    APSU has done wonders with their stadium renovation. The one at EKU will be amazing.

    Looks like Jax State has the facilities to move to FBS. They've had strong teams over the past several years.
    Wonder how many of these OVC teams are considering the move up? EKU has been talking about it for years now.

    I'm not sure on who else may want to go FBS. EKU is moving in that direction. The school has to find a conference to play in then has two years to do the below. The attendance is a big issue for most schools wanting to make the move. EKU would have to almost double their attendance,

    The primary NCAA criteria are as follows:
    - Average 15,000 in actual or paid attendance for home football games, as measured once every two years on a rolling basis.
    - Scholarship level must be at or near 85 full grants-in-aid.
    - Play at least 60 percent of all games against FBS programs with at least five home games against FBS opponents (during the second year of reclassification).

    EKU would be perfect for the MAC.

    I did notice that EKU has two Thursday night games this season. That should help some with the attendance requirement.

    With their upgrades we may see that happen.

    Arrested in Richmond for PI and disorderly conduct. Shouldn't be an issuse if the bar fight/dorm fight wasn't a issue.

    Some people just never seem to learn. I bet he was profiled by the local PD......

    He threw a glass bottle into the middle of the street in front of an officer.

    Isn't that profiling in Richmond? I thought everybody did that.
