If the Ivy League decided to include another university among its ranks...

<p>Hopkins, because Gtown and Duke would never give up scholarships, and Stanford isn't right geographically.</p>

<p>Why not consider an Ivy from the West? Stanford works for me. From the South West, Vandy. From the South, Duke.
Also add to the list: Georgetown, Johns Hopkins, MIT and Chicago.</p>

<p>No way could Stanford work. The difficulty, cost, and time involved in cross country travel for every sport competition makes it infeasible.</p>

<p>If it weren't for basketball, I'd say Georgetown is feasible. Stanford is not an option. UChicago is not strong enough in athletics to compete DI.</p>

<p>Well then again, isn't Cornell hockey godly? Just like Georgetown basketball is?</p>

<p>^they're a very competitive hockey programme. Think on par with a good SEC school at football. </p>

<p>I don't think they're dynastic champions or anything, but they're one of the top hockey programmes in the country.</p>

<p>would john hopkins be willing to give up lacrosse scholarships? they are D3 too so that would be a big jump from every sport but lacrosse. standford would never work because of the distance and because they would dominate in most sports. besides they would never leave a BCS conference that is going to grow if anything.</p>

<p>"Well then again, isn't Cornell hockey godly? Just like Georgetown basketball is?"
yes, but basketball is a sport that brings in money. hockey games arent broadcast all that often, i dont think i ever saw cornell on tv unless they were in the tournament. georgetown is on tv all the time for basketball though, and that brings in a lot of money they would lose if they played in the ivy league</p>

<p>Okay, lets tally it up. Based on the colleges I hear here (Stanford is west coast. It doesn't count). Chicago is not east coast. So it doesn't count either.</p>

<p>JHU:
Georgetown
Duke:
MIT (Although it lacks the sports...and its not a university..hmm idk):
Vanderbilt:</p>

<p>Put a tally next to a college. You can do more than one I guess. Add other colleges if you feel like it.</p>

<p>JHU: 1
Georgetown 1
Duke:
MIT (Although it lacks the sports...and its not a university..hmm idk):
Vanderbilt:</p>

<p>MIT has sports(D-3 except Crew). And it's a Private research University.
Vandy has a better than average b-ball and football program.
Duke Athletics, no.</p>

<p>^Sounds about right.</p>

<p>vanderbilt might actually work, but they would be one of the best programs.</p>

<p>^ Does that mean that you agree with me?</p>

<p>sorta, vanderbilt is probably a lot better than the rest of the ivy in most sports seeing as how they r competitive in the sec</p>

<p>Ivy sports that are allowed to be good are lacrosse, crew, and hockey iirc. There are others, I don't remember them. Vandy has sports that are a bit much for the Ivy.</p>

<p>oh yeah sure</p>

<p>so, good at rich white kid sports lol :)</p>

<p>^ Total win Survivor.</p>

<p>What division does MIT crew participate in? Yeah, I'd rule out MIT just because of D3...</p>

<p>LOL For one moment I thought D!ck University was Duke University
And then I was like oh snap...it is! :D</p>
