If the Ivy Administrators shifted to support a move to FBS and if we could cut a deal with Army and Navy to join us for a new Academic oriented league, I strongly believe that the NCAA would jump at the chance to make a waiver for stadium requirements to create this new league. While the new league would complete with the lower tier conferences in FBS, it would bring a ton of positive publicity to the NCAA.

Equally important, if the NCAA elected to not be flexible to allow a waiver for stadium attendance requirements for this new FBS academic oriented conference, it would lead to a lot of negative publicity for the NCAA. It would imply that the NCAA favors game revenues over supporting higher academic standards.

Small problem: they DO favor game revenues over supporting higher academic standards, and everyone knows it. The NCAA does not give a rat’s patoot about an Ivy/Academy league. They care about preventing the big five conferences from walking away and forming their own Premier Association.
