Former Ivy executive director Jeff Orleans was interviewed about a possible upgrade in Ivy football ambitions back in the 90's, back when Northwestern, Duke and Stanford were all perpetually bad. When the interviewer asked Orleans whether the Ivies could aim to combine high level academics with FBS football like N, D and S did, he responded, "How's that working out for them?"

At the time, Orleans was correct.

Orleans was extremely short sighted. Robin Harris has been a big improvement.

I'm not sure Harris always believes her own propaganda.

But at least she issues propaganda. Seemed too often that Orleans didn't even bother to try...
