    The Pac12 for boys soccer is really the Pac6, or Pac5 with San Diego State and that's a power5 conference. smh. No work being done to develop either pathway imo, the pro or the college pathway. The opportunity is very limited for boys... Maybe even more so for girls, who have a whole movement going for them to develop the programs in the nation, even if there are "bumps" in the road.

    I don't disagree , except for the part that "it wouldn’t be fair for some schools to have more scholarships than others". That's not true. The schools still have the same number of scholarships per gender. The schools can chose to allocate the scholarships however they want per sport. Schools can chose to maintain their football programs or allocate scholarships to other sports. It should be choice. The NCAA shouldn't be putting its thumb on the scale to help a minority of the institutions for the NCAA's bottom line.

    If the NCAA doesn't worry abut it's bottom line and the revenue sports, would that not affect all sports? How do you provide scholarships to anyone if there is no money for them?

    If they were spread out, more girls of a higher caliber would have an opportunity to participate in DA without the need to drive an hour+.

    Hum JoeBieber went AWOL in Feb and reappeared on May 3, the same day you created an account. I don’t think that is a coincidence. And he was always using word play just like a slimy attorney that defended the Aneheim Surf false birth certificate issue.

    What I find very telling is that you imitate me. You know imitation it the sincerest form of flattery? Please continue. Everyone that knows you is enjoying laughing at you.

    That might work at the large public schools where there are enough students to charge a small fee of a grand or two. At the smaller private schools that would be a nonstarter as the fee could easily top $10k (think of s Notre Dame, Stanford or Duke).

    The schools fudge the numbers when it comes to expenses. My kid's school weirdly had exactly as many expenses as revenue. I love the school but that is about as obvious as the name of Cohen's LLC "Essential Consultants."

    How would it impact money available for sports at UCI, UCSB, or the vast majority of schools and leagues around the country? They don't have profitable sports programs. How many sports programs are profitable in the WCC? Maybe Gonzaga basketball makes money? In my mind, you are really referring to Alabama and dozen or so schools - as well as the coffers of the NCAA. Frankly, most non-football sports programs are pretty cheap to run. So to say that football or basketball is paying for the other programs isn't persuasive IMO-especially since so many non-football schools or small-time football schools have funding for broader sports programs.

    And I'm not really calling for no scholarship cap at all. But most men's sports are capped at less than the amount of field players, while football has scholarships for 8 times the number of field players. That doesn't make any sense. If the Pac 12 wants to remain the football league, that's great. But why not allow the WCC or other leagues to become the great soccer league or flourish in other sports and provide other athletic opportunities? That's all I'm really getting at.

    Interesting article from a writer who critiqued bio banding and then got a call and had a conversation with the originator who happens to be with US Soccer now. Good read to give background.

    Also, this has started to happen on the boys side also, but I didn't read too much on the article I saw giving details.

    U.S. Soccer Bio-Banding revisited with High Performance Director James Bunce via @OnefootballEN. Read it here:
