I always thought the Power 5 or 6 conferences should be Division 1, The MAC size schools should be D2's. Current D2's should be D3's, Etc. With 8 team football playoff tournaments in each divisions. And, Especially, Different conference referees doing the playoff games, So there's no further conflict of interest, As we have had this past post season involving the eSECpn officials.
LOL..the Grand Poohbah of collegiate football speaks.
So you understood the question Willard, but you didn't answer it. I watched NDSU win a D1 natty again this year, but was it a 1-AA or FBS natty when you were standing around the water cooler Monday morning talking about it?
I didn't look very hard, but here are just two websites who choose not to use your Roman numerals... and if you don't recognize what NDSU has done in recent years, then you won't understand why they open with D1 Oregon next fall.
Meters? LOL! And FWIW, I often refer to that level as 1-AA by choice.
