Another great season for Penn and can't tell you how happy I am to see my son (5th year) leave with three Ivy League Championships. It has been a tremendous experience and he has made lifelong friends and memories. The players and parents in the Ivies are top notch, this forum is outstanding, but nothing is better than beating Harvard three times in five years!

Looking to 2017 the Quakers return 17 starters, 10 on defense, a very promising new QB and are in good shape for a three-peat. Go Quakers!

who is your son? In any case, thanks to him and his teammates.
They provided 4 years of excitement and joy (as well as 3 sleeves of ProV1's for me).

They will always look back on these years with pride and affection. I wish them all well as I do for all the Ivy seniors. Good on them all.

Glad that your son is having a memorable experience at Penn. The alumni are most grateful for their efforts and admire how they represent the University and the extended Penn football family.

Coaching changes? Yale? Cornell? How often do assistants shuffle around? What about OC from Princeton; would he leave? Harvard, Penn, Columbia & Dartmouth stable at HC & assistants? Who are the best coordinators out there?

Yep I think Penn is in a very good position to compete for the title again next year. No doubt Torg will be missed tremendously but the returning defensive players and the other offensive skill positions are very strong. Go Quakers!!!

Princeton should be even better next year. Losing a few key players, but the next year's senior class was probably the best recruiting class in Princeton history.

Holuba, one of the top recruits that Princeton has bagged in a long time, and Lovett have become POY-caliber players. Sweigart, Ramirez, Desire, Fossatti and possibly even Melancon are other juniors who could be all-Ivy next year (the first two already are).

But when you look at the depth chart, there are more sophomores (12) than juniors (8) including 2 OL starters, the team's top RB, #2 WR, and 5 of the 11 spots on the 2nd team defense (Fossatti is the lone junior among the D's 2's). It seems that the Class of 2019 recruiting class has out-performed the rising seniors.

My biggest concern is the front 7, which was the engine of this year's dominant defense and is losing a lot of play-makers to graduation.

I think Princeton will be good again next year, especially at RB (Volker and Quigley) with most of the OL and with Lovett back. It will be interesting to see if they stick with the two-headed monster approach at QB with Kevin Davidson as the designate thrower. Kanoff and the three senior receivers and TE will be missed but Horsted is outstanding and several other underclassmen played a lot this year and had some good moments (Bech, Adomitis, Parkinson).

On defense, Schlossberg, Catarius, Hylton, Paige, Wolff, Williams, Jones, Olson, Huffman and Gales will leave a huge hole. But the Tigers rotated a lot of players this year and with Holuba, Desire and Fossatti back and Tyler, Floyd, Wagner and Bryant and others playing bigger roles, they should still be very good although perhaps not the dominant unit they were this year. There are also several players on the roster who came in with great expectations (Rudinski and Lane to name just two), I don't know it has been injuries or slow development that have kept them off the field.

Kanoff will be back next year (medical red shirt).

Offense should be good.
Defense will be the challenge .

I know Kanoff is eligible to play another year if he does not attend school in the spring 2017 term - is it confirmed that he is going to exercise that option?

Princeton faces a real rebuilding job on defense. Tigers lose their top five tacklers plus 3 of 4 defensive backs.

Are you saying that Holuba and Desiree weren't in the top 5 tacklers?? I suspect that Catarius was in that group, but Fosatti was practically as good and will most likely be better next near (probably all-ivy). They had a lot of depth on defense and played many different players which is why the second half was where Princeton excelled.

My source, who works with the team and is quite reliable, says yes.

Congratulations to Former Penn Dad..as of last week I am a former Green Dad and share your pride in our sons...

Looking to Dartmouth 2017, alot of starters returning on Both sides of the ball. On Offense, have to replace Morrison and Davis on line. Many young receivers..

On defense, biggest loss is obviously Flo but also loosing a good portion of D backs and several parts of the defensive line rotation, but have many guys with significant experience. Jackson Perry to return..

Specialists, loosing four year starters at punter and long snapper. Kicker returns for senior year.

I am very optimistic!

Stats show the five top Princeton tacklers were Catarius, Hylton, Williams, Schlossberg and Huffman. All gone. Good news is that lb Rudinski, out all year with injury, will return.

Thanks for that info, so there should be some talent at LB next year with Fossatti, Wolff, Johnson and Wagner returning from this year's rotation and Rudinski and Percival back in the mix. The Tigers will also need a few of the underclassmen to play their way onto the depth chart.

Are there any other returning players who have been out with injuries who are expected to contribute next year?

in stating that Dartmouth will have the best receiving core in the league. Two starting TE's return along with a very talented young group of wideouts including this yrs ROY. they are almost 3 talented deep at wideout . Even though he got limited playing time this yr because of injuries keep an eye on a kid named Hawkins

"Elementary my dear" is the best in the league without question and "Missing" is returning second teamer for Penn but who is going to throw them the ball?????

The receivers for D are very capable of making big plays and putting up points. But, their success is entirely dependent upon an OC that's willing to challenge the defense and a QB with the skills to deliver the ball. D has to quit relying on 'dink & dunk' passes and the other teams turnovers to stay in the game.

Hey 4-6 is a big improvement over last year and we probably should have won the Brown and Dartmouth games. Water under the bridge. Yes Cornell has some key graduation losses, but we get back QB Dalton Banks, plus all four running backs and our fullback. On defense we lose some linemen, but team captain LB Miles Norris who was out for this season with an injury will be back for a 5th year. Almost all our linebackers and secondary come back next season as well. Next season the focus needs to be a more balanced offense (i.e. consistently running the ball) and stopping the run on defense.

Talking with some former players the team needs a better strength and conditioning coach. Some of the players and parents said they were good at training lacrosse and hockey players, but the football players are not building the mass and power they need for football. Again that's what some former players and parents have mentioned during tailgates this fall.
