    I'm hoping that after cheering Yale's Lacrosse team onto a National Championship President Salovey will evolve on the issue and allow the football team the same opportunity.

    If Yale wants something, they usually get it. Can't say the same for other teams in the league...

    Cornell may be able to knock off any of the above. But I don't see them doing it on a weekly basis.

    Brown... may see another winless Ivy season.
    What has happened at Brown?

    Wouldn't Harvard and Princeton essentially have to sign off on playoff participation as well for there to be movement on the issue?

    Technically no. I beleive it only takes six votes to change Ivy League rules

    Bingo. When this was reported a few years ago, I said that Brown was finished.

    Same thing caused Dartmouth and Yale (and perhaps Columbia) to go into tailspins in the early 1980s, and Dartmouth again in the late 1990s-2000s.
