Regarding general strength of top teams, not too much. Yale (2016 v. Baylor) and Harvard (2014 v. Cincinnati) both won first round games as 12th versus 5th seeds, and neither was 16-0 during the regular season. Princeton shot below average for them. Three point reliance will do that to you.

Now, there's no question the bottom of the league is definitely weak.

You are right about the weakness of the bottom of the League. Unfortunately, in an eight team league, the bottom of the league consists of five teams. Penn finished fourth and lost twice to Dartmouth as well as having a losing overall record.

Three teams tied for last with 4-10 Ivy records and overall losing records (Cornell, Brown and Dartmouth). Columbia lost to Dartmouth and finished fifth with losing Ivy and overall records.

I can think of someone who will soon argue these teams did not finish last, they were sixth, as though they have thereby avoided the DFL ignominy.

That beating Penn at the Palestra is just like beating Stanford or Seton Hall on a neutral court.

Huzzah!!!

is correcting your misstatements. There's no end in sight, but it's a good cause, and I don't have to worry about billing clients for time spent on the internet.

I am more than willing to offer my services as a mediator for a modest sum. Several dozen Pro V's or perhaps a bottle of Johnnie Blue. I am sure I can bring you all together after all we are all brothers here. My wife says that I am not argumentative at all, I only yell at the TV a couple of times a day. Plus I just got rid of all my frustrations by going to the indoor range and shooting off couple hundred rounds thru my new S&W Model 27, a very sweet revolver

I wouldn't lump Penn into that discussion. It finished No. 171 nationally and posted a Tier A win at UCF. While Brown, Cornell and Dartmouth all did finish Bottom 100, which is particularly weak for recent years, we're still talking about a league ranked in the teens nationally - as it has been for the entirety of this decade.

My initial model tends to believe that the bottom will be a bit stronger next year, while the top will get a lot stronger. I do fear that will become a trend if recent recruiting continues to follow the same trend.
