Villanova Bigeast Football opportunity


It seems as though the Bigeast is getting frustrated with Villanova's time line on a decision to take their football program up to the BCS Division 1 level (Commissioner statement 1/25/11).  My question is how long does it take to figure out the finances and location of play to make a decision?  Its been estimated that Villanova is losing 4 million currently per year with a program that has a hard time filling the current stadium of 12,000 seats.  What will be the losses if the program goes up to the division 1 championship level based on the Bigeast attendence minimum of 15,000?  Its time for the board to make a statement on the progress it has made and explain what the criteria is that they are using to make this decision or what the challenges are.  Why would they move the program up to the Bigeast and incur additional loses that can't be made up or hopefully increased from TV, gate and increased Alumni donations except to protect other sports at Villanova in the future.  The sports programs at the university  has  nationally compeditive teams in most sports and a major money maker in the nationally ranked basketball program.
