Opinions on social media have been plenty since HBCU Sports published a piece regarding the suggestion by Princeton head football coach Bob Surace of an Ivy League-HBCU postseason bowl game.
“Why wouldn’t we work with historically black colleges and play them?” he told SB Nation. “Take a school like Grambling or Howard vs. Princeton or Columbia or whoever. You’re gonna hit a huge number on TV, and you’re gonna sell it out in Atlanta or New Orleans or Washington DC. Why wouldn’t we want to bring more attention?”
Surace’s comment comes from a lengthy SB Nation story examining whether the Ivy League will eventually join the FCS playoffs.

Yes it would be great. The MEAC competes with the IVY league for the same players so they should put each other on their schedules.
