    More NCAA divisions

    I really think it is time for the NCAA moguls to find a way to level the old playing field. Maybe more Divisions?,revenue sharing of some type? There is NO way the ISU'
    S of the world can keep up with the really,really BIG boys with many wealthy alums etc.
    What do you think??

    The NCAA is looking at expanding, but it has nothing to do with the Division 1 Schools.

    Never happen. The Floridas, Texases, Oklahomas, and USCs of the world would never allow it - and the NCAA bows to these types.

    You really think that would happen? If you were the Northern Illinois AD, you would turn down your payday of $1 million to play at Wisconsin and make enemies of them? Really?

    Remind me how well that's worked out for Div I-AA (other than the fact they crown a true champion every year)...

    Re: More NCAA divisions

    Everyone acts as though the NCAA is some sort of independent organization that controls the schools that belong to it.

    Nothing could be further from the truth. The NCAA IS the schools that belong to it. It isn't some sort of independent 3rd party.

    I love the way it's set up currently. The playing field doesn't need to be level. That's part of what makes it great.

    Everytime the "let's make it fair" crowd shows up, stuff gets worse. The NFL stinks today because all the teams are mediocre. High School Basketball was ruined in my home state (Indiana) because they didn't like seeing the big schools win all the time.

    Maybe I'm weird for thinking that it's not all about wins and losses, but about the game and playing it and enjoying it.

    Re: More NCAA divisions

    I also hate the things that are done in this world at the moment in the name of "fairness." But to me it is completely unfair that non-bcs teams have virtually 0 chance of winning a National Championship.

    That isn't true at all. The NFL model has done a great job of disallowing monetary monopolies of talent, like the Yankees have, while providing a greatly competitive atmosphere that is still largely driven by teams willingness to spend.

    Top to bottom, there is a huge difference between the Oakland Raiders who will be, probably, a top 5 salary cap spending team and my Steelers who will probably lag behind them in spending.
