If they have to reduce their reliance on student fees, then they can...and probably will do what ODU did. Just raise the student fees to increase total revenue but take the smaller percentage of the total. That way, they increase their total take of student fees and thus the lower percentage would make up for it getting more money:

70% of 100 = 70. Thus if they increase their student fees by 25% but only take 55% of 125 = 68.75. Or, if the FBS TV contract gives them more money and they increase ticket prices to games to see their FBS team play and get approval to increase student fees by say, 10%-15%, that might more than offset the reduced reliance requirement on student fees.
Also, JMU is one of the few times.....like Delaware that actually makes money....or at least comes close to breaking even on their current FCS team. Perhaps UVa might be willing to alternate home game weekends with JMU so they could "share" fans who might be interested....at least for the short term.

Is it 70/55% of fees? Or 70/55% of AD budget?

I don’t remember where it was, but just in the last week or two the students at one school voted against raising student fees to do something similar.

FBS independents Liberty & New Mexico State & FCS members Jacksonville State & Sam Houston State likely joining Conference USA as all-sports members, sources told
@ActionNetworkHQ. Addition of those 4 schools will help replenish C-USA after recent losses

JMU certainly didn’t mind this when other schools left the CAA.
I remember that was part of why we made the move to the a10 immediately.

It's a known rule in the Caa. If you don't like it try to change it while you're in the league or time your exit so it's not a problem. Play by the rules dukes!

I guess Liberty is thinking it will be too hard to schedule a complete season as an independent moving forward? Or maybe they think it's a better launching pad to greener pastures? Absolute dump of a conference...
