I have attended a D I-AA football game. It was NDSU vs. SDSU. I did not think that the gap between either of those teams and upper level DII teams was "wide". I am not denying that there is a gap. I think anyone who says otherwise is foolish (as posted a number of times). But its not this crater that you make it out to be. I know you didn't get a chance to witness the DII playoffs first hand the last few years you guys were around, but there are some pretty good teams in there that could play D 1-AA football.
