Although Bakersfield is the most uneducated mid-sized city in the USA. Of the top-100 US metros, it finishes dead last in % of adults with a college degree (14.7%).

And your first paragraph has an important part of DI in it it -- identity. So many D I schools have none, even in their own hometowns or metro areas. No wonder some have zero aupport, low attendance etc. Id rather be a Bakersfield than one of 10 DI schools in a huge metro area, and still unknown

And they will pull down some legitimate D-I programs along with them. Enough is enough.


The problem is that the best schools from D2 are being blocked from moving up while schools with small enrollments get a spot in conferences. There are P5 programs who do not belong in a P5 football conference anymore.

Football isn't the problem here, basketball is. Everybody wants a piece of the NCAAT money. Do away with automatic tournament bids for conference champions, and then it doesn't matter how many schools there are in D-I, or how many conferences.

If there is going to be a limit of 32 conferences because of the tournament, then those conferences will just keep getting bigger - too big. Without the autobids, most D-I conferences would revert to smaller, more compact regional leagues. Which is the way it should be.

But if we believe what sometimes appears to be a majority sentiment on this board, God himself ordained that if there is a division championship, every conference must be represented in the tournament, no matter how weak they are. I'm not in that majority.

I wouldn't worry about that. IMO we are much closer to all the money in the sport blowing the top off of the NCAA's fa├žade of "amateurism" than we are to the big boys leaving just because they're tired of throwing a few pennies to marginal D-I schools.

Yes! We have to keep embarrassments like UMBC beating Virginia from happening somehow! LOL 05-nono
