Disappointed at how partisan some of the comments (mostly from Mr. O) have been. I've been around the Ivy block quite a few times at this point (my first Ivy game was in 1963, Dartmouth's very exciting upset of Princeton in season ending game in Palmer Stadium, postponed until November 30 due to dire events in Dallas on November 22 that year).
In the ensuing 50-plus years, I have seen countless Ivy games, and made friends with scores of Ivy grads from all points of the Ivy compass. One thing that this experience proves to me is that, despite unusual Penn-Harvard dominance of past 15 years, nothing is set in concrete, and somewhere in our League, a new Blackman or Cozza will establish himself and with that kind of recruiting/coaching, and a new dominant power will arise to challenge and then overthrow the twin dynasty headquartered in Philly and Cambridge.
Believers in eternal Harvard dominance on the gridiron are going to get their comeuppance from some sector, I hope the sling that takes down Goliath comes from my alma mater on Long Island Sound!
