"For one team to have that kind of talent, simply isn't good for the league. The same, of course, is true in basketball."

While I agree that an unbalanced league benefits no one, if one team raising its game causes others to raise theirs, it's a great thing for the league. In basketball, where it Harvard, Yale and Princeton have all successfully recruited 4-star, Top 100/150 players over the past couple cycles - something that would have seemed ridiculous for any single team to do a decade ago. Dartmouth just pulled in a legit, 3-star point guard from California. Columbia has taken all-state kids from Illinois the past couple seasons. Penn just followed its steal of AJ Brodeur with a class that includes a kid with power five offers and another with top-tier A10 offers.

I can't speak directly to football, because I don't cover it and don't pay terribly close attention to it, but in basketball, the rising tide has lifted most boats.

Bagnoli has said that Ivy football talent is better than ever.

Ivy teams have recently beaten UNH, Nova, and Army.

Seems every team is getting several guys with BCS offers.

Don't be surprised to see Ivy teams awarded Lambert Cups in the next decade.

It all depends on perspective. Al was accustomed to looking at the League from the top down. Now he's looking at it from the bottom up. Looks a bit tougher from down there I'm sure.

No one knows more about looking up from the floor while flat on his back
than Foehi.
