Article out of StLouis(previously posted in another thread)discussing how Missouri is faring financially after leaving the Big 12 for the SEC at http://www.stltoday.com/sports/college/ ... d6fd4.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


That's awesome. They wouldn't be making that kind of bank in the Big Ten for a couple of years based on their share schedule. I know it takes some faith and confidence to say "in a few years, we'll be making comfortably more," but in Missouri's case (and unlike Nebraska), they've already made good coin and will continue to do so.

Here's hoping the SEC can break into NC or VA and blow the roof off this revenue war thing.

Article with comments from SEC Commissioner Slive regarding the question of changing rules for freshman eligibility play. There's also included comments from B1G Commissioner Delany. (The State, Columbia, SC, AP Sports Writer R. D. Russo 3/02/2015).

Maybe its just me but this talk of freshman ineligibility just seems like scheme for the big conferences to be able to have more scholarship players than the standard 85. It seems like Delaney likely wants to have 85 players (Sophomore-Senior) under scholarship and then a freshmen class under scholarship in addition to that. The poorer conferences can barely afford 85--there's no way thy can do 100 or 110.

Div. 1 FCS have 63 scholarship limits for fb. Div. 1 FBS have scholarship limits for 85.
That's the main disparity in why a FCS school is usually at a bigger disadvantage when playing a FBS school. And of course, most FBS schools get the stronger athletes by comparison.

I know this wouldn't be popular, but what if a limit of say, 75, is applied for all NCAA Div. 1 FCS (the ones that could) and FBS? That could certainly better justify competition between current FCS and FBS schools. It would spread the talent around even more. The power schools wouldn't like that though.

Here are the current scholarship limits for college men and women sports:
