The Rams can’t overcome the financial hurdle in getting to D1. They needed a Sugar Daddy to step up, and there isn’t one coming forward. The costs are more than they can bear. I hate it for them, as I was hoping they could make the jump and keep some local talent home to play D1 that might go elsewhere to play I-AA football or low-major D1 basketball. This will not affect our game with them, as they will remain D1 for the rest of this season.
