GG makes some great points.

There is no question that the quality of play and average rating of recruited athletes has improved in recent years. As noted in several prior threads, there are two key factors driving this improvement. First, the vastly improved financial aid packages clearly makes the Ivies increasingly competitive with FCS and FBS athletic scholarships. Second, the quality of the jobs post-graduation for student athletes also are dramatically improving. Each of the Ivies is developing an ever-growing pipeline to the nation's most coveted positions in IB, PE, VC, consulting and high tech with remarkable starting salaries, bonuses, and fringe benefits that are in line with what starting MBAs earned a decade ago. If you talk to a large cross section of recent student athletes about their Ivy experiences, you will find that some may grumble a bit about the Ivy athletics, but in almost all cases, they are so grateful for the academic experiences and the post-graduation professional opportunities offered to them.

While all of us wish the Ivies generated better attendance and broadcast viewership, I believe that the quality of play will continue to improve.
