darell1976 Posted July 22, 2014 Share Posted July 22, 2014 Can someone tell me the point of the 15,000 attendance requirement? If its to keep smaller schools with very little attendance from being in the "FBS", then why isn't there an attendance requirement for DI basketball. Attendance in basketball is a lot worse than football with schools averaging 300 or so fans...and their DI? If its about money, is the NCAA making money on FBS teams not making the 15k (Mac, Sun Belt), along with schools with 300 fans watching their .500 team make the dance. If anything make the requirement in basketball 1,000 then schools can either upgrade, go to DII, or make a subdivision in basketball with their own dance. http://fs.ncaa.org/Docs/stats/m_basketball_RB/Reports/attend/2014.pdf Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
