    Still kind of wish Georgetown would have taken NDSU's offer of a game in 2010.

    At a distance, Georgetown appears to be struggling to fill future schedules given the widening recruiting gap.

    The Ivy's last-place team beat UNH in 2016.

    UNH got to the second round in the FCS playoffs that year.

The Service Academies do have limits on the number of Total Official Visits they can provide, but I think they have ‘special’ rules allowing them to bring in more prospects on Official visits than other D1 FBS programs. Not sure of the numbers or if that rule still is in place, but I know it used to be.

    * My education is a blend of public & private. I can, therefore, with some certainty, confirm your count of 31 is accurate.
    Ivies are not subject to NCAA athletic aid limits since all their aid is need based. In reality Harvard Yale and Princeton with their extremely generous need policy for all students have a substantial advantage in recruiting. The only limitations for Ivies is their own rule limiting recruited players to no more than a rolling average of 30 over a 4 year period and the Academic Index.

    That's completely irrelevant. Missouri State almost took out, has taken out top Big Sky teams and still struggled in the MVFC. If this one off was correct then NDSU would be FBS champs and the Ivy League the new SEC. Clearly not the case.

    Call your AD, and ask them to schedule a MVFC team. I think it would be fun to see.

    Dartmouth is closing in on them.

    I think it was just a few years ago Yale traveled to California and beat up on Cal Poly. (I think it was Yale, sometimes my memory remembers things wrong.)

    Perhaps so but the current imbalance has lasted for years without much movement.

    It was 2013 and Yale beat Cal Poly, I believe 24-13. Wouldn't exactly say "beat up", though.
