"Sac State has more "issues" long term relative to football stability."
Budgetary...CSU probably hit harder than UC, although committment appears to be there from admin. to continue football support.
Attendance...No better than Davis, who should get a bump from moving to D-I, although no guarantee.
Competitive...Davis has been D-II power, SacSt. hasn't won anything in a long time, although perhaps a change to Great West Football will help?
Don't get me wrong. Sac State, if it remains competitive and viable long term could be an answer for the WAC. It just appears that UCD could step in front of them with continued success and cut in front very readily.
Not meant to be a knock on Sac.St. Just appears to be the current reality.
