Well said old Eli, and the reason we will never be truly competitive in FCS outside the Ivy. I will never understand why supposedly liberal thinking Ivly schools discriminate against football in favor of hockey,lacrosse, basketball and other D1 sports.

I don't think the Ivies could compete with Power 5 FBS competition on a regular basis. I do believe they could be a decent mid-major FBS league, a la the Sun Belt, MAC, or CUSA. However, most of their games would be within the league with OOC games against teams they could compete with, along with the FCS team or two. Bowl Games need not be a factor. Just a return to the highest overall bracket would help with attendance and the like.

Nothing is cast in stone forever. For years many of us thought they would never see a true spring practice or a tenth game!
