But after much soul searching, here's how I think it'll shake out. The hint for my thinking is that you have to respect the "Al Bagnoli effect" on this league:

1. Penn

2. Harvard

3. Princeton

4. Columbia

5. Yale

6. Dartmouth

7. Brown

8. Cornell

We beat two of the four last year and gave away games to the other two.

On your way out of the stadium, don't forget to pick up where you laughed off.

Yeah, impossible. The 2016 Lions finished above Dartmouth, tied with Cornell, and one win behind Brown and that other place. Clearly, picking up one single win could never happen.

How often does Columbia beat someone twice in a row?

Off the top of my head... I'm guessing Princeton from the early Surace years.

Columbia beat Rutgers twice in a row in 1970-71.

Clearly, the other teams wouldn't improve either. LOL

Oh yeah, I forgot. One of the laws of physics, right? Everyone improves and no one declines. LOL, LMAO, and all of the other hilariously clever sign-offs.

Doesn't change the fact that Columbia isn't finishing above Yale, Dartmouth, Brown and Cornell. :)

if they did finish above other 3. I just made bet with jake 100 bucks head to head 100 higher finish in league standing loser donates to opposing Team's Friends of Football.

Nothing would thrill me more than to see "The Little Sicilian" have positive impact on program and have good record and out of the cellar and into the middle in the league's standings. Would be good for the whole league

Actually I would love to see Yale finish below Columbia just to see the scorn rained down upon Tony Romo, nothing personal Yalies but it would be good theater

but I think you meant to ask where was I?

right here bemoaning the fact that they beat us on last second FG after we missed a 47 yarder seconds earlier. No question we had disappointing Ivy results.

Doesn't change what I wish for this year, Tony Romo's squad finishing below "The Little Sicilian's"

I agree don't forget the Al Bagnoli effect. Look for huge strides this year and 4th place is with in reach.

I agree with Jake--Columbia will finish in fourth place or higher. Much depends on whether our coaching staff finds a gem amongst the nine running back candidates.

If Columbia gets at least a split with the Ps, then they may be for real.

If not... more of the same.

Columbia really needs Hill to stay on his feet and injury free. Over the last several games he was excellent. I thought that the last game of the year, at Brown, was the best I have seen him play. So if he plays well, we'll be in good shape.

Only on a Columbia blog........4th really? Maybe but you have Cornell dead last four spots behind Columbia. We have our entire defense coming back and probably the best QB and RB in the league this year. I am not saying Cornell will win the Ivy League title, as I still think Princeton and Harvard will claim the top spot(s), but we play the Lions this year in Ithaca and hopefully the snow will be flying. Better pack your woollies.

I hope and expect Cornell to make a better showing than last place as well.

No doubt, Coach Bags and staff have recruited a much Columbia deeper squad than what the program is accustomed to. Though as a unit they have not yet turned the corner. They have to have at least a .500 season before pundits predict them cracking the upper echelon of the IL.

I am a broken record on this issue but my opinion is what has held them back has been stable QB play. The defense seems fixed which is a miracle. However, they have not had above average quarterbacking, and also appear missing go to receivers. Now they need RBs too having squandered the talent of now graduated Cam Molina and Marcorus Garrett.

I am wearing a Columbia Lions t-shirt on this hot silicon valley friday coincidentally.

How unfortunate the
