    Maybe the champ could keep it to two TD's but I doubt it. How would be ever know. As far as I am concerned it would be a 4 TD beat down against virtually every team in that conference unless they are willing to prove us wrong.

    Yes. Unfair to the athletes when you don't let them compete for a championship.

    NDSU would curb stomp every Ivy team by at least 4 TDs and the Ivy Champ or best team might hang around a little longer because Coach K took the foot off the pedal.

    Maybe, we’ll never know until they let their teams play in the playoffs.

    No argument from me. I wish NDSU would schedule a better Ivy FB team but they would not come to Fargo.

    Depends on the year and the IL opponent. The top IL teams are really good. It is a damn shame they don't compete in the playoffs but that doesn't take away from the actual quality of their teams.

    Yale plays Mercer this season which should be a good barometer nationally. The IL does have some pretty good CAA scalps in recent years....

    It's less about Fargo and more about scheduling. Ivy teams don't begin until week three of the season, where the MVFC season begins in week four.

    This also begs the question if NDSU would return the game. A home game with Robert Morris is easier to sell than a road trip to Yale.

    In order to justify the travel the Ivy League schools prefer to schedule opponents in recruiting hot beds or where there is significant alumni. North Dakota doesn't fit either qualification. I think you are much more likely to see Sam Houston State or James Madison scheduled by an Ivy school rather than North Dakota State for that reason. Those are two opponents I would love to see Yale schedule. Another is Delaware. By recently scheduling Mercer and Richmond I think Yale is moving in the direction.

    I absolutely think NDSU would do and H and H against a top Ivy program and I think you would be surprised how many people from out here would go to that game on the east coast.

    I would go out for a game in a heart beat. Have always wanted to take in a game at some of the Ivy's and wander around campus.
