IUWW6 Declining attendance at Ivy games is a never ending topic on this board and by now we should have acknowledged if there is one dominating causal factor, it is the demotion of the Ivys to I-AA/FCS.
Doubtful the founding fathers who created our sports league could have anticipated that college football would evolve in a way that would diminish the Ivys to the degree that is has.
Shortly after the demotion to IAA the Ivy League admins attempted to bring in the military academies to help preserve the status of Ivy football. Had Army and Navy joined the League it certainly would have been a plus. That was really the last shot at keeping the Ivy football brand relevant.
