An 11th game is a fine idea, especially if it is a first place tiebreaker. No harm in Ivy teams playing each other twice in same season.

People continue to use North Dakota State as an example of a playoff team but the fact is lots of other teams get into the bracket: http://www.ncaa.com/interactive-bracket/football/fcs

It's not that scary. It's part of the collegiate experience and I will repeat what I have been saying for a while - the Ivies have been selling themselves short for many years. Some excellent (ranked) teams have missed out on seeing how far they could take that excellence into the I-AA/FCS playoffs over the years.

It's an outdated Ivy policy. Well meaning but unnecessary.
