    Outgoing Cornell AD on Ivy League scheduling and playoff participation

    At least he does understand what some of us fans are desiring for...

    https://omny.fm/shows/between-the-li...al-education-a

    Noel goes on to voice his support for starting the FB season earlier, allowing teams to have bye weeks and making the conference champion eligible for the FCS Playoffs. “To be prepared for that first game knowing the opponent is going to have two games under their belt is really a tough challenge for Ivy schools…and I would love to see the Ivy champion go to the Playoffs.”
    Will FCS football survive the mess created by the NIL saga?

    The players, coaches, and fans all agree. I, personally, would be happy with an 11th game and an earlier start to the season. One thing at a time.

    What prevents Cornell from scheduling games at Week 1? The Ivy League isn't kicking them out.

    If the Ivy League ever did kick someone out, Cornell or Penn would be the first to go.

    I think postseason participation is more likely than an 11th regular season game. But I'll believe any development when I see it.

    Nah...in remembrance of the U. of Idaho students who were murdered in November, as well as the Vandal community as a whole in the wake of said tragedy.

    As a Midwesterner I'm interested to hear why that would be.
