Just my opinion, but...

Tournaments serve one primary purpose in sports: determining the champion of a grouping where round-robin play is not feasible.

All NFL teams can't play each other, so a process is warranted whereby the most deserving teams are slotted and play down to one champion.

This is no more obviously relevant than NCAA national championships, where 350+ teams play wildly-varying and relatively-limited schedules. The same holds true for state championships at the interscholastic level.

In a grouping where every team plays every other team -- twice -- during the season, what competitive purpose does a tournament serve?

I think the IVY tourney is a great idea.
Do you think the winner of the IVY league tournament is going to the NCAA final four??
Just look at this as an additional opportunity to watch the best IVY teams go at each other.
