Not being able to stay within 50 of a team is worse than not playing them at all.

But YMMV.

It's possible that Dartmouth could lose as badly to Army in 2022. Do you want to cancel the game?

If the final score is anything remotely close to yesterday's game, I will be extremely embarrassed.

I expect Dartmouth to perform better than that.

Here are my preferences in order:

1) Beat a tough opponent
2) Lose competitively to a tough opponent
3) Lose respectably to a tough opponent (i.e., reasonably close to the point spread).
4) Duck a tough opponent
5) Get humiliated by a tough opponent

Fordham clearly did #5.

Can't argue with that in theory, except to say it's unrealistic to have that choice. In order to have #1 you will need to risk #5.

If Surace thinks that outcome #5 is the most likely result of Princeton playing Rutgers, then he's justified in ducking the game. I don't want Dartmouth playing Alabama or Penn State for the same reasons...

Of course, I think Princeton would do fine against Rutgers. IMHO, outcomes #3 and #2 (in that order) are more likely than #5 if Princeton played Rutgers.

Oh well...

I agree with that formula. I don't want to see Yale play Alabama either. However, I do very much want to see Yale play their historic rivals Army and UConn again.

There isn't any difference at all in caliber of player between Army and Fordham or any FCS program. Army may get a few blue chippers or "4 star" guys by happenstance because they want to go to West Point but overall, there just isn't a huge gap for an FCS team to overcome.
