    I would like to see Montana move up. Seems like there aren't any D-1A teams in that part of the US.

      Speaking of moving up, JMU is building a new stadium and will be moving up soon aswell.

        All the students there think it is going to move up, especially after the '05 season when I was there. But the students usually have no idea what is going on.

        Where did you hear portland state was supposed to? Unfortunately it couldn't happen within the 3 years I am there.

          there was a story on SportsCenter with Jerry Glanville, their new coach, and he was talking about how he wants to move up to D-1A with Portland State and compete with the other Oregon schools.

          I think they have the stadium and facilities but not complete monetary backing.

            Ya, that was supposed to be on 2 times before, both times it got pre-empted, then I didn't get to see it when it actually finally aired.

            I am guessing that is the case, because they have one of the biggest 1aa stadiums in the nation.

              Yeah, I think their stadium is slightly over 20k people but rather nice. And they made is seem like the entire town turns out for their home games. It was interesting to see that since Glanville showed up he has called as many as 20 D1A coaches about playing a game this next year and on. He was talking about playing them for exposure and money to help build up to a move to D-1A.

              I wonder what conference would take them? I'd like to think WAC or Sun Belt.

                They'd be an independent for a few years but they could get a WAC invite or even a MWC invite. They are out of Sun Belt territory

                  Idaho is in the Sun Belt, I don't see why Portland State cannot be.

                    Good point. The Sun Belt will likely add Western Kentucky though since they are a member in all other sports
