M3, I can understand your frustration, but here are a couple of points that might help.....

1) Ivy students have shown that they will support their teams if they perceive that the school is making a best-effort to compete in other sports where they are nationally competitive.

and

2) Back in the day, when Ivy schools were routinely playing in front of tens of thousands of fans, we all know that those crowds were not loaded with students- the student bodies were never big enough. Rather, the strong majority came from the general public. Fans from the general public are what's missing now.

"when Ivy schools were routinely playing in front of tens of thousands of fans."

When was that? The 40's?

"...without The Game inflating the average attendance"?

So you're saying Yale was averaging 65,000 if The Game was at your place since the average wasn't inflated. Anyway I don't think you're remembering very well these days. Ivy Teams(Plural) are not defined by just 2 or 3 schools.
