Subject: Ivies have been and will continue to be "home and home"

gate, you must be a recent grad. The Ivies are and will be "home and home" games/series. The FBS games are away games and generally provide a "payday" for the visiting FCS school. Both of these are unlikely to change. It's a question of "who" and "how often ?"

Let's get beyond the "Ivy-envy" syndrome. The law of supply and demand of available/desirable schools is "shaking out" and will take care of itself in the marketplace, over time. With careful guidance from the AD and football coaches, of course.

Graduated almost 25 years ago and there's no Ivy envy here or else I would have gone to one. IMO with our transition to the PL, we needed the Ivies in fb a bit more than they needed us - until now. Perhaps due to proximity, Gate would play lowly Dartmouth (proximity?!), unimpressive (rival) Cornell, and sometimes a stronger Princeton team. I got the impression that playing Harvard for a change would mean the Raiders would have to travel b/c the Crimson would not.

Would prefer only one Ivy a season and instead play more from the CAA or have another trip to South Dakota. That would be travel time and money well spent - for now. And finally, UNH and Yale coming to Kerr...gotta make it count at home. So many close calls last season at Delaware, Albany and even Yale.
