It needs a new NBE FB rivalry as well as playing them in BB and their Olympic Sports. If UConn is scheduling Patriot League teams like Lafayette for FB they might as well schedule NBE BB rival Georgetown / Patriot League FB for a homecoming game and an easy victory. Pay them to show up too. Spread the wealth with pay games for their BE FCS counterparts. 04-cheers

I mean, sure, play a game with Nova every now and again, might as well. Georgetown and Butler are non-scholarship, though, so there's no reason to play a game with them since it straight up doesn't count.

Lafayette is then too. So why play one and not the other. They are both in the Patriot League. 07-coffee3

My understanding is that teams in the Patriot other than Georgetown offer at least the minimum number of scholarships to be an FCS counter, while Georgetown gets to stick around in the Patriot as a non-scholarship program essentially because they're Georgetown.

Checked it out. Your right about Georgetown. The President refuses to go the scholarship route for football. Back in the 80's when my cousins played against each other - one for Lafayette and the other for Lehigh - they received financial grant and aids based on financial need not scholarships for football. The Patriot League has now moved to the FCS scholarship 63 player limit minus Georgetown. 07-coffee3

Not just to be a counter for FBS games, but for honesty. A lot of those players were recruited and on scholarship, just not a true "football" scholarship.

Temple-Delaware, Syracuse-Colgate, BC-Holy Cross: a lot of old rivalries were lost in the northeast. I think Rutgers had rivalries (or at least yearly games) with Lafayette, Lehigh, and an ancient one with Fordham.
We were in a conference (sort of) with Lehigh and Lafayette for 40+ years and those games were annual fixtures on our schedule.

We also played Princeton nearly every year until 1980. With the schools about 20 miles apart it could be a great rivalry and we should play them in a lot of Olympic sports. In a perfect world they woudl have been on our schedule for football this year.

The problem with UConn's former conference mates scheduling them in football is that we don't have that many OOC games to give and it will take a while for those spots to open up. UConn may have the available dates to schedule multiple Lambert schools at once but the rest of us don't.

Rutgers played Princeton in the first ever college football game and beat them Nov. 6, 1869. They played again at Princeton and lost.
Both schools have been awarded the National Championship for that year with split 1 and 1 seasons. 02-13-banana 02-13-banana 02-13-banana COGS COGS COGS 04-cheers

Did they throw a parade back then for winning the national title? And how did people attend games back then without cars? Would they ride their horse and watch via horseback?
