There is no motivation for the Ivy admins to do anything other than maintain the status quo. Most alums and students are apathetic regarding changes and the few who care will continue to diminish in number. Those Ivy prexies who over the years were the staunch advocates of the Ivy's de-emphasis of football can see what their ideals have wrought and say "mission accomplished."
Those of us who would like to see Ivy teams play FBS schools have to accept the fact that such policies as no athletic scholarships, academic indexing, no tackling practices, no red-shirtting, kick offs from the 40 yd line are not the way major college football is played. The Ivys are trapped within their own ideals - as admirable as those ideals may be.

All true. However, don't lose sight of the fact that young men are still playing football at Ivy schools. That's a good thing for those young men because they will learn more valuable lessons from playing football than from the politically correct infestations afflicting the Ivies.

I, for one, will not worry about never getting a bid to the Quick Lane Bowl, the Auto Nation Cure Bowl, the Dollar General Bowl, the Camping World Independence Bowl, or the Motel 6 Bowl (how many people can identify where those games are played?)

I think they got the right 4 teams for the CFP, assuming you want the best teams and not the "most deserving" teams, whatever that is. http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/sorry-penn-state-the-four-best-teams-got-in-to-the-college-football-playoff/

At least one Ivy team has won the Rose Bowl,

I researched further--two Ivy teams have won the Rose Bowl. Likely a good trivia question.

Agree but would not include the no tackling practices. That's one that will evolve into standard practice for all, or the game will disappear.
