It's the same at the lower end, as well.

I went to a university where we were absolutely terrible, so who did we play opening game? Someone in the top 10, so they can build their confidence & test things out. Why did my school do it? Because they only thought of the short term. They got paid to get the shit kicked out of them. By doing so, they lose support from the community, have difficulty getting students to attend, and much more. They are laughed at by so many and rightly so. What they should do is drop to Div II, but they won't. If they ever do, they'll see that things will improve exponentially in every aspect.
