Penn loses to Michigan - color me surprised, as Michigan had not defeated a winning team

Yales beats Fairfield in double OT - another surprise, Fairfield is weak

Harvard loses to #3 Penn State in close game


Cornell plays Virginia tonight

Princeton plays Rutgers Tuesday (I suspect game will be postponed if predicted weather materializes)

Brown and Dartmouth off until next weekend

Someone may catch fire as the season moves on, but after a very promising set of preseason rankings, it's looking like the Ivies may get only one team into the NCAA lax tourney. Dartmouth is terrible, Cornell has fallen to laughingstock level, Harvard is so-so, Yale a huge disappointment, and Brown stinks despite having the nation's best player. Maybe Princeton can be a first rate Ivy rep.

As you say, too early to say, early season results always all over the place and everyone has had a an off-day so far. IMO premature to give up on Yale, Penn still looks strong to me. We'll know more about Princeton after they play a good Rutgers team. I'll bet at least two good ivy teams emerge.

Cornell loses to UVA in overtime, but a much better performance by the Big Red this week. No doubt we have a pretty good offense, just not sure our defense can stop anyone. Great crowd on the West Coast for college lacrosse.

I love skimming through these games on youtube!

I'm seeing a lot pf parity across programs. Same as ice hockey. There are a lot more schools investing in recruiting and building programs. So a lot more competition for talent that seems to grow and get more challenging every season.

Brown upsets Harvard 13-8. Yale rolls Cornell. Princeton whips Penn. Big Green at UNC.

Not such a good afternoon for Philadelphia. Villanova - ouch!
Princeton blows out Penn in lacrosse. Don't rank the Tigers #5 in preseason...football team was #5 and that worked out pretty well.
