There is nothing to be gained by a trip to the Dakotas in winter. Fans could watch it on some form of television coverage. The players however, would love the experience.

But as I have pointed out, the likelihood of playing a Dakota team in the first round would be unlikely. It would be a manageable game to get to. ...and despite the curmudgeon opinions to the contrary, a fine way for the players to wrap up the season.

...the seemingly-simple solution hasn't been instituted:

Make Ivy participation in the playoffs optional.

Each year, by a certain date, each institution must declare whether or not they would accept a playoff bid, should one be extended. One vote per school, handled as they see fit (presumably hierarchical, with players, coaches, AD and President, in ascending order, voting yay or nay).

Those who choose not to participate, don't have to. Those who would like to, can.

we all know why it won't be adopted. It means loss of control.

Plus Harvard could claim that this approach undermines their recruiting when players know they, alone, won't be going to any playoffs, and is contrary to the ivy agreement to have a level playing field. Now I know that is akin to arguing you cannot be penalized for your own blockheadedness, but it's not like we haven't seen this attitude before.

Suspect Walter Camp and Percy Haughton would have made a deal where the loser of The Game had to go to Montana for post-season to annually fight descendants of Sitting Bull. Makes sense; Custer had a company commander named Reno.
