Georgia Southern announced today that the resolution to increase student fees has passed. The immediate result from the $25 portion of the fee will be a 6,000 seat stadium expansion. In reality, they don’t have anywhere in the FBS to go (like us). So this will just help them compete better at the FCS level.
The $75 FBS fee won’t even be implemented unless they get an FBS invite. It will cover the additional scholarships necessary and the addition of several sports.
“Women’s golf, women’s rifle and women’s sand volleyball would be viable as a program to bring Georgia Southern to the minimum number of sports required (16) for FBS reclassification.”
Our advantage over Georgia Southern was that we were better prepared facility-wise for FBS than they were. We also have a lot of name recognition from our Michigan win. It looks like Georgia Southern is doing their best to equalize the facility race. In the end, hopefully we both end up in the same FBS conference.
70.4% in favor of the $25 Stadium Expansion increase.
61.2% in favor of the $75 FBS fee increase.
74.7% in favor of the $10 Sustainability fee increase.
