Did Birmingham Southern go D3 so they could have football? Anybody in the know? Hardly seems like the budget cutting move they have portreyed this as. Almost appears to be a crusade by their president around amateurism. Anybody in the know or have an opinion? Another question to ask is should there only be a limited D1 conference of about 70 to 90 teams who can really carry if profitably? and everybody else at the true amateur D3 level?
