Surace has won two co-championships in four years, in each case defeating his co-titlist that season, including resoundingly in 2016.

The core of this year's dominating team was around last season, but hobbled by injury.

For a championship team with a lot of two-year contributors, Surace has a lot of players coming back in 2017, potentially including both halves of his quarterback tandem.

2017 will be critical for Surace. With Perry leaving, it would not at all be surprising to see Princeton take a step backwards. On the other hand, the Tigers on January 6 have to be considered the early early favorite, given all the returnees. If he can win his third title in five years, Surace will have taken a major step forward to joining Harvard and Penn as Ivy programs that, as M3 says, reload.

Really not often you get to see Princeton win a Sawhorse Dollar/Governor's Cup game.

Lovett and the rest of the Princeton guys deserve kudos for not making dumbass predictions that they're going to go undefeated next season.

At least not in public.

Sports writers in these polls tend to put extra weight on the previous season's winner(s). P was not picked either time it won its last two co- titles. As I mentioned earlier, while the offense is clearly in better shape, the defense is decimated by graduation. Other teams have more coming back, and I think listing us as favorites at this stage is a big stretch. We had a lot of returnees after Surace's first title, justifying a pre- season favorite status. Injuries, not graduation, decimated that season.
