Imagine a new IVY League at the IA Level debuting in 1982. In my mind it would have looked like this:

Yale
Harvard
Penn
Princeton
Army
Navy
Rutgers
Rice

Think of the rivalries this league would have had. Season could end with Army-Navy, Princeton-Rutgers and Yale-Harvard.

I like the outside the box thinking. Its fun to re-visit things, knowing what we do know now.

Even without bowl games, Ivy Football should be at the FBS level. Ivies are not nondescript, irrelevant universities. They are highly visible institutions with long proud athletic legacies.

It would be interesting for a panel to convene to chart the course of Ivy Football in the 21st century. I'm not sure the model for the 20th century works now. Attendance bears that out. As long as greater financial aid will keep improving the product on the field, it is a valid study.
