Just to clarify, do you think people would be OK with having a D2, D3, or NAIA basketball team just so that we could have kept football? Because I think that would suck.

Back in the day schools could keep  their football at D3 and had their basketball at D1.  (Which is how Dayton won two Stagg Bowls in the 1980s).  That is, until the NCAA disallowed that, which is how the FCS non-scholarship conferences were formed.

But I don't think that was an option back when MU dropped football.

No not that all. I'm personally happy we don't have football, I think it might be the most overrated "action" sport around. But if we were to keep it by downsizing so that there was a framework in place to join the patriot league with Butler and Georgetown then NAIA seems like it would have been the only option.

But I don't know if its allowed to have one program in the NAIA and the rest in NCAA.

You're not. 

Really the only option for a varsity team is FCS, non-scholarship.

and now schools like Dayton have no chance to win a national title, and a minuscule chance to even make the playoffs.
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay
