One of the several ESPN shows just spent one entire segment on the fact that 12 seeds are a remarkable 10-10 against 5 seeds over the past five years.

They then reviewed which of this year's 12 seeds is the best bet to spring an upset. Each of the three analysts agreed that Princeton is by far the least likely 12 to win. Last analyst summarized by saying that "You can't set a big enough spread for this game." Ouch. I hope that the Tiggers make these guys look silly.

I was watching the same ESPN analysis. The Ivy League has won 5 tournament games since 2010 but the league still gets no respect. The Ivy League is sending its best to face Notre Dame. Hopefully Princeton will represent the league as well as Harvard. Cornell and Yale have done in the recent past. Go Tigers!

Pretty much everyone was predicting a 13 seed for Princeton at the end of the season, and they got a 12.

That's *some* respect... isn't it?

If Yale was a 12 seed last year at 13-1 then Princeton should have been at least that at 16-0. Also no NIT bids for either Harvard or Yale. Harvard beat Houston on the road and Houston got a NIT bid. Penn beat UCF on the road and UCF got a bid. No respect.

You have to look at the entire body of work.

The 1997-98 Princeton team went 14-0 in the Ivy and was a #5 seed. Of course, they were something like 27-1 overall at the time.
