    This year, I don't think we're missing much. The Patriot League is currently 4-10 this year, And they could be 4-16 after Saturday (assuming Colgate-Furman gets canceled).

    The PFL is 10-7 thus far.

    This is true. We currently aren’t that good. Still, historically the top of the PL vs top Ivy makes for some really good FCS games. Some of those were very long standing rivalries. No reason to give that up.

    Yale has been following a different path in OOC scheduling. Besides scheduling Army Yale attempted to schedule UConn, but their overture was rebuffed. They have continued to schedule the best of the Patriot League, as well as CAA and Southern Conference opponents.

    The question is, are they going to reverse this within our lifetimes? They should realize that some of their traditional rivalries have gone down the drain due to the P5 conferences' greed as well as their usual regional opponents dropping football for good.

    Now they should find new scholarship football opponents (i.e. south of the Potomac and west of the Alleghenies) to possibly diversify Ivy football recruiting bases. Else, they should go NESCAC - style and I'll be a bandwagon fan for good.
    Tim Murphy Retirement Watch: now ongoing ... so that Harvard football will move toward relevance again.

    In the meantime, I will cheer for Stony Brook and ETSU besides the Crimson.

    Question is, can Yale schedule HBCU, MVFC, Big Sky (besides Cal Poly), Big South, OVC and SLC teams? That way, they are going to show the rest of the nation that Ivy football still exists, despite on a lower division.

    Hope for Yale vs Georgia in 2029 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Sanford Stadium. The nation will then be reminded of Yale’s prominent place in football history, and at the same time be reminded that they still have a football team.

    You guys still play Colgate, and it is greatly appreciated on our end.

    Dartmouth's future OOC opponents include Colgate, UNH, Towson, Army, and various PFL teams

    We do have an opening in 2022. Maybe Merrimack?
