I will take an 11th game over meaningless FCS post season play any time.

An 11th game is for everyone. Playoffs for one team. While I have nothing against playoff participation, an 11th game is far more desirable.

I agree that an 11th game is far more desirable IF it could be scheduled against a FBS program. Under current NCAA bowl counter rules that is nearly impossible for the Athletic Directors of the Ivy League to do.

An extra game against the likes of Butler or Stetson isn't going to energize the fan base or garner much local media attention. Therefore I think FCS playoff participation would do more to boost the brand of Ivy League football right now.

Of course as an avid supporter of Yale football I would be very happy if the Ivy League added an 11th game against any FCS program. I just don't think it would be as exciting for the players or the casual fan as a FCS playoff game.

I would be happy if they started the season 1 week earlier.
