I'm not sure that you aren't both sort of agreeing with one another. With inflation in both GPA and SAT scores, it seems that the differential in AI between the eight schools is less than it was. So Harvard isn't prevented from going after the same prospects as every other Ivy. As Observer suggests, it may have been designed to level the playing field, but no longer does.

Correct, FD. If I may beat my metaphor to death. The AI allows those with the best bait, to fish upstream.

As Florida Lion said, I think we actually agree with each other. My point is that the AI was originally implemented to handicap the recruiting of HYP. But events since then have conspired to turn what was intended to limit the freedom of HYP into a perverse system where arguably the HYP recruiting advantage is now codified within the structure of the AI, which I believe is your main point, Sr Punter.

I know that things move in cycles and just a simple thing like a changeover in coaches will necessarily shake up the deck. But right now, it appears that the structural advantage of HYP over the rest of the league is growing. I find that very regrettable.
