“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.
