Define DI and DII[edit]

Why not define what constitutes a Division I school and a Division II school, it has something to do with amount of spectators at a University's home gym or field.

It doesn't have anything to do with the number of spectators. It's just a matter of which level of competition the school chooses to compete at. Scholarship limits are the biggest factor, for football, Division I schools can give up to 85 scholarships, Division II can give up to 36 scholarships, while Division III schools cannot give any scholarships.--RLent 22:37, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

Shouldn't this be NCAA Division II?[edit]

I think the Division II name on this article is confusing. NCAA Division II would be more appropriate. Americasroof (talk) 17:39, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Agreed. "Division II" is far too common a designator for an article about the NCAA usage to get by without a disambiguation. I'm moving it to Division II (NCAA).oknazevad (talk) 05:52, 3 October 2009 (UTC)
