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.
