I agree with Ivy Sports Junkie as a cross alignment with the MAC along with the Patriot League and the CAA would make a lot more sense. I have always said we should eliminate FCS or I-AA as we don't use that classification in basketball, soccer, lacrosse, etc. While I am also a Syracuse fan it pisses me off to no end when their fans call us a I-AA school during our annual lacrosse game. There is no such thing as NCAA I-AA lacrosse and it shouldn't exist in football either. Siena College plays a lot of good teams in basketball with an occasional upset, they're not a I-AA school.

The problem with Ivy League football is the administration at least at Cornell could give a "Rats A.. about football. The theory is if we really suck at football that some how will improve our academic ranking. Meanwhile we have 14,000 undergraduates drinking themselves under the table every weekend because with the exception of hockey our sports suck and there is nothing else to do on campus.

The Ivy League, CAA, Patriot League and MAC would have a lot of inter-play.

Its time for CFB to go back to Division I, period.

For those who doubt the Ivy LeGue can compete on the field with FBS teams, there's around 20 FBS teams with liver ranked recruiting classes than Yale. This is not an anomaly, but a 3 year trend. If somehow the Ivy League wax rd addicted as FBS, the recruiting fir the Ivy League would improve still further. Even at red FCS level the Ivy League can compete with the bottom tier of the FBS. If the Ivy League was reclassified they would be a solid mid major conference stronger than the Sun Belt, Conference USA, MAC, or Mountain West.

That's lower ranked, not liver ranked. Need to start proof reading these BEFORE I hit send.

If somehow the Ivy League waxs reclassified as FBS, the recruiting for the Ivy League would improve still further. Even at the FCS level the Ivy League can already compete with the bottom tier of the FBS. If the Ivy League was reclassified they would be a solid mid major conference stronger than the Sun Belt, Conference USA, MAC, or Mountain West.

Thanks for bringing this to light. The issue has never been whether or not the Ivies CAN move up....rather its been a matter of will.
