    FBS programs that deserve to be regulated to FCS

    New Mexico State - They haven't been to a bowl game in over 50 years.
    Idaho - Theyre indoor dome stadium is extremely too small, it'll be hard for them to expand.
    Georgia State - hard to compete with in-city rival Georgia Tech and sometimes Georgia, why start a football program and move to FBS level too quickly?
    Eastern Michigan - haven't been to a bowl game since 1987 and too hard competiting with neighboring Michigan Wolverines

    FCS and Div II or III programs that deserve to be promoted to FBS

    James Madison - fancy stadium
    Montana - big stadium and big fan base(FBS style)
    Schools from MEAC and SWAC that have larger stadiums 20,000 or larger(ill still allow Grambling because of their storied history)
    ND State - Although they play in a tiny dome stadium, it is extremely fancy(FBS style) and they have a great record against FBS teams
    West Texas A&M - they have large stadium enough to enter FBS(if they expand it a little bigger). that school developed mostly players who became popular in the wrestling ring.

    Add UMass to that list. They don't even have a stadium, they have to borrow Gillette from the Patriots. Officially they get 15,000 in for those games but I don't believe it's even that high. They're 1-15 since joining.

    Is Samford FBS? Too lazy to look it up.

    Sam Houston State honestly is more deserving of being FBS than Texas State in my opinion.

    the Bearkats would have to expand their stadium to 25k or more in order to play in FBS. and Samford is a FCS level program

    I'm ignorant about stadium sizes, but i do feel Sam Houston puts a more competitive product on the field than Texas State for example.
