One small logistical problem. When all those army and Navy fans come to watch their team play at Cornell, Brown, Columbia and Dartmouth, where are they going to sit?

One small philosophical problem: how to reconcile military academies aligning so closely with institutions whose student and faculty populations are decidedly left-leaning and anti-militaristic.

Again, taking a knee during the anthem was *not* protesting the military.

not knee taking. For example, there has been general antipathy to ROTC on campus, with a few exceptions.

A "general antipathy to ROTC on campus" is a great improvement from how relations used to be with the military at Ivy schools.

That was poorly written.

Should have said either "not accurate" or a "step up," rather than "a great improvement."

Wish this Board had an edit feature #238

The reconcilement issue with the military academies has more to do with de-emphasis "leaning" "anti' football attitudes of Ivy admins
