Augustana, the D-II school in Sioux Falls, has been discussing D-I membership for a while. They recently hired a new athletic director who was a big fundraiser at Michigan State.  

Click the link below for a podcast discussion.  The PFL is discussed at the 10:30 mark.

From a different article...

(Big donor), a regular on the sidelines at Augie football games, suggested to KWSN in June the Vikings start competing in the non-scholarship Pioneer Football League, which includes schools from coast-to-coast, and then consider a move to scholarship competition after "five or ten years."

...maybe a safe thing to say to people who are not enthusiastic about nonscholarship football.  We'll have to wait and see whether Augie uses the PFL as a stepping stone to Valley football's scholarship league.  As a Midwestern school, I think they have a better chance of staying in the PFL than Mercer or Campbell.  Their current stadium seats 6,500, but could easily be expanded.
