I think that Rutgers is likely sincere when they say, even through back channels, that they don't want to play Princeton.
The reason has been articulated by Son of Eli, you, me and others. The game will likely be competitive and there is a real risk that Princeton wins. Had the anniversary been in 2016 and late in the season when both teams' profiles were evident, I'd like Princeton to win, even in New Brunswick.
That's a huge disincentive for Rutgers, suffering an embarrassing defeat not only on national television, but during a much hyped celebration game complete with fanfare and hoopla.
