They're just biding their time until the economy is better. Then, they'll be asking Richmond for $500 Million for a 65,000 seat stadium and a football team, to match up with UVa and VaTech, claiming the need for football parity is fundamental under the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution, as interpreted by some TeaBag Trustees. And they'll hire Howard Schnellenger to coach them up.
Then, they'll rename themselves The University of Northern Virginia, after Robert E. Lee's army.
Not kidding. They've got hubris, bigtime, over there.
