All really good points. What's the point of being FCS if we don't compete in its postseason tournament? It makes more sense to be FBS and shun the stupid bowl system. I guess the argument is the stadium requirements, but if we really wanted to address that, I think the universities could get their stadiums up to the requisite standards.

There is absolutely no incentive for Army and Navy to join some form of "new" Ivy league - at least not for football. If they declined to join over thirty years ago there is even less reason for them to become an Ivy now.

It was my understanding that Army and Navy declined in 1982 since it would require them to voluntarily drop down to FCS I-AA in football if they joined the Ivy League. That was a deal breaker for Army and Navy.

In contrast, this our hypothetical new academic oriented Ivy League, including Army and Navy, would be part of FBS.

Its all about FCS. Newk is correct about the FCS and the playoffs. Its pointless to be in the FCS if the playoffs aren't an option.

Stadium size? Low-cost bleacher additions could be handled fairly easily, one would think.
