How does a Div 1 Conference decide which schools are part of it?
When one school completely dominates a Conference, should they be bumped up to a different Conference?
Thanks for the question. As far as NCAA Division 1 conferences go, they are mostly based on geography. For example, the Big Ten Conference features Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska (as of the fall of 2011), Northwestern, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue, and Wisconsin. The members of the Big Ten are primarily Midwest based. The Southeastern Conference features twelve schools located in the South like Kentucky, Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Vanderbilt, Louisiana State, Mississippi, Mississippi State, and Arkansas. Right now, NCAA Division 1 is divided into two categories, Football Bowl Subdivision and Football Championship Subdivision. FBS is your top 120 NCAA schools from the major confernce which play in the bowl games. FCS is your smaller schools in terms of football like Montana, Southern Illinois, and Delaware. These schools have a 32 team playoff to decide their championship. My hope is that the NCAA will drop the bowl games and go to a playoff format. I hope this helps answer your question.
Thank you for your response but I was actually referring to women's soccer. If a single team dominates a conference year after year, would it be appropriate for that school to be bumped up to a more challenging conference?
