So you think 3 of 8 would be very competitive in the playoffs?And this is based on comparative scores or one off games, very scientific data. I say 1 of 8. And how badly would the other
5 do? Aren't we talking about the whole league or just the three that have separated themselves from the rest? I don't drink.

I actually watch the games. Did you watch Villanova play JMU? Did you watch Holy across play Villanova? Did you watch Harvard play Holy Cross?

I also don’t respect the constant ragging on Columbia and the rest of the Ivy League.

A little sensitive, perhaps? The question was how good is Ivy League Football, right? How many skilled players in the league would make an impact in other Leagues that send teams to the FCS Playoffs? Your comparative scores analysis is garbage.

Well, if we're going to compare Ivy League teams against other FCS teams which are winning or close to winning their own conference titles, doesn't it make sense to use our top teams in that comparison?

You're basically asserting that our weaker teams would be defeated by their strongest teams. That's not exactly a breaking news story.

It's only reasonable to compare like against like: Dartmouth Princeton and Harvard against their best teams. Besides, how many conferences can claim three 9-1 teams?

Maybe you should start drinking.

With most of those 9-1 wins coming against the bottom of Division 1 football. How many Ivy League guys have been drafted in the last 5 years? That’s an indication of football talent measured against others, wouldn’t you agree?

Harvard defeated a 9-1 team. Princeton defeated a 9-1 team. Dartmouth defeated two 9-1 teams.

No other conference can claim that.
