It's one thing to organize Columbia vs Penn, that can almost be done on the fly. Organizing LSU vs Tennessee is an entirely different logistical thing.

So I don't see this happening at the FBS level.

I’m fairly confident that the rules for playing the games are similar...11 players per side on the field, four quarters per game, etc.

The big differences are the levels of fan interest and financial outcomes.

In the midst of a world-wide pandemic, I believe that fan interest and financial profits will not be university presidents’ priorities. On the other hand, providing college-athletes with an opportunity to continue their passions and trade may be a legitimate concern.

In a world-wide pandemic, I seriously doubt that the college athlete's desire to "continue their passion and trade" is any kind of concern at all. 07-coffee3

But that wasn't really the point. Ivy League football is almost club-level stuff among close neighbors so just doesn't require the same degree of logistics that P5 games do.

Possibly, Ivy football is better than Georgetown’s historic level...because all NCAA competition can learn something from the Ivy approach.

Totally missed the point, yet again.
