The Patriots are the only conference which attempts to mimic the AI in some fashion (e.g. higher academic standards for athletes than at most schools). If they can't offer as many "scholarships" as the Ivies, they can only pick from the shallow end of the AI-qualified pool.

Not to say that Patriot standards meet Ivy standards, but if middle-class suburban kids at the Ivy AI floor are great players, they now have access to play in the Ivies in a way that they didn't have before.

The sea change in how aid is awarded has led to much stronger Ivy recruiting.

The most likely retaliation will be for the Patriot League to dump whatever academic indices they currently use, to allow their coaches to get better talent than Ivy schools.

Among other things, the PL does not allow for redshirting or maximum scholarships permitted under FCS rules.

I'd imagine that they'd implement those before they ditch the AI.
