Because then everyone says that they are just one player short of playing or not playing an event, and we have a bunch of teams that are not actually college teams.
The NCPA exists to host competitions between different colleges. That's not the same as competitions between teams of players who take college classes.
That may seem like an immaterial distinction, but many of our teams are funded based on the fact they are competing in intercollegiate competition, and failure to maintain that standard puts everyone's funding at risk.
It's also not an unreasonable burden to expect that college teams put forth the effort to promote paintball on their campus so that they can find and field 5 players out of thousands of students.
