While athletic budget clearly is an important factor, maintaining a FBS football program does not need to be that expensive. For example, Bowling Green University fields 17 division 1 athletic teams (7 men's and 10 women's teams) and their football team has had winning programs in 4 of the past 5 years. Their entire athletic budget is only $21.8 million, so the football team's athletic budget is far more modest. It is especially modest if you take into account how athletic scholarships represents their largest expense.

The Ivies in football can maintain lower budgets and be fairly competitive with MAC, Sun Belt, Mountain West, CUSA and AAC. This is similar to our ability to be fairly competitive with lower tier D1 programs in basketball and baseball despite having much smaller budgets than the top tier of D1 sports programs. If the Ivy administrators could support this, we have the financial resources to make it happen.

I agree completely. There are some that think "FBS" and immediately think "SEC"-type money and issues. There is a lot more to FBS than many people think. That is why you and I see that the Ivies could easily be an FBS league.
