Interesting CPTV documentary on the Yale-Georgia Football rivalry. There is talk of Yale playing Georgia again in 2029 to mark the 100th anniversary of the first game played at Sanford Stadium in 1929. I think its a great idea and it would undoubtedly get an NCAA waiver for bowl counter status due to its historical significance.

LOL. Playing the Georgia Bulldogs. Our players are going to get hurt. I'll totally watch the game, but it's not going to be pretty. They better pay us the money they usually pay FCS teams to get beat on their turf.

Stadium holds over 90,000. Payday would probably be in the high six figures. Could buy a new video score board for the Yale Bowl or a new Field Turf Service with a practice bubble with that money. It would also be great for recruiting. The Yale players in the film were all excited about the prospect of playing Georgia. They weren't concerned about potential injuries.

Let's not blow an opportunity to play a Power 5 program like Princton did by not playing Rutgers in 2019 to mark the 150th anniversary of the first football game played. Even if Yale got killed at least the nation would learn that Yale still has a football team, as well as its storied place in football history.

Go independent until they get a invite to the Big Ten or ACC

I'd be satisfied if they could just play one historic rival from the FBS once every 15 years.

Right, a school where kids get Deans fired for suggesting that Halloween costumes aren't the end-all-be-all of life will be right at home in the Power 5, where the best players are one-and-done.

Denial ain't just a river in Egypt.

observer (lower case) is not the Big O. Not than anybody other than GG could equal the Big 0, but that's another thread.

I agree with him. Like most other ivy schools, Yale has many more sports teams than the football factories, what happens to them if there is no league? Playing a game every season or so is different than moving out altogether.

I believe League rules prohibit that. You're either in for all, or out.

Did Princeton see an uptick in recruiting when they scheduled Northwestern?

Cornell for Stanford?

Yale for Hawaii?

I understand that we're more competitive today then we were in the 1980s and early 1990s. But my gut is that scheduling Georgia--whatever other benefits may accrue for Yale--will not get a leg up in recruiting.

There is definitely a correlation between scheduling these types of big profile games and Ivy League Championships. Cornell was Ivy Champions in 1990. Yale in 89. Princeton in 89. All of these Championship teams had classes which were enrolled at the time these games were played.

Then allow me to be the first to congratulate Yale for that one title they are going to win between the 2026 and 2033 seasons!

And you can add the 2014 Yale-Army game to that list of high profile games which ultimately lead to Ivy Championships. The year's Ivy Champion Yale Senior class were all Freshman or Sophmores (medical redshirts) for that game.

Looking at Georgia’s future schedules I see that Austin Peay and Murray St are playing Georgia. If those schools can do it I don’t see why Yale can’t. It would be a great experience for the Yale players to play between the hedges to a crowd of approximately 95,000. The game would give Yale a recruiting advantage in the Ivy League for years.

I think so. It makes sense to me. The benefits outweigh the negatives for both schools. If it’s played I’ll be there,God willing, wearing my Yale blue.

Perhaps you should consider testing yourself with Austin Peay or Murray State first. They surely would be happy to come to New Haven.

No need. Yale is already scheduled to play better teams than that, such as Mercer and Richmond.

Nothing like our best season in decades to get us a wee bit ahead of ourselves.
Puuuhleeeze, no bulldog v. bulldog. We would be humiliated, if not massacred.
Let those pushing for this lunacy suit-up themselves.
Why don't we at least wait and see how we do against Mercer which had the temerity to play Alabama. The Crimson Tide probably took pity on a fellow red state team. Not sure the Georgia bulldogs would feel the same way about us. A yankee blue stater, no quarter.

L et V, if you’re suggesting we let the players vote on playing this game I’ll take you up on that. It’s obvious from the documentary, if you watched it, that the Yale players want to play it. As far as your claims of “humiliation” ask the Yale Basebsll team if they felt humiliated by getting beat handily by the best team in the country at the time, Oregon St. I don’t think you’ll find a single Yale player who regrets playing those games.

Of course the players are for it. Would be disappointed if they weren't. Hardly dispositive.
More importantly, those who've played both (or even watched both) recognize certain innate differences between football and baseball at least until such time as the bats can be used as pugil sticks.

There were those who said that Beckett was crazy when he scheduled Army. I was never one of them. No one calls him crazy for doing that now.

“Ten years it took to schedule this game,” Beckett finally murmured. “People thought I was crazy.”

Suggest we defer this until after we've manhandled Mercer. We don't want them laughing at us below the Mason Dixon line.

Ok. We certainly have time. Just one more point. I agree that obviously Georgia isn't the best FBS match-up for Yale in terms of a competitive game. However, the game has tremendous historical significance which is required for Yale to be able to schedule any FBS program under current NCAA rules. Without the historic game waiver, which Yale utilized for Army, no FBS program will schedule Yale as the game will not have bowl counter status(This rule only applies to non athletic scholarship leagues). So, unless we can find another Stadium Yale opened up 100 years ago, this is Yale's only chance of playing a FBS opponent.

Princeton blew their shot to play Rutgers in 2019. I hope Yale doesn't also let this opportunity go by. If they do we may never see Yale play an FBS opponent again.

The 2-3 best Ivies in any given season can be competitive with the bottom half of FBS in that season. Major powers frequently play teams of such stature. If anything, scheduling that game will give the program something to build towards. It might end up one-sided, but that need not mean it be a slaughter that people are fearing.

One more thing to note is that the enhanced financial packages ARE having a pronounced impact on the product on the field in the Ivy League.
