Posted something similar on Dermott thread on 2A board - unless concrete rules on participation are put in place for the next cycle, 8-man will become nothing but teams who can't compete in 11-man.

Where are these schools that were supposedly going to start football and play 8-man?  Frankly, I don't think they exist.  The start-up costs of 8-man and 11-man are virtually identical.  Still need field, equipment, staff, etc.  I do not see any current basketball-only program adding football at 8-man level.

I do know there is a push from some - coaches/admin/etc. - to move to 6-man instead of 8-man.  If it is truly about low participation, that would be a better move.
