This is a coaching discussion board for jobs. It's no just for DI. It's all relative and not any easier to develop an all around DII program than DI. That is just stupid to say. But what the people on these boards that are not coaches have no clue on is budgets and scholarships and the total cost at each school! You can be the best coach in the world but if you can not get a kid into your school or get them their for a reasonable cost it doesn't matter.
It is easier to develop talent to a national level at d2 than at d1. That is not stupid to say its facts. D2 has a lower standard for national participation. Good D2 and midmajors are typically getting the same talent. Do not get it twisted. And Adams is very easy to get in, cheap, fully funded, and has a very generous budget. So not the best choice.
Everything you are saying is correct except for the part about Adams State being fully funded (It actually has less than half the number of scholarships allotted for track and field by the NCAA) and having a generous budget (It has always been heavily dependent on State funding, which has been cut due to declining tax revenue).
While the best choice no doubt includes much more than simply doing more with less, that is an area in which Coach Martin has few peers (in any division.)
