That drop in funding was done in 2015-2016.  SCSU is not dropping to D2.  Many alumni wanted that after 2015 because other priorities took precedence over athletics.  However, a feasibility study was done and it was determined that SCSU should stay D1 and in the MEAC.  Slowly but surely the school will return to normal.



Thanks, Almighty.  All some folks want you guys to do is leave the MEAC.  :no:

So what's the current funding? It was a little over $7 million in 2019 BEFORE covid.

I hope that this all works out. I know about two decades ago when State had a larger student enrollment their entire athletic department was competitive within the conference.
