Mr. James is correctly focused on the entire body of work.

Princeton beat Harvard twice, although trailing until last second shots. Harvard could have won both games. Regardless, the season performance and all ratings correctly show that Princeton had a much better season than Harvard did. Nevertheless, the matchups made this rivalry fun to watch.

Yes, Dartmouth beat Penn twice. However, over the course of the season, Penn was rated much higher and won more games. Against common Ivy opponents, Penn was 6-6 while Dartmouth was 2-10.

Was Yale football better than Harvard last year? On one day Yale prevailed (sadly), but over the season Harvard football was better than Yale.

All of which proves that, mirabile dictu, when going head to head Yale was better than Harvard, Princeton was better than Harvard and Dartmouth was better than Penn.

Too many angels dancing on the heads of too many pins.
