Middle Tennessee State is in jeopardy of losing its Division I status due to lack of interest in its football team, as attendance has fallen below the NCAA's minimum requirement. Like many things NCAA, the attendance minimum is a bizarre rule, unless viewed as a petty means of cartelization. Which keeps it in the land of the bizarre.
MTSU's solution falls into the bizarro category as well: a post-game concert with 1/2 of a rap duo performing. The armchairgm has a reasonable take on this madness.
Update: In the comments section, John Topoleski points out the following piece of chicanery:
Louisiana-Monroe (another Sun Belt conference team) this season played at home game in Little Rock vs. Arkansas. This was a favor to ULM in order to meet the attendence requirement.
The attendance requirement is one heck of a rule, ain't it?
