RE: IF I'm reading the NCAA bylaws right, new conference takes 8 yrs to earn autobid
Quote:20.02.5 Multisport Conference. A Division I multisport conference shall satisfy the requirements of this
section. (Adopted: 1/15/11 effective 8/1/11)
20.02.5.1 Minimum Number of Members. A multisport conference shall be composed of at least seven
active Division I members. The member conference shall include at least seven active Division I members that
sponsor both men’s and women’s basketball. (Adopted: 1/15/11 effective 8/1/11)

does this mean every division I multisport conference must sponser basketball? or is this only the section about gaining an autobid for the tourney?

1. so what is the original rule for any breakaway new conference on this subject

The old, pre-2011 rule was 7 schools playing together for 5 years.

Quote:2. what is the new rule on this

An existing conference has to have 7 Division I members.
A new conference has to have 7 members together for 8 years--in the new conference.

Maybe that rule could go away? Lets say schools want to restart old conferences that may still have NCAA credits that have not gone to another conference.

Big West FBS credits
Southern FBS credits
WAC FBS credits
Great West credits
SWC credits
RMAC credits
Lone Star credits
MVC credits
Metro Credits
And so forth.

Yes. No BBall, no Division 1. After all, the NCAA tourney media money is what pays the bills.
