Faculty at schools can be very strange creatures that can sometimes unintentionally undermine their own employer. (See Liberty Law Professor)

Heck, its everywhere. A couple of years ago, UCA's faculty actually voted in a faculty senate meeting to drop the Bears to D2. The Senate had no actual power over the issue, and they were generally laughed at...but they felt they needed to make their opinion known...so they did. And UCA got negative press for it, despite the fact there was no chance they would ever go back to D2.

And UMass faculty did so.

And if you go back, remember that the faculty at AState went to the Board of Trustees demanding football be dropped back when Col Klink was on the Board and cited the amount of money that would be saved and he countered by asking if they had factored in the million plus in contract penalties for failing to play contracted games, the impact of potentially needing to seek another league, the expectation of fans that any "savings" be expended to improve other sports. They gave up and sulked away.

Ah, we've been there. One of our professors even had a piece published in Slate (or HuffPo) claiming that sexual assaults on campus will increase with a move to FBS...I literally can't make this up.

I saw that but didn't pay any attention to what school it was.
