However, enrollment <2500 doesn't bode well for a future in D-1.

Not sure whether that is the absolute smallest enrollment in D-1


That would be VMI. Total enrollment of 1700.

Thanks JeffConn.

So with 2000 students, it's possible to fund D-1 athletics.
But 60+ scholarships for FCS is expensive (CSU has wisely decided against sponsoring football).
Chicago State's travel in the WAC is just insane....

So WAC is losing CSUB to the Big West. Chicago State could drop down from D-1.
I feel like IPFW could get an invitation to the Horizon (surely they would accept).
Would that leave WAC + Summit at 14 ?
I think they should talk....
Summit wants no part of Chicago State (they previously kicked them out).
Summit can replace IPFW with UMKC, really hurting the WAC.
However, if that happens, the Summit's numbers (9) are still rather tenuous,
and there aren't a lot of expansion candidates other than out west in the WAC.
Would Northern Colorado leave the Big Sky for the Summit / MVFC(#12) ?
