Agreed. The Ivy Agreement was a noble endeavor to counter the growing abuses of big time football. Mission accomplished. The 1978 NCAA ruling put the final nail in the coffin guaranteeing that never again would any Ivy team reach the heights that the progenitors of the sport once held. Like any reaction to a crisis, the pendulum has been shifted completely to the opposite side. Spring practice and a 10 game season have helped to bring it back toward center, but it's time to complete the job and let the teams play under the same rules as the rest of IAA. I have no problem with retaining the no scholarship rule or any other rule that could be reimagined to stack a team with ringers in the fashion of some of teams through the 40's. 11-12 games and participation the the playoffs will do nothing to that end and merely prolong the pendulum shift.
