What is it with the national sports media? I understand DIII is pretty much off the radar except for the occassional fun fodder stat or ridiculous play, but do these people understand the NCAA so little that they think teams can just jump divisions the way players can?
In today's BMOC Gene Woj suggests Grambling can no longer afford FCS football and that, "As painful as it might be for the Grambling football purists, perhaps the administration should consider dropping the program to, say, Division III, or dropping the program altogether."
This implies that DIII football has teams with filthy, rotten, uncared for equipment and training rooms, lack of resources, and doesn't involve long bus rides. It also supposes that Grambling could just up and move the football program, ignoring that all other sports have to be in the same division.
It just continues to amaze me that these guys don't understand the things they cover. Maybe he doesn't need to know about DIII, but Gene Woj should certainly understand the rules about how the NCAA is structured.
