I guess is this is a subject where I part company with a lot of my fellow Ivy boosters. I have little to no interest in watching the FCS post season games and only a modicum of interest in seeing the Ivys compete in them. If top teams in the FCS are the ones we want to play and if that helps recruitment then add them to the regular season schedule. Highly doubt we are losing recruits because of not having a chance to participate in FCS playoffs. Emphasis should be on adding an 11th game so that all Ivy players and fans get more enjoyment with a guaranteed longer season.

Amen. Every other Ivy sports team competes for the Division I NCAA Championships every season. Ivy football is not allowed that privilege, despite essentially being the founding fathers of the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. in 1904. Why should they even consider playing in some makeshift category that was created to cut them out of the hierarchy in the TV money revolution of 1980. btw, Happy New Year.

I couldn't agree more.
