English translation:Division One University
Explanation:
American universities are divided into three sports divisions according to size. Division one schools are the largest and usually the best. (There are some small, but excellent programs that have been"grandfathered-in" to division one, but that´s unusual) Full athletic scholarships can only be given in division one sports. If the school plays division two baseball they can´t provide any athlete with a "full ride." Check out the NCAA webpage and you will find all the rules and regulations.
