There are significantly smaller metros with 2+ D-I programs. Louisiana Tech and Grambling State are both in Lincoln Parish, Louisiana (pop. <50,000). Virginia Tech and Radford share a metro area with 150,000 people. Spokane has over a half million people in the area. College sports didn't evolve like the pros. There are D-I schools in some odd places.

true, but I guess im thinking this because Spokane is not only smaller, but in the absolute middle of nowhere.  at least VT and radford are in a part of the country that high population isnt far.

For the one or two who might be interested, below is the list of teams we have played over 50 times and the number of games played.  Perhaps once there was a rivalry, but most are long gone.

Drake - 83

Cincy - 78

Tulsa - 74

Bradley - 70

Louisville - 67

Dayton - 62

DePaul - 62

SIUC - 58

Memphis - 58
