Go Green, after the entire Ivy League goes varsity we can talk.

Based on the DP's standards, all we need is one more Ivy to sponsor women's rugby, and Dartmouth immediately becomes the most dominant Ivy team.

C'mon Princeton, Yale, Penn, Columbia, and Cornell! Rugby is a heck of a lot more fun than squash!

There are 3 varsity women’s rugby programs in the Ivy League
Dartmouth/Brown/Harvard
5 varsity programs are needed to become an official Ivy League varsity spiort

Princeton women are going to petition to become a varsity
sport this fall

10 years of results are needed to qualify for the DP survey, in its current format.

That participation by "at least half" the Ivy teams was sufficient for the DP.

Why is a fifth team needed?

That was M3's point about ivy status. Mine was about the 10 years for DP consideration.

Probably not a good idea to use the words "And in addition to."

In addition to needing 5 teams to qualify as an ivy sport, you need 10 years of results to qualify for the DP methodology.

I trust most readers understood this point.

Princeton Rutgers already have fine facilities. Any recruiting slots would be a real tough sell.

Ruggers, obviously. The Apple spellcheck will be the death of me.

Can't imagine admissions will be happy about having to give another 10 or so slots to athletic teams.

But adding women's rugby as a varsity sport should make Title IX compliance pretty easy.

With the number of women rowing on two squads plus all the other teams, I would think Princeton would already have as little problem as anybody with a football team, if not less. Besides, they will have a very difficult time making the women’s team varsity without the men’s as well. The men’s alums are the source of the vast majority of funds for the facilities and current team operations.

(semi-serious) when the first transgender team will be approved, or doesn't that matter because they can identify with the team they want to play on

They don't want to give up the after-game kegs.

I suspect that the Princeton men may feel the same way.
