We have FBS, FCS, Div II, Div III....is NAIA still around?  I don't see the absurdity of having another level between FBS and FCS.

Idk, we have 2 dominant programs that are fluid in their ways. 
Anytime I think "yawn, boring dominance by the kings" I think of the 70s.  I believe the top 10 teams in the 70s are the top 10 programs, all-time (or not far off). 
Not far off, top 10 by winning percentage from 1970-1979:
  • .877 Oklahoma 
  • .863 Bama
  • .848 Michigan 
  • .820 Nebraska 
  • .814 Penn State 
  • .811 Ohio State 
  • .805 Notre Dame
  • .803 USC
  • .770 Texas
  • .763 Arizona State

My hometown team just won the NAIA national championship. Then their star player declared for the draft. Which, well...

But now, we have Saban tossing out his entire offensive system for something that will put up points.  That passes a lot.  That scores quickly.  And he's remained on top while doing so.  THAT is the amazing part to me.
Amazing what you can do when your backups are better than the other team's starters...

The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) announced that two-time defending national and 10-time defending Great Plains Athletic Conference champion Morningside College will host a first-round playoff game on Saturday, April 17.

The game between the Mustangs (8-0) and Carroll College of Montana (3-1) will be held at Bishop Heelan Memorial Stadium due to the Sioux City Relays occurring at Elwood Olsen Stadium. Kickoff is 1 p.m. and gates will open at 12 p.m.

The problem is that just creates a new bottom.  We split into 1A and 1AA for that reason.  So is it absurd?  No.  Does it just lead to us asking why Vandy, BC, Oregon State, Kansas, etc... are still playing with the helmets in a few years?  Probably

I don’t think anyone is saying it’s an absurd idea. It just address is a problem that is so fine and narrow but not that many people see it as a problem.

Maybe we could just cut it off at the small top group they can actually contend for a national title. Say, the top 25 or 30 teams. Some kind of national league for football.
