I understand your position but you also have to understand that football players are going to get exactly what all the other students get at HYP, no more, no less. No one in athletics has any influence over that, nor will they get any. If any of the other Ivies don’t wish to play in that world, they don’t have to. Nor does Lehigh, of course. HYP are doing this as a matter of institutional strategies, and you might want to consider what would happen if any of them decided to just skip the trouble and eliminate tuition entirely.

In other words, if anything the league is headed away from your idea, not toward it. That’s not an endorsement, just a fact.

According to Chuck Burton Patriot League teams can carry no more than 90 players and of those 90 a Patriot can carry no more than the equivalent of 60 full scholarships. The Ivies since they do not give athletic scholarships are not held to any such quota so theoretically they can offer more financial aide than a Patriot League squad.

Interesting and accurate theory which has nothing to do with the discussion. They aren’t athletic scholarships. Out of interest, I did some quick numbers on the Princeton squad. If they have 120 on the roster with the average % getting aid and the average amount of aid per recipient, the Tigers would be giving the dollar equivalent of 51 full scholarships in aid.
