Anyone think that those 2 conferences being DIII is crap?

I do for 2 reasons.

1) They're state supported schools that are playing against a bunch of small private schools. They have an unfair financial advantage.

2) Since they're state schools, their mission should be to give the state's high school graduates an oppertunity to continue their education. They could be awarding scholarships to in state athletes that aren't good enough to play DI. But since they're DIII they don't award any scholarships.


Anyone else agree?

I agree totally. Not only that, but also that most conferences should upgrade to Division II. However, it will depend on the "true geographic regional alignment" for both Division II and Division III. At any cost, I like the idea of that the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) and the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) joining D-II.

Let's see if the rest of the guys think about this.

Adding athletic scholarships is expensive, even for public schools. If the private schools feel they're at a disadvantage, there's alway the NAIA, or perhaps it's time to subdivide Division III. Division II might not even be viable in the long run since they have most of the expenses of Division I with only a fraction of the revenue.

Just because a school is public doesn't mean it can automatically have an athletic budget anywhere near the size of the D-I schools. Most of these state schools have to split off the small chunk that's left over after the larger campuses get their share, so if they REALLY have that much of an advantage over the private schools, maybe the private schools aren't managing themselves NEARLY as well as they ought to be.
