are going to show up.

    I do agree that no one should be held back if they have a solid plan and are not just another eyesore D1 school. University of Incarnate Word, Houston Baptist, and Nichols State are a fine example of D2 schools posing as D1.

        I’m sure you didn’t catch the part about having a solid plan and financial backing. Most don’t.

          By the way, Duke has an enrollment of over 16k, not sure where you got your statistics.

            Equity in Athletics site referenced in another thread. Duke is at about 6,500 undergrad.

              My thoughts are total enrollment of 10k which Duke easily has on top of having sound financial backing.

              My 10k student assessment was so there would be enough student fees to soften the cost of D1. Just a thought. As of now, there are no prerequisites. Just get an invitation from a D1 conference and bring your cash.

                  I was at the regional baseball games today. Nothing new from anyone I talked to.

                    Nothing new. I believe the plan remains 19-20 and 20-21 in the NSIC and D1/Summit in 21-22.

                      Is there a sense of a need to impress around the fandom? Like the stands need to be filled at all times in case summit reps are around?

                        They need to order more hatpins. I went to the bookstore before the game and tried to buy one for my collection, but they were all out. Both of the women who worked there felt bad and even looked in the back for one.

                        Pretty good crowd last night. Big comeback for Augie to win 12-10 after trailing 6-0.

                              Winning a softball NC helps.
