And it would be phased in, so the impact would be on kids still in high school. It would be reduced to say 82 the first year, 78 the 2nd, 74 the 3rd and 70 the 4th. And those 2000 kids would generally get FCS scholarships and those kids would get Division II scholarships. It would be the Division II level kids who would tend to get shut out.

I'm with you bullet. 70 sounds just fine to me.

That's 25 new signees, then with attrition and graduation after year four, you get 17, 12, 8, 8. Which is 28 fifth, fourth, and third year players ... well more than enough to win ball games. Plus first and second year players can meaningfully contribute these days.

Or 25, 18,15,12, if we ever get back to four year cycles.
