The one thing hurting Badin's argument is that they have 61 baseball players in their program. I'm betting that would place them in the top 150 baseball programs based on participation.

They are also upset about the disparity between the largest school and smallest school in DI. While they have a point, competitive balance isn't the cause of that. Keeping divisions equal with around 200 teams will mean that the largest will always be 3-4 times larger than the smallest school. The only way to correct that is to go to a smaller number of teams in DI like they do in football.
