But as the grandparents are dying, and the kids are getting older, there is absolutely a part of me that wants to go back to Texa...

re: How financially screwed are FCS and FBS schools? - LSUFanHouston
A lot of FBS/FCS just won't play sports this year. Even with a full schedule and some cupcake money, their ability to pay for increased testing/cleaning/etc was going to be limited at best. Without those game checks, unless some of these schools have a big booster, I just don't see it happening. ...
