I think there are two major disparities. The first is the mega schools vs. the sub 400 schools in D1. If you have 3 times as many kids, you really shouldn't ever lose. People on this board have argued that it's unfair for "D1" schools to be in D2, but the difference in population is no where near as big as in D1.
The other area I see as being unbalanced is smaller catholic schools who can recruit/attract a more athletic population. If both schools are at 200, having a few more athletes makes a big difference.
I think, especially as schools like Berea and Midpark combine their athletic teams, there needs to be a top division for mega schools. I'm not sure what to do about the other problem.
