Very interesting POV, from a non-ivy source.

Discussion of redshirting especially: "However, Allen, in one of the most suspicious press releases of all time, redshirted in all but name."

Also the possible reason for advantage in home games.

One wonders if the administrators, who generally seem intent on not providing any special favors to football (such as avoiding playoffs) have been aware of, or may seek to rein in, such practices.

The AI is the vehicle for Ivy discrimination against football. No other Ivy sport is subjected to such discrimination. The “banding” requirements of the AI lower the quality of football recruits. Accordingly, the overall numbers of recruits is relatively meaningless in terms of overall quality.

The AI also ensures that a substantial number of Ivy football recruits never play in the games. While it’s nice to see large numbers of players dressed on the home sidelines as a reward for supporting the program, it’s also indicative of the “academic filler” effect of the AI.

Analyzing Ivy football without accounting for the effect of the AI, is akin to reviewing a car without mentioning that it has an engine which limits its speed to 50 mph.
