    New College Division.

    What is this all about:

    Power conferences will play by own rules within new division - NCAA Football - Sporting News

    THe writer is trying so hard to be funny and nuanced that I can't find the point or any facts. Does anyone else have more details?

    Re: New College Division.

    Bowlsby attacks NCAA; suggests Division 4 football is possible - CBSSports.com

    Basically the Big 5(ACC, SEC, Big 10, Big 12, Pac 12) would leave the NCAA for football and create there own governing entity and play by the rules they want. AAC and Mountain West have said they would want to join this division as well.

    It would be very similar to the split between FBS and FCS. What would most likely happen is the Big 5 leave. The upper crust of FCS is elevated to FBS to join MAC and Sun Belt.

    Re: New College Division.

    I dont know that theyd leave the NCAA... just force the NCAA to create the new division..

    And really the division isnt anything new.. its really getting Div1 back to what it used to be before things like attendance requirements were relaxed and allowed anyone and everyone that wanted to to join FBS.

    Page 174 staring around post #2597 on through today. Mods, may want to merge with Mega-thread Part II.

    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Until further notice, the Big 12 tournament is best. There's an experience here. Not just the teams -- the feel, the vibe, the establishments. Iowa State not only won the pregame -- filling the nearby Power & Light District -- it won the whole damn scene.

    Mega-threads are useless for finding info unless you catch up and read everything in it every day.

    Agreed. Nothing more annoying than sifting thru hundreds of pages to get info.

    Re: New College Division.

    It sounds like leaving the NCAA is a last resort. The NCAA will have every chance to reform before talk of leaving gets serious.

    It is all on the last few pages of the thread and literally the only thing that has been discussed in the megathread since Big XII media days. That thread hasn't been moving very fast at all since last summer.

    If it's topical enough to warrant a new thread, then it's probably topical enough to click "Last Page".

    Re: New College Division.

    Nerds.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    Well, this is a new thread. Deal? That said:

    Has JP or Pres. Leath issued any press releases. I've been searching.

    This will be good for us. No more filling out our non-conference schedule with Rhode Island Culinary Arts Academy. Cash is a non-issue. We're a member of the "haves" and not "have nots." That sounds really smug. But we deserve it. Our (we) boosters and fans deserve it. SDSU, USD and all of the other schools bit off more than they could chew. Sorry.

    Re: New College Division.

    And how... does this actually deal directly with Big 12 expansion? Even if they created D4 is there anything ANYONE has said to make anyone think that us expanding beyond 10 teams is going to happen in the next 5 years?

    Put me on the side of Mega Thread being stupid. Kill it, just like 1.0 died.

    That may be true, but isn't very inviting/welcoming/easy for new users who may not understand that.
