As long as we have administrative support for this move, I has always been my believed that the NCAA would be flexible to the attendance requirements for a proposed "Ivy Plus Conference" (IL plus Army & Navy) for a move to FBS. Our attendance would not be that much lower than the MAC conference that averages only 16K.

There are numerous political, economic and educational advantages of this waiver. It is not as if the NCAA is providing a recruiting advantage to allow a slightly lower attendance than the MAC conference.

There is no administrative support for this.

Think about it - there is no administrative support for 11 games. There is no administrative support for playoffs. There is no administrative support for scholarships.

This is all a pipe dream.

O - you may be right. But, policies can change over time. No one would have ever imagined Harvard placing emphasis on recruiting top 100 ranked athletes in basketball. This has resulted in a ton of positive publicity for Harvard.

I think that Stanford's ever growing national profile and it evolvement as the nation's most selective major university based on acceptance rates may be changing minds within the Ivy League.

Each of our universities place priority on teaching students how to change with the times. Maybe our administrators can attend one of these lecturs.

I agree that there is little evidence that the NCAA really cares about attendance requirements.

But in 1981, the Ivy schools took the NCAA at its word.

:(

The modest steps are two in number: let us schedule an 11th game, and push Robin Harris to get the NCAA to recognize that Ivy financial aid packages are so generous that we qualify as FCS schools with enough full scholarships that a victory over an Ivy counts for bowl eligibility. With these changes, Yale will be able, in a short amount of time, to schedule service academies, Rice, Duke and other matchups suitable for the school that invented, and then dominated, the sport of football for the first 40 years of its existence. Our more timid peer institutions, including cowardly Harvard, will then see the wisdom of our ways, and will fall into line and schedule contests worthy of institutions that purport to be national leaders, with footprints that have a coast to coast impact.
